My daughter has a sewing machine that she got from her aunt a few years back. Lately it hasn’t been working well for her. I happen to go to my local fabric store and they had a sale on sewing machines. I decided to surprised my girls with it all set up and ready to use after school. When I got home from work she requested that I teach her to sew the shorts that I was going to make her today. So today I made a pattern for her, and helped to trace the pattern onto her fabric and sew it together on her new sewing machine. She was so excited she was tell her sister that she wanted to make her something. She also said “Mom why aren’t you an artist?” he-he gotta love looking through kids eyes.
