Abigail has been bugging me to get her a sewing machine. (Really that's just one of the things she's been bugging me about.)
Anyway, I told her that first she should learn to sew by hand because there are some things that can't be done on a sewing machine. And, if she learns the mechanics of how things work and/or go together it will only help when she is creating things on the sewing machine.
She has a bag of clothes in her room that she doesn't wear anymore so I told her to use those things to work with on creating something new.
Here's what she came up with.
The red was a shirt that she cut up and turned into a jacket. She took the bottom of the red shirt and used it to make the flowers and used the buttons from the red shirt for the center of the flowers.
She did a great job, didn't she?
