I would like to be able to one day say "I made this!" Can anyone tell me what the easiest starter project is?

Thanks!

I guess a crafty type for now. I don't have a sewing machine and can just barely patch up a ripped seam...

Tie-dying in pretty easy especially with one of those neat kits you can get at the fabric or craft store for 10.00 or so

Plus it gives you a chance to be creative!

I suggest knitting.

Kids Knitting by Melanie Falick is a great book for learning how to knit with some really nice projects, and it will be great when your kids are ready for it too.

The thrill of creating an actual piece of apparel is really something.

My first project for my girls was a waldorf doll from a kit. You don't need a sewing machine or much experience. In fact, some of the kits from Joy's Waldorf Dolls can be bought will presewn bodies and crocheted mohair wigs, or you can do it all yourself. I started with the bright eyes kit. It was simple and very cute. I have since made them for friends, and everyone seems to love them.
