Sewing Adventure with Sugar

Sugar has always been my crafty one.  She has been asking to learn to sew for a long time now. We encouraged her to pull out the old sewing machine that was stuffed in the closet.   She shared this with her Nanny, who pushed it to the next level.  She got Sugar set up in some classes.  So here we go. 
In the end that orginal sewing machine was beyond repair.  Sugar got a new one and now is ready to learn as much as she can.  Class #1 she made some pillow cases.  Class #2 a skirt was made for Princess and brought material home to make one for Bagel as well.
 I can't sew at all and I am so proud of Sugar and her pursuit of her interest. 
The kids are all putting in their requests of what she will make next and who she will make it for. 


  1. The skirt is adorable- what a great job Sugar did on it. The expression on the girls faces in that last picture is even more precious though. Love it! :)

  2. Yay!!! I love a good seamstress in the family! :) I think she is doing an awesome job on her new hobby and she must have a great instructor. BTW...are you sure the old machine is beyond repair? The first shop I visited told me machine was not worth repairing and wanted to sell me a brand new machine...I took it to a 2nd shop and it was repaired while I waited. Hmmm....

    If you didn't turn it in on trade you might consider keeping it for another kiddo to take up the hobby. Otherwise, disregard!

    I can't wait to see her future projects...there are lots of really fun baby layette projects out there!


I love hearing your thoughts. Thank you for stopping by.
