Pretty much everyone around me these days knows how to sew.
Everyone except me, that is.
Well, until recently. 🙂
When my mom visited back in October to help us with the kids, she taught me how to hand sew. We made these cute little monsters for our middle son’s birthday party in just a couple days time. I realized then that I actually really liked to do this. Then, mom left, I got busy, and forgot about this newfound DIY hobby of mine.
In the last couple weeks, I have started sewing again….my kids being the inspiration.
I wanted to make each of them something special….they wanted me to make each of them something special…so off I went on some new creating adventures.
Our daughter loves all things pink. 🙂 I made her this little pillow with felt, flannel, embroidery thread, and stuffing.
My next project was for our middle son, and was much more advanced than the pillow project. All I had was a generic picture that gave me an idea to go by, and no pattern or anything. I have no idea if I did it like other people would, or like I even should. Nevertheless, it came out great and our son loves it!
I used different colored felt and embroidery thread, along with a space patterned cotton fabric that a friend gave me. Meet “Space Spot J”. 🙂
And finally, our oldest requested that I make him a Pikachu. Okay, why not?
I knew it was a success when I looked over and he had it in his hands, staring at it, saying “Pika” over and over. So cute!
I am loving creating beauty both FOR my children, and WITH my children! Here is our oldest son’s first sewing project (I have been teaching him to sew)…
He pretty much did everything himself, including picking the colors and the fabric…great job buddy! 🙂 ❤
