Little Miss has been bugging me for ages to teach her to sew and if you are a regular reader you would know she has tackled a few small projects before but now, just like her Mama, she wants to make doll clothes!
|Teaching how to flatten a fuzzy end when threading needle.|
Here I am teaching her how to thread the needle herself. I cut the wool blend felt from the pattern for her she pinned most of by herself. I opted to cut the thicker felt as didn't want her handling my fabric scissors and meeting defeat at the first step. I tried my best to explain some basics of construction and stitching to her.
She took it all on and had sewed this garment astoundingly well! She wanted to add embellishment which she selected and sewed on herself. The only thing I continuously did was tie the knots in her thread and assist with placement and fitting. She made a beautiful dress and I am amazed at the quality of it for her very first try!
If you would like to see her completed dress pop over to her blog for a peek!
