Daughter Sews Pillows

We’re in the process of redecorating our oldest daughter’s bedroom: new paint, new flooring, new bedding, new curtains, etc. So, of course, she’s helping, too!! (She’s 10 years old, now.)
I invited her to write a post/tutorial for this blog, describing what she made, today. Here’s her email to me describing her process of sewing new decorative pillows for her bed:

“First, I have to thread the needle. Then, I have to get the fabric and put the pattern sides together. I put the fabric under the needle and put the foot down. I sew until there is just a hole big enough for my hand. I flip inside out. After that, I stuff it. I sew the hole up, and I’m done.”

Concise and to the point, I say! Well done! Truth of the matter, threading her sewing machine is actually trickier than threading MY machine. (She has her OWN real sewing machine.) The sewing machine was on her wishlist to Santa a couple of years ago. 😉 She’s getting pretty good at sewing on it!


Again, “GREAT JOB, SWEETHEART!!” I’m so proud of her! Love.
