If you were to make a surprise visit to our home (on a evening or weekend) you’d find our home buzzing with creative activities.
Naturally, I’m one proud mamma! She handled my Brother PC-420 like a pro.
The most recent project my daughter completed was a case for her Wacom Splash tablet. You can see her sewing the fabric (the wrong sides are showing) in the above photos.
She’s been thrilled with how quickly she’s advanced with her sewing. I told her that her first “big project” could be leggings. She wears those a lot.
Before sewing the tablet cover, she completed the above pillow case. Notice a theme? My daughter loves pink.
My daughter didn’t use a pattern for her two sewing projects. I had her measure the pillow and tablet, write the measurements on paper and then I helped her draft a pattern from that. She was thrilled with how simple it was to complete. I did tell her that pattern drafting can get complicated, but once you’re comfortable with doing them, it’s no big deal. It just takes practice and it’s important to not rush… take your time!
She wasn’t the only one working on crafts. You could see me knitting the checkered cowl.
If I work on it today, I should be finished since I only have about six rows to knit.
Whomever is the recipient will have a nice cowl. I used my size 4 Hiya Hiya knitting needles with worsted wool. Because of the small needles used, it’s made the fabric dense. Which will be perfect for keeping out the cold.
