I think as a Mother I want to have my kids inherit traits from me that go beyond the bad genes they have most likely already inherited of having their hair turn white by the time they are 30, or having arthritis at a young age. Since cooking is not something I excel in, teaching them how to be creative, and helping them find their artistic gene is a good thing I can pass to them.
Both daughters were happy about the idea of me teaching them to sew--and already they are starting to excel! Since they are both major animal lovers they wanted to make "doggie outfits".
They both caught on quickly and the pictures below show our model (Lacie) showing off their sewing accomplishments.
Chantel made this adorable outfit with the tulle skirt--she made a matching one for Daisy. Janae made the PJ's below with an adorable little ruffled back.
So cute--and so good for their first sewing projects! I can't wait to see what kind of home decorating projects Janae makes with her new sewing skills.
I will end this post with a picture of Bella--hiding under the fabric--seeming to say, "please don't make me an outfit"! Bella prefers to be naked.
Hope your weekend is going well!
