One Saturday morning, the girls woke up ready to sew. So, much to my delight, out came the sewing machine, needles, thread, fabric...

Both Charlotte and Lily decided that little pillows would be a good project. They rolled up strips of felt to create fabric roses, and stitched them to fabric.

Lily preferred to use the machine, while Charlotte stitched by hand. Lily has become quite comfortable maneuvering the machine. She confidently presses the peddle with her foot, while feeding the fabric through the machine.

Charlotte really surprised us with her sewing skills. She used a real, albeit, sharp needle and thread. Without knotting the thread, she sewed along the edges of the stem in straight lines, and then proceeded to whip stitch the whole pillow together.

Lovely, aren't they?
