Teaching the girls to sew, originally uploaded by SewLaTea.

On April school vacation, my sister in law Miech and I planned on getting the kids together at which time the “girls” would sew 🙂  Madison & Emma were so excited to make something of their own.  It really is the best isn’t it?  They picked out some fabrics from their mom’s collection and after some discussion, decided that they wanted to make pillows for their beds.  We used Denyse Schmidt Quilts book to make the pillow case.  We followed the directions for the Hits The Spot Pillow.  Such a GREAT pillow case.  We lined ours so that it would be nice and easy peasy to take off and wash.   The girls were SO proud.  And they should be!  They picked out the fabrics all by themselves and helped sew up their very own pillow!  It was a fun day, and I hope there will be many more sewing days to come 🙂

Miech’s Tote, originally uploaded by SewLaTea.
