Little Miss Abi

Little Miss Abi, age 8, has taken an interest in sewing. Using an old shoe box, - decorated of course - she robbed the household sewing supplies to build her own sewing kit.

Seeing that intensity of purpose, Grandma took her to the fabric store and we purchased supplies for her first project. A hand sewn project.

There was a recent baby in the extended family and Abi decided to sew a bib for the baby. Grandma 'guessed' at the size and shape and did the major cutting. Abi did all the sewing. Rosettes for eyes, a piece of felt for the nose and great back stitch work with embroidery thread for the mouth.

Following in Grandma's footsteps, Abi grabbed the nearest relative - in this case 'Mom' - to model, prior to modelling it herself.
And here is the seamstress herself modelling her first project.
Great job Abi. Creativity rules again.
