I said I'd get no more sewing in and that is true, but my sewing machine got used once more anyway. Since this is my last week of classes the kids who come know that we are probably not going to study and I thought we would play a game but we ended up sewing!
"We don't want to play a game. Let's make something!"
They think I'm a magician
"Make something? Make something? If we were going to make something I needed to buy materials and figure out a plan of action. Are you sure you wouldn't like to play Monopoly?"
"No. Let's make something."
The only spur of the moment idea I could find were those little cat tissue holders so I let the kids dive into my fabric drawers and choose a fabric and then I gave them a first lesson in using a sewing machine. They did very well and here are their cat tissue holders. I'm afraid we didn't have enough time for me to let them sew the beads and whiskers on themselves and I did that part very quickly for them. They were so pleased though and were boasting about showing the holders off the next day at school.
Ok. I'm off!
