My DGD Miranda came over for the day to sew. She's 13. She did aittle  
sewing a few years ago and made a Red Riding hood Cape for Halloween.  
Today she wanted to make some rice bags and a pot holder. I started her  
from scratch.
New needle in the machine thread up and wind bobbin,
press your material to be sure it's wrinkle fee,lay it out on the  
cutting board,  square it up, measure up and mark pieces you need. Next  
came cutting ,pinning sewing and pressing seams on wrong side then right  
side. finish up and trim. I've listed each step, because that's the way  
I had her work. I explained each step as she went along and then had her  
do them. I stood a distance away so that she could work on her own.
I hope this young lady decided to go further with her sewing. She's a  
natural. Careful attentive and very neat, She cut so well with a  
scissors, looks like she used a rotary cutter. She wanted to know if she  
needed to pin, I told her not if she  didn't want to. Just explained how  
to hold and guide her fabric.
We had a ball.
She knows she can come over anytime she wants to sew, Grammie is happy o  
have her. I'll post some pictures tomorrow.

So happy for you both!  A couple summers ago my DGD, Tinsie wanted to learn  
to sew.  I only see her in the summer because I am in FL during the winter.
When I saw her again she had changed her mind.  Now she is 14 so maybe in a  
few weeks or maybe next summer???  Maybe this winter she will start drawing  
clothes she might want to make.  And yes, I have an older Singer she can  
have.
Good luck with your sewing!
