Sewing

Caitlin has been doing her toymaker badge with Brownies. So far she has made a puppet at school and she has been sewing a kit of a doll at home.  She needed to do one more task to complete it, so she picked making some clothes for your doll or teddy.  I helped her to work out how much fabric she needed and then she cut it out…

…she then ironed it and pinned it ready for sewing.  I started her off with the hem and side seam and then left her to it…

My machine is great because you can alter the speed and set it to sew quite slowly which means it is much easier to control.  She sewed the whole skirt on her own and it was brilliant.  Hew sewing was so neat….

She even did the elastic around the top, I helped her to pin it but she did all of the sewing.  And ta da!!!!!!!!  One skirt fit for Rosie the bear!!!
