Projects Are Contagious

Beware the project bug. It is highly infectious, and if you aren't careful, it will not only bite you, but it will also bite your children.

Maryn wanted to make a blanket. She picked out her own fabric. Then, she decided she wanted to HAND SEW it! This mama was thrilled!

She worked on it for THREE HOURS STRAIGHT. She almost finished it, but we had to wait until the next day.

Her stitches were so cute. I wish they were on the outside so I could still see them.

We top stitched it as a team.

And voila!!! Her first sewing project!!!! COMPLETE.

Sam also got bitten. His aspiration was a pillow. He pinned it up after he chose the fabric.

Don't worry; he was supervised. :)

Time to stuff it!

Ready for a nap? Sam's first project--FINISHED. WOW.

Kids are capable of a lot more than many of us tend to think. Give your kid some freedom to create; you may be surprised at how awesome they are!!! I sure was!
