There's something about this time of year that makes me want to pull out the sewing machine. I don't know if it's the longer daylight hours or the promise of spring, but it seems to creep up each year (you know, each year since like two years ago when I mastered the art of threading-my-sewing-machine).
Our six girls all share one room with one closet. This means that space is a premium…and things were once again getting out of hand. So I came up with the idea for the girls to each sew a drawstring bag to sort their delicate items.
Kalina asks almost every day if she can sew. And almost everyday the answer is no. After breaking a sewing machine needle off in my finger last year, I am much more leery of letting the girls use the machine. But use they did, and without incident.
One of the things I love about homeschooling is that my children are home all day and have the chance to learn these fun skills. I have also been working on a fun sewing project, but can't show you pictures until I complete part two…
