I let my kid use the sewing machine.

Adams pillow.jpgI was glued to his side the whole time (other than the few minutes when he was waiting for me, during which he attempted to unwind a spool of thread and got bored before he got finished - and we had Quite The Serious Discussion after that), but Adam did most all of the sewing on this pillow cover (click for big) himself.  (I put in the zipper.)

I think the real motivation was the chance to use the fancy embroidery stitches on my machine (a 1964 Singer Touch ‘N’ Sew), but he did consent to standard straight seams. :)   I think it’s pretty darn cool that my kids are learning to do this.

Also: I love those red dianthus.  That’s about the only part of my front flowerbed that isn’t awash in weeds, and it makes me happy every day.
