Sharing my Toys

I have a crafty daughter! We always have fun crafting together, but it’s getting to be even more fun now that’s she’s big enough to be more independent with some of the tools.

Here she is, helping me put together blocks for a ‘throw together’ patchwork duvet cover. This is a true recycling project, using old flannel sheets and fabric scraps!





We’ll have more photos later of this project.

Honor also found a kids’ sewing project for a sock doll and is working on that too.

Important lesson #1 – thread the needle!


Working hard on her doll


So far…


We’ll have photos of this too, as she goes along :)

Looks like you will be having a lot of creative fun together! Can't wait to see the final product!

BTW, love the updated blog design!

We do have a lot of fun together and I am so glad I have a crafty kid! My dad was crafty too and it is so fun to share :)

The blog was fun (and past due) to update. I used a photo from Petra as a backdrop and I'm very happy how it turned out... it is decorative & pretty, but the text is still readable! I enjoyed playing with Paint Shop to make the header photo too. Thanks!

How fun! I am looking forward to my kiddos becoming a little more independent in the crafty department. This are great projects your daughter has going on! Enjoy! (PS love the new blog design, too!)

Hi Heather - I think 8yo is when I was turned loose with my mom's machine too. Honor still needs directions, but this is a great age because she's big enough to handle things, as well as mature enough to listen and retain complex, multi-part instructions. When she gets up waaaaay too early on a weekend, I can say yes to her request to use the sewing machine on her own!
