Sewing in minature

Step 1 - measure the big-eyed cute toy of the moment

My daughter was given a gorgeous sewing machine for her birthday and today we took it for a spin. It's surprising how many steps there are to sewing something as simple as a drawstring bag or even using a sewing machine. All the things you do instinctively suddenly seem very complicated through the eyes of a 6 year old. So we did it in steps.

2. Choose fabric
3. Sew
4. Admire

All done, straight to step 4.
