Sewing With Children

My beautiful six-year-old India decided she wanted to make herself a new skirt, and I love to encourage her in all kinds of creative endeavors so we went shopping for fabric. She chose the colour and decided how long she wanted it and then she stitched little patterns all over it with embroidery thread. I helped her use the sewing  machine to sew it all together but she did most of it all on her own.

Teaching children to make their own clothes is a great life skill, it teaches children to be resourceful, creative and independent. I'm looking forward to help her make more clothes and gain more skills as she get older and has more practice.
