Sewing With Leah

Today Julie and I babysitted Leah and Sam. After painting "porky balls" (those little spiky things you find on the ground) and making very cute ornaments with them, I asked Leah if she wanted to sew something. Asking a five year old to sew with you is...brave. But she did very good. We sewed snakes. Very, very cute snakes. Leah sewed a realistic one, and I sewed one with flowers. They had button eyes. Leah is AMAZING. I found out that she can sew on the machine BY HERSELF!! I had to sew around the head, but she did sewed the straight seams all by herself. After ironing them and stuffing them, (Leah needed some help stuffing the tail) I gave Leah a threaded needle. I sewed half of the hole up, and she sewed the other half, all by herself. She did amazing, using very small, close-together stitches. I would post pictures but...I really don't like posting pictures. It takes too long. As I'm sure I've said before, I rather be crocheting! Lol! Maybe Mama or Julie will post some pictures...

That is so cute! I can't believe a 5 yr. old can already sew better than I will ever sew...if I knew how! Tell Leah I said she is AWESOME (even though I'm jealous of her)!

Olivia,
I saw your comment on my blog! Your vote's acceptable! Thanks! I love reading your blog, too! I'll be ten on April 18, 2010. I was born in 2000 so when I turned one it was 2001, and when I turned two it was 2002, and when I turned three it was 2003 ,and so on. That's an easy way to keep up with my age!
