Big B had his first sewing lesson today--and he loved it! My cheeks hurt as I watched him carefully place the needle and pull it gently through the other side (gentleness is highly praised in our rough-and-tumble house).
I saw these heart pockets and they inspired me to buy felt and rick rack, though I wasn't sure how we would create them yet. Today the mood struck, and we cut the felt into pocket-y shapes. I had thought I'd sew the pockets on the hearts and let Big B glue rick-rack, buttons, etc. onto them. But in a flash of "he might actually like this--AND benefit from it!", I asked him if he'd like to try the sewing. He got so excited!
He was patient, careful, prideful and sweet, attentive and focused.
For ten whole minutes.
