Sewing for Children

What do you get when your five year old buys her very own Sewing for Children book with some Christmas money? When she gathers up a pair of mama’s old flannel pajama pants that shrunk too short (and they also happen to have a lovely pink velvet ribbon as a tie), and a pink glove (the other has been missing for a long time), some thrifted crochet trim and a pair of mama’s old stripey knee socks that had a seriously large hole in the heel? You get a beautiful bunny made out of thrifted and recycled materials, and one very happy little girl who made her very first doll. She is doing much better now, all the welts and swelling have gone and she is off of the meds. Thanks for your well wishes and concern, she’s her happy little itch free self again.

    Fabulous rabbit – reminds me a little of Pippi Longstocking with those stripey legs. Glad to hear your little seamstress is feeling much better.
