Sew, sew, sewing

I hand-stitched some owls for a baby shower recently, and the kids were really interested in what I was doing. Then they began asking me if they could help.

It sounded really intimidating to “teach” them to sew, so I freaked out a little inside. But then I realized how much of my own sewing has been trial-and-error.

So, I threaded some needles, gave them some felt hearts, and let them go to work!

I did show them how to do a blanket stitch, but they did most of the work on their own.

It was fun to watch them begin to learn a new skill that will come in handy in their lives. Sewing is very practical (not to mention a fun, creative outlet).
