Connor, my grandson, wanted something to do and asked to use the sewing machine.
At 10 years old, he is old enough to understand the workings of a motor & sharp needle and the results of fingers in the way of a sharp needle. I could not have been happier to oblige his request!
We decided to sew a travel size pillow for his younger brother to use during rest time at Pre-K.
To speed things along, I cut the fabric to size and pinned it together. Connor sewed around the pillow and left an opening to stuff it.
Our project was started and finished quickly, giving instant gratification!
"Nana............ what else can we make today"?
"Hmmm......would you like to make a pillow case for your bed pillow"?
