Sewing Lessons

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!

That is the cutest post, your beautiful daughters will no doubt have inherited your creativity gene,judging by those gorgeous outfits they made. I have to keep going back for another look at those furry babes, they are just the prettiest ones I have ever seen. I could just get you to put them in the post to Australia.

This is great! My mom taught me to sew and it is the best life time gift. I have made a living off of sewing at times in my life...look how good the girls are already!

Ur so lucky, i didnt have any daughters to pass any of my pink pretties on to.........Ur daughters are beautiful and appear to being enjoying their sewing lessons...And what a model, Lacie is a cutie!..U asked about the china cabinet...I actually bought the table, 5 chairs, china cabinet and buffet, all for $500. An awesome CL find, however its taken almost a yr to figure out what i wanted to do with each piece and then actually get it done, lol.....I still have to paint the buffet...go figure...........Im so glad u stopped by.....Bonnie
