Penelope Sews a Dress
So Pen has finally reached an age where her short-attention span is actually quite long enough for her to sit down and sew at my machine. Not only that, but she has good enough eye-hand coordination to actually work the machine — without totally scaring me.
Yesterday, I picked up some fleece (so there would be no hemming to do) so Penelope could make a simple dress. Other than cutting the fleece, she pretty much did every step on her own. She pinned the pattern, figured out what seams she needed to stitch and worked the pedals and feed on the machine. The dress is, as you can imagine, a bit of a mess but she LOVES it.
Here’s a brief video of her doing a little sewing.
And she is, pinning:
And here’s my little Punky Brewster modeling her creation! Bonus points if you can spot my dog!
