Today, Kaylee and I worked on her special project, a Dora pillow. She was very excited to be doing some sewing and to be using mommy's sewing machine. I think this little girl was in heaven!! One day, when I have a sewing room, I think it better be rather large as I have a feeling there will be a few sewing machines in that room :)
So, this is both sides of the pillow and they are squared up and ready to be pinned together.
Here is Kaylee pinning the 2 sides of the pillow together. She did really well at this and did not poke her fingers at all! She is a quick learner and did most with very little help.
Kaylee sewing the pillow together. She was sitting on my knee, and I controlled the foot pedal. She guided most of the pillow with just a bit of help! I think she is a natural!! :)
Here she is ironing the pillow! I was standing right beside her and we also had a very good talk about the iron being really hot! She did very well at this and kept her hands where they were safe! I am so proud of her!!
Hand stitching the opening closed. I would put the needle in and pull it out a bit and Kaylee would do the rest!
Since the pillow was finished she has proudly shown the family what she made, and has not let it of her sight or arms for that matter! Tonight in bed, she is sleeping with her Dora pillow!
I am so proud of Kaylee and happy that she loves her very first project!!
