Keeping it in the Family

Someone’s invaded my sewing space…

I’m sure we’re not the only ones who like to save a few Christmas presents to open and play with (long ago unwrapped of course) for the dreary months of January and February. My daughter has been itching to have a go at her Sew CoolΒ sewing machine ever since unwrapping it, and last weekend we finally gave in. It’s a kind of thread-less machine to make their first projects easier.

To be honest, I’m not totally sure how it works: it has a twin needle and must dispense some kind of glue that fuses the fabric (a kind of felt) together. I loved how it was mess free (phew!), but still gave her practice at feeding the material through. She’s had a go on my machine, but it did make me incredibly nervous, so this seems the perfect stop-gap for now. She was so proud of her first project: a little, stuffed owl. And I’m so pleased that we can both share this fab hobby together πŸ™‚

  1. Aw bless! My daughter has a little machine that has no bobbin so does chainstitch but it’s a nightmare to get the tension right so she’s only used it a few times. This one seems better even if it is not actually sewing!

  2. How cute! I have got my 10 year olds at school making a fleece hooded poncho! Two completed and the others almost! They are just loving it! I have a waiting list to join!!! Glad you have got her started early- I was 7! Let’s start a revolution!
