So I was playing around the other day. I wanted to sew myself an apron. Always wanting to 'help', my girl was by my side...
what can I do Mom? can I do the pins?
If she isn't busy, I know... I will get nothing done.
I will usually sit her up with a scrap of material and a box of pins. She goes to town and it buys me about 15 minutes.
Well today she said I want to make a blind. Ambitious, I think. So I sit her up with material, a paper eyemask pattern, a pencil and her favorite scissors in the world.
She was so proud of herself and I was impressed! I just watched her in awe as she worked so busily and I snapped pictures.
Eventually, I got nothing done but she finished her blind.
I sewed it for her, with a WIDE seam allowance to account a few irregular cuts.
