A Budding Seamstress

Yesterday afternoon, I was in my sewing room cutting fabric when Taylor came in and said she felt like making something. I let her browse my books and we came up with a project – the clutch from Amy Karol’s Bend-the-Rules Sewing. I let her pick any fabric she wanted and I think she enjoyed sifting through my stash and remnants. She settled on a brown and green swirl and a coordinating ‘paint by number’ style bird print. A little while later, Taylor had this:

I’m so proud of her! Taylor did all the sewing herself with just a little direction from me and she turned out a great clutch. She was very pleased with the outcome and that it sewed up so quickly. Now if I could find more projects like this for her to work on, I may have another sewer in the house!

    Hey Taylor – AWESOME JOB!!! First of all – excellent choice of fabrics. That clutch is darling. You should be so proud. And, you have the best teacher of all – your mom is so talented it will be great to learn from her!
    Question for Stacy – do you have thoughts on child sewing machines?

    Wow Taylor you made a beautiful bag. That fabric is really great. I think you have inherited your mom’s wonderful sewing talent.
