How do you teach a boy how to sew???
My 6 (almost 7) year old is dying to learn how to quilt. The only problem is that he gets bored even doing a pillowcase. I am at a loss as to what to do about it. I am so excited that he is excited and I want to spend time with him while he cares about it befoe he goes all Cat's-in-the-Cradle on me, but it just ends in frustration. ANY SUGGESTIONS??? We have been working on this scrap wreath but now he and I are both claiming ownership...
He asked me to take a picture of his lego restaurant for the lego website and also my blog. When he was 5 he told everyone his mom was a world famous quilter...I did not even have a blog. This year he got a little older/wiser and realized I was not world famous. I told him about the magazine thingie and he said "are they even gonna sell that in LAS VEGAS?" I told him I guessed so and he said "wow mom...you really ARE a world famous quilter!" Let's go "awwww" together, ok? Anyway, he wanted me to post pictures of his lego creations because I guess he thinks he can become a world famous Brickmaster.
So what can you do to include the kids in your sewing???
