My son now loves sewing with me - and I love that he does! He likes to design things on his own, as well. When he wanted to sew something for Easter, I said, how about a stuffed bunny head? Alright, he said.
So we drew it out on felt, and cut out the pieces. We picked out some scrap fabric for the ears. And he picked out buttons for the eyes.
The thought behind it (it was for his sister) was very sweet...but the item itself turned out a bit creepy! Oh well - she LOVED her gift from her big brother. And he loved making it. It was a win-win night for all of us!
