365/34 Sewing Lesson

My daughter taught one of our little friends to sew this afternoon.  She worked very studiously at her blanket stitching, stuffed the fluff as directed, then she "saw" that she really was making a pillow! 

For me, it is always sweet to see a little one learn a new skill, but ten times sweeter to watch my girl taking on the role of mentor, patiently showing and explaining and setting aside her own little project to teach a friend.

Love it! You must have done a wonderful job teaching her patience and understanding. Nothing is quite so much fun as watching someone else learn something you have taught them.

It's great they're learning to sew. My grandmother always wanted me to want to learn and now I wish I would have been.

I agree with you, it shows your girl is maturing into a beautiful young girl.
