TUESDAY TOOTS

Oh the sweetness of your oldest granddaughter wanting to learn how to sew! 


My oldest granddaughter is 8 years old. Loves to do crafts, create and design. Needless to say we gave her her own little sewing machine with all the trimmings for her 8th birthday which was in April. Her mom, my oldest daughter has said that she wants to sew everything!!!

She wanted to make a bib...she cut it out by herself and began!


You know the problem we have as parents and grandparents is wanting to do it for them. However, I decided that she would do this...mistakes and all! How else will we learn?




Of course she seemed to have WAYYYYY more patience than I ever thought about having~




Her finished product wasn't half bad for an 8 year old. 




She was so proud of herself and so was I!




Then she got real brave and decided that she wanted to embellish a tee shirt.




Have I mentioned patience?





 I am so proud of her I could just SPIT!



Thank you for tooten with me today on my granddaughter Raygen's accomplishments! 



Hugs and blessings, Cindy

  1. She did a fantastic job on those projects! And at only eight years old, that is just wonderful. I am certain having you for a NaNa has been a huge inspiration and influence on her because you are so creative. Hopefully she will never lose her interest. Who knows.... Maybe you have a budding clothing designer or interior decorator there!

  7. SPIT AWAY, GRANDMA, BECAUSE YOUR GRANDDAUGHTER IS AWESOME! She has done an AMAZING job on the bib and t-shirt! My granddaughters (7 & 9) want to learn to sew also. I think I should get them their own sewing machine. Its so wonderful that your granddaughter has just taking it up so easy. And as I tell my grandgirls "patience is a virtue!" And every now and then they remind me of that...
    Wonderful blessings to you!
