More Sewing with Grammy!


Grammy had so much fun sewing with the girls last time that she actually came back for more (brave woman that she is)!  The girls had an early release day last week and Grammy picked them up from school with project supplies in hand.  She picked a project from the book Let's make Cute Stuff by Aranzi Aronzo! Fun Dolls.  If you are looking for a beginning project for a young sewer this is a great one.  She chose the snake pattern and a simple canvas fabric on which they used stamps and fabric markers for decorations.


This project is a simple shape that little hands can easily trace pattern pieces for, cut out, and they love personalizing the fabric to make it their own.  Sewing in the mouth and tongue was a little tricky, Grammy had to help there, but almost all of the machine sewing, stuffing and hand sewing was done by the girls.  It is really cute how much they LOVE their handmade snakes!
