Crafty Saturday

Kylee got a kids' sewing machine for Christmas, and we finally pulled it out today so I could teach her to sew.  Poor kid, it's May and she is just now getting to use her Christmas present.  So we pulled out the sewing machine, and I could not figure out how to thread the darned needle.  It's a teeny little thing, so in about 2 seconds I gave up and got out my sewing machine (the one that belonged to David's grandmom). 

So she picked out her fabric, and decided to make a pillow case.  She wanted to sew her brother some underwear, but I explained she may want to start out with something like a pillow case.  She started by pinning a hem on what would be the open end of the case.  Devin looks thrilled, doesn't he?

It didn't take her long to get comfortable on the machine.  Devin decided to get out his needle felting stuff so he could make something while Kylee sewed. 

Then after Kylee sewed the hem, she pinned along the bottom and the long side. 

Then she zipped right along those seems, and voila!  Her very own pillow case that she made with barely any help from me!

And Devin worked on his needle felting, making a grape.

Kylee!!! Your pillowcase looks BEAUTIFUL!!! You did such a great job of sewing it together! I know you'll love it since you made it yourself AND it matches your pretty bedroom!!! Devin did a good job on felting! I love how you are both very good with crafts. I love sewing so much and when I get bored, I sew something pretty. Keep up the great work and give Katie a big hug for being such a great mom to teach you these things! Love you, Nana
