My littlest guy, (6) has taken an interest in sewing today. I needed to sew a button on my coat, he wanted to help. Then after that was done, he said he wanted to learn more. So I got a scrap of fabric, a larger needle and thread and he is making a little pillow for one of his stuffed animals. Just basic stitches, and he next to me here, saying how much fun it is, telling me I am a good sewing teacher. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"><br><br>
