What is this you ask? This is Than’s first creation that he, personally, sewed.
Yesterday in an attempt to give him “something to do”, I decided to teach him to sew. I created a monster. He now wants to sew all.the.time. Yesterday he made three things (I’ll post pics of the other two in a minute) and told me that “I could sit here and sew all night!” He’s decided that he just wants to sew, sew, sew. He loves it. LOVES it. I’m so glad he loves it.
is the puffer fish he created. I do the cutting out of the shapes, he sews together. However on this one, I did sew the black spikes on because it would have been a nightmare (for me) to have him do it. See, I’m in charge of cutting out the shapes (for now) and threading the needles.
Here’s his last project from last night:
Anyway…life’s been crazy since moving into the new place. G, Than and I love it and are happily ignoring the boxes still sitting in the dining room. You know the dining room that’s supposed to serve three purposes: Eating place, School room and Craft room. Eventually we’ll get those boxes taken care of. Mostly they are full of G’s music cd’s, Than’s school stuff and my craft stuff. We just need to get organized.
I’m busy sewing Tooth Fairy Pillows for a book fair coming up (bought a table and everything!) so I can sell them. Then I’ll put the remainder up on my Etsy shop. My goal is to make 50. So far I’ve made 12. I have 6 weeks to make the rest. Ummmmm…
