It's a Janome 11706 3/4 Size Hello Kitty Sewing Machine, and with her mama's help, she's already working on her first project - a sleeping bag for her dolly. From what I hear, sweet girl loves the stitching much more than the prep work, not unexpected for a 5-year-old attention span. But it's a start.
After we celebrated grandgirl's birthday over the weekend, I couldn't resist sewing up a pincushion for her, and chose Fabric Mutt's Deluxe Pincushion from her book, Sew Organized for the Busy Girl. It was quick to sew up, and of course I made it about as pink as I could.
As if the quilted 9-patch pocket on the front wasn't fun enough, so was the bit of accent ribbon on the side. I did have some tape measure ribbon like Heidi shows in her book, but I thought grandgirl might enjoy the sweet little deer.
I filled the pincushion with crushed walnut shells. and apparently overfilled a tad, as I had a rough time sewing that last 1/8" around. So perfect it's not, but I still think grandgirl will put it to good use.
Linking up with Finish It Up Friday.
