Scraps of mommy's fabric ~ free
needle & thread ~ free
borrowed scissors ~ free
a 5 year old's imagination! ~ Priceless!!!!
I just have to share this story! This afternoon I was in my studio working on....yes, of course more patterns. My little sidekick was at my side as always chatting my ear off and "making her own pattern" as she told me. I was busy concentrating on what I was doing and not really paying attention to what she was doing. She threaded her own needle, and cut out her pattern and sewed up her very first design.....I almost fell off my chair when she finished and held it up for me to see her beautiful work! "Look mommy it's underwear for Diddlina"!!!! How proud I was when I saw that my daughters first pattern design was for a thong!
Just in case you are wondering. Diddlina is Abby's beloved mouse friend that her daddy brought her back from Germany. The two of them are inseparable!!!
