That was the request from Zoe. She has made ton’s of pillows, pillow cases, pin cushions and sometimes just sewed strips of fabric together. Now, she wanted to make something real.
I thought doll clothes! Always a sure thing! Then when Zoe found her mothers old doll Velvet in a box in the garage, a poor naked Velvet, she wanted to make something for her. Just so happens, since I seem to save everything I still had a pattern that would fit Velvet. Velvet would once again find a little girl to love her.
So, Zoe learned to lay out a pattern. I did mutter something about grain lines, but knew that meant nothing at this point. As long as she hears the sewing terms I am sure someday it will all click. Right now, it was just time to do something real.
Get the dolls ready and excited about getting to get out of the box.
She pinned the pattern and found out you better place pins inside the cutting line.Yes, we will worry about grain lines later.
Finally made it to the sewing machine and sewing something real.
