I wanted to make a Back to School Skirt with Anna, but I really didn't know if we would get to it. One morning she came down to pick out fabric and found a piece of an apron I had goofed up and asked if we could make a skirt out of it. It was brilliant-because three sides were already finished, so all we had to do was sew it together and put in a casing for elastic.
I let her run the machine all by myself-which was very hard. I tried not to be hover-y, and she did a fantastic job. She went nice and slow and did a wonderful job sewing in a straight line. I could not figure out how to explain moving the elastic through the casing-she kept doing it backwards. We'll have to work on that some more.
Here she is, proud in her new skirt.
She's very excited to wear it to school. Today!!
