learning to sew…

Ella decided recently that she wanted to learn to sew (of course I was thrilled) but wanted to make sure we moved at the right pace for her. First we had to pick the perfect 1st project (a doll quilt was her pick) so we got started 🙂

She used a block for a template and started tracing & cutting…

 

Giving sewing a try for the 1st time 🙂

Then it was time to decide on what order to arrange her squares….that took a while 😉

On to pinning & quilting…

 

Adding the finishing touches 🙂

Finally done!! This took her 3 days (or sittings) to make which was pretty fast in my opinion 😉 She is SOOO proud (I am too) that she stuck with it and made something beautiful. She says her next project will be a skirt 🙂
