My friend dropped off a wonderful gift for Maisie- a mini Janome sewing machine that used to belong to her daughter (who is now a teen)!
My 4 yr old (who has excellent eye/hand coordination) was immediately enthralled and wanted to learn to sew right away.
Everyday we’ve completed a project- she’s doing microwavable bean bags filled with rice for ‘owwies’. She made a heart the first day, a triangle for her teacher the second day, and today we did a bigger triangle with rag box applique hearts and other decorations.
Maisie said she wanted to be like an elf and make a lot of them for Christmas 🎁 presents-
This teeny Janome is a workhorse! It sewed through thick woolen material with no issues and has 10 stitch settings!
Each day she gets more confident with this thing- I should probably start her on hand sewing as well.
I hauled out a brand new sewing machine that had still been in the box for 5 yrs and never touched for me to use next to hers. It’s a Brother computerized 130 stitch quilting/sewing machine and I love it so far, too!
