I have mentioned this before, but I have a six-and a half year old who is getting into sewing—which completely warms my heart. She and I sewed up this little t-shirt skirt from 2 dollar store tees a week or so ago. She did the casing, threaded the elastic through it, sewed it together and closed the casing–all.by.herself.
And I got the lovely assistant job of trying to make her vision come to life with the small rows of ruffles on the “h” (which was quite the task).
Even the styling is all her….which also makes me laugh because the shirt under the sweater also happens to be the shirt that we cut the ruffles from and is so super-cropped that it is barely covered by the sweater.
But, she loves it. Is so proud of herself. And rightfully sew! I am too.
P.S. Any other beginning sewing projects to recommend doing with a 6 year old?
