My daughter came with me when I went to Spotlight the other day to get some inexpensive cotton (Anchor Magicline $9.95 for 10 balls). She was asking to make something for her friend who is having a party on Friday. Of course drawing and making cards is a given but she wanted to do something more. We decided to give hand sewing a felt doll a go. It is her project but I was there to help her.
The sewing missed a few holes but for her first handsewn item she did fine.
I think she did a fantastic job with the embroidery like she is a natural. That talent she did not get from me.
Even my eldest son wanted to try sewing.
