Wearing Green

This week my Abigail asked if I’d teach her to sew, because she’d found this beautiful green fabric in my stash and she needed to make herself a skirt to wear for St. Patrick’s Day. She’s very particular about her clothing, and this was the first time she’d asked to make something for herself, so of course I agreed.


Fabric: The Lovely Hunt, Unicorn Green by Lizzie House

She worked patiently and with persistence, and by the end she was using the machine on her own!

And look what she made.

She’s so proud, and I am so proud of her.

    Grandma would be proud to know sewing skills are still being passed down in the family.
