Sewing with Anne

This weekend Anne and I took advantage of the extra time and did some sewing together. My aunt set her an adorable minky pillowcase kit and we had fun putting it together.

Before I would let Anne use my rotary cutter I ordered her a safety glove. As a middle school teacher who teaches sewing and quilting, I always make sure my students, and myself, wear protective gear.

I bought this handy dandy safety glove on Amazon. The only downside is that it doesn’t have the rubberized grips on them like a Klutz glove would have. You can find it on Amazon if you search for Evridwear Kid Sized Glove.

We had a fun time working together. Here are a couple pictures of her cutting and sewing.

I’m so proud of how hard she worked. She did an amazing job. Next weekend she wants to finish the quilt she started when she was 4. I am excited to finish that one and start a new project with her. With her being 10 and more willing to listen now, we are going to be able to have sew much fun creating together.

    She did a great job on her pillow case!!! Could you put ribbons of hot glue on the protective glove to give her some grip?

    Wow, has she grown! She was little when I started following you. Sounds like life is treating you well, I sure hope so!

    The pillowcase looks great! It will be so much fun to see the quilt finished, too. The safety glove is probably a great idea. Rosa likes to go fast with everything, and getting her to slow down would be good. Maybe the glove would help with that, too! =) Thanks for sharing this new project of Anne’s.

    Ah, she’s growing up quickly! So fun to share in the joy of creating with her mom. She’ll have a life-long skill to enjoy.
