Today Moo asked if she could use my sewing machine. She hasn't really asked before because I had put the fear of god in her about touching my machine. But she asked today, and even though I really wanted to do my own stuff, I thought it was time. I drew some lines on some fabric, so she could practice sewing a straight line and get a feel for the machine. Before I knew it, she was having a grand time experimenting with decoratives stitches.
While I was cooking dinner, she rustled up a few more scraps (from the dress she is wearing which I will blog about soon). She made a bag. Then found a strip of fabric and came to ask me how to attach it to the bag. She went off and did that herself. When she was done she came to show me her work and told me it was a bag to hold money. I suggested that perhaps it wasn't the best for money. At that moment she said, "how about a recorder?"
At dinner I said to her that the bag could have been constructed so that you can't see the bits of fabric on the outside. She then said, "oh yes, I'd sew it inside out." She has also said that she wants a sewing machine. So listen up Grandma, I know you read this blog, so start saving. Your granddaughter wants a sewing machine. I don't think the youngest princess will settle for anything less than a Bernina.
