Sewing 101

My Elena-bug isn't as "in" to sewing-ish crafts as I'd like...or so I thought. But on Saturday she spied this cool horse fabric at Hancocks and suddenly learning to make a pillow jumped up high on her to-do list!

She chose to make a circle pillow for her first project (ugh!), but we figured it out. She ironed, helped draw the circle (I used the good-ol' "tie a string around a chalk pencil" trick), and then did all the cutting, pinning, sewing, trimming, clipping, turning and stuffing with only minimal help from me! We were all impressed!

Cutting out the fabric.

Whoa! That's too fast...slow and easy girl!

All finished!
