A First Quilt

For Christmas Daisy got her very own little sewing machine (I would say that this one has a number of frustrating points and as soon as we're sure that she won't let her fingers get pulled under the needle I think she'll have to upgrade to something she can use more independently...where the thread doesn't break or come unthreaded constantly and that actually has a backstitch).  We've sewn a few things together (pajama pants, a small tote), but I was especially proud when she wanted to make an itty bitty quilt for one of Scout's favorite stuffed animals: baby sea turtle.

She designed it herself using fabric from her tiny stash, cut the pieces, and did all the sewing (though I helped with pinning and direction.  It's already much loved.

They grow up so fast!
