Sewing for grandchildren
On the sewing bras post, Hallngarden mentioned her little grandkids. Do you sew for them? I sew for mine all the time, gives me great pleasure. The irony is that not a one of my 6 gkids needs any more clothes, but I can't help myself. I sew for them anyway.
My oldest is 6 1/2 now. She's been drawing pictures of dresses she wants me to make. Sometimes finding the fabric she has drawn is next to impossible, but I can usually come close. She is thrilled, tells her friends, "I designed this dress myself."
I still enjoy sewing complicated garments for my grown kids, but sewing for little kids is quicker and easier. I just love doing it.
