In the last week or so I have been thinking about that gift and realising that this is something I want my girls to have. Maybe not the sewing kit just yet, but I want to pass down the legacy of creativity my Nana and Mum gave to me. All I have to do now is figure out what form that will take.We all need to start somewhere so this week I started to teach Miss K some basic stitches. I am hoping that just by sitting next to us, watching and 'helping' Mini Piwi will absorb some of the creativity like I did sitting next to my Mum cross stitch or hearing my Nana's sewing machine whirring in the sewing room.
Going with this week's Sheep theme ,we made a Lambie sock puppet. Thanks to Daddy for the old sock donation.
Mini Piwi was in charge of the eyes and modelling the puppets while we worked out where Miss K was going to sew on the parts.
Miss K stitched the ears with a running stitch and I showed her how to do a satin stitch to outline the noses. Overall the lesson was a success, the Piwi's made a couple of very cute sock puppets! Apparently tomorrow we are moving onto Valentines day fashions for teddy bears....
