The first project was Jacob's. He wanted a cape made from an adult t-shirt. His project was easy. There was no sewing or thinking involved, lol! Here is a look at his.
Alissa's project was a bit more complicated. It required A LOT of thinking, pondering, procrastinating, and pulling a sewing machine out of a three year hibernation. Have I mentioned I don't sew? I thought the project through and planned it in my head, but when it came down to actually sewing, I chickened out! I had to ask my mother to come down and hold my hand, lol! That presented another problem. She didn't have the advantage of having thought the project through as I had.

was telling her. Notice, she is not behind the
Our ideas of how to put the project together didn't exactly match, but we had fun laughing at ourselves. She thought I was kidding when I told her I had forgotten the very little bit I had ever known about sewing. It didn't take her long to figure out I wasn't! :)
|Haha! She finally ended up behind the|
machine on one little part I just couldn't handle.
I did do most of the sewing, though!
The final product wasn't perfect, but it was good enough to make my little girl happy. That and enjoying the time with my mother is what mattered most. Here is a look at Alissa's project. It is a sleeping bag for her Bummy. I wasn't ready to tackle a zipper, so we used Velcro instead. Alissa picked the fabrics. The inside of the sleeping bag is made from an old t-shirt.
Until we meet again, may you be blessed!
