We worked in my craft room this week. I set up the sewing machine, using a plastic bin under the presser foot on the floor so she could reach it. I did the same set-up with the serger presser foot.
She did not disappoint. Right out of the gate, she had a very relaxed sewing style - not intimidated in the least by the sewing machine...or the serger. In both cases, her speed was moderate and steady.
I think it took me months before I could sew a seam this straight at her age. Like I said, she's a natural!! I will say that the hot iron set her back a little, but it is important to learn to "press as you go".
Next week she will be on her own to finish all the seams in her gored skirt.
Laurel. Yeah Baby!
