It suddenly occurred to my kids recently that I can sew...
and that they've been missing out on an opportunity!
One night as they were getting ready for bed they hatched up the idea that they should have matching pj's and that we should make them. They had a very distinct vision of what they would look like and of course the project should have started minutes ago.
So the next morning off to JoAnn Fabrics we went, coming home with a pattern, fabric and notions, promptly getting to work. I got more help than I thought I would, along with lots of strong opinions and supervision.
They love them. How fun to pass on the interest and ability to make things!
They've already got a list of more items they would like to make.
So much for having any time for home decor!!
