Isabella has wanted to take sewing lessons for as long as I can remember. She asked for the lessons on her 5th, 6th and 7th birthday – but the minimum age is 8. Since she was turning 8 this year, she knew she was old enough – at last – to start her sewing career.
Her grandmother made sure she signed her up for the sewing class as close to her 8th birthday as she could. And she gave her a sewing basket to put all her supplies and some cool zebra fabric to be used to make the pillow case at her first class.
Isabella was soooo excited. She loves to sketch little outfits and really wants to learn to sew so that she can make her designs come to life. She sprang out of bed Saturday morning – ready for her first lesson. Gabby was so cute, she said to Isabella “You have been waiting for this your ENTIRE life!” I almost cried.
Grandma took her to Joanne’s but wasn’t allowed to stay in the classroom. I guess little kids probably get distracted with parents/grandparents around. Three hours later, Isabella had made her very own pillowcase. Oh my was she excited! She had a smile from ear to ear, she was so pleased with herself. She used a sewing machine all by herself and the pillowcase came out great. Next class: pajamas pants.
Well I guess waiting her entire life was worth it!
