Learning to Sew at a Young Age

I don't remember exactly how old I was when my mom first tried to teach me how to sew.  I am guessing between 8-9.  My mom was homeschooling and thought it would be great to do 4-h sewing.  So we went to town and picked out some 4th of July fabric and a short pattern. 

4-H Sewing Experience


I think my mom had to of been a saint because I remember vividly NOT wanting to sew the shorts.  I would sew a section and then it wouldn't line up right and when I came back later to finish the project they magically lined up!  It must've been too much for my mom to handle.  I am sure I wasn't an easy student.

The Easiest Bag on the Planet to Sew

I am not joking when I say that this is the easiest bag to sew on the planet!  I have had this bag pattern in mind for a few months, but just haven't had an excuse to sew it up.

I work with the 8-9 year old girls in my community every other week doing crafts, learning about religion, cooking, and other general things that might be helpful for a young girl to know.  This week we decided it was time to do a craft.

As usual, I put off figuring out the exact dimensions of this bag that I had in mind until 10 minutes before the girls came knocking.  Last minute....I know.  Not a very good example to a young girl?  Probably, but they didn't know that I had waited.  But I will be better.

Dinosaur Rag Quilt Car Seat Canopy Pattern~ Cute Appliqued Quilt for a Baby Shower Gift Idea

This fun rag quilt was one of the first that I ever designed. It's an oldie, but a goodie! Ya know what I mean?!

Its a quilt pattern for a rag quilt that also doubles as a car seat canopy.  It is a fun and quick sew.  I don't know about you, but there are so many times that I put off making a present for that sweet baby that is on its way.  I have 9 months to get it done right?  Then I end up getting the invitation for the baby shower.  It's a couple weeks away, right?  Plenty of time!
