The Seamstress

 Alice kept telling me she wanted her own little sewing machine for Christmas, so when I saw this one, I knew I had to get it.  I also got her a basket with her own fabric, scissors, measuring tape, and pins.  She was so excited!

 She was so excited that she couldn't actually wait to use the sewing machine!  I heard a cutting noise the other day and turned around to see her "making a blanket" with some of her material.

 Yesterday we set up the machine and planned to make a little sleeping bag for her baby doll.  Unfortunately, you don't get a lot of sewing power for $20 and the fabric was too thick for the machine.

 We made a small pillow instead.

 Alice did part of it by hand.

 The finished product!

 This morning she was back at work!

 Making another blanket.

She even made some napkins for us!

I'm going to have to round up some hand sewing projects for her to work on until my machine is fixed.  She is full of ideas!
