following in my foot steps!
I jumped at the opportunity and suggested we start right away! we decided on a peg bag (as I needed one!)
As we started I was explaining the different pattern pieces she would need, she really didn't seem to get it and I worried it would be another disastrous teaching experience for me and Jesse, but I backed off and asked her to re explain to me what she had to do and she had got it all! I let her use the iron for the first time to press seams , she was very careful and controlled, and with the sewing machine....she was excellent! great foot control and turned the fabric perfectly round the corner! I was oozzzzing with pride. within 10 minutes she had a perfect finished peg bag! and she was saying what can i make next!!! (tear of pride in eye!)
only problem now is I think we may be fighting for the machine!
