Well, not she’s not exactly sewing yet, but she’s expressed an interest in it!
Today, she had a wart removed – a huge one, right on the Achilles heel. The doctor numbed the foot, froze the wart, and then took this loop like instrument and dug it out. This wart blob came flying off and now she’s left with a nasty looking hole. To take her mind off of her throbbing heel, I took her to see RV. Anyway, right before the previews, we’re talking about summer “fun stuff” and she leans over and asks “Will you teach me how to sew?” Now how can I refuse that? I’m not sure if this is a passing interest, she’s truely interested, or if it was the pain talking, but I told her we would start with pajamas. She thought that was a great idea – as she put it, “if they turn out horrible, no one but me has to see it!”
I’ve been saving my first sewing machine, a White basic model for Taylor to use if she ever got interested. No bells and whistles, but a good starter machine ( I still have to pull it out from time to time to make extra large button holes). When we got to Hancock Fabrics for their sale tomorrow, I’ll let her find a pattern she likes and some fabric too. Of course, I’ll be posting her progress as we go!
