As her older brother and sister have done before her, a couple of days ago, Michaela tried her hand at stitching. I have talked about teaching the kids how to stitch before – I think back-stitch is the easiest to lean if the shapes are simple.
I have drawn out the same design that the others started with, which borrows the elements from this quilt. The blue one above is Amelia’s, stitched when she was 5 1/2 years old. The Red one below is Rory’s, started at the same time when he was 3 1/2 years, but finished when he was almost 5 years old.
They hang together like so….
Eventually Michaela’s will hang with the others, proudly on our wall.
Have you done any sewing with your kids? What did you teach them?
