Aunt Sarah's having a baby, and naturally, Abby wants to be a part of every little thing that goes along with new baby preparations. (She's done this a time or two.)
"I want to make Aunt Sarah a bag," she informed me. "Moms need bags to carry stuff."
Have I mentioned this is not her first rodeo? She's totally right, so we found a simple pattern online, picked some fabric out from the box of fabric-I-bought-thinking-I'd-have-time-to-complete-a-project-one-day, and set to work.
She cut out her pattern, cut out her fabric, pinned, stitched, and only grumbled a little when her bobbin ran out of thread. I mostly supervised, and only had to step in to help when she needed help sewing some rounded corners.
And the end result was pretty impressive, if I do say so myself. I might see if I can get her to whip up a little Mom-bag for me sometime.
