She can sew!

Lily has been dying to sew on the machine for such a long time and I finally realized that putting the pedal on the ottoman under the desk means she can do it all (mostly) herself! She started practicing without thread just punching lines on paper, and then she made two pillows–one felt, one jersey knit. I only had to help with going in reverse to lock the stitches…she operated the presser foot, wheel, and pedal all by herself. The lines weren’t always the straightest but she trimmed the edges of the fabric where needed afterward 🙂 We went to the fabric store this afternoon and she made two more fleece pillows–one My Little Pony for herself and one with flowers for her grandma.
