Patchwork with Children

There is something very satisfying about pressing the pedal on a sewing machine and sewing two pieces of fabric together. So, ever since my children (two of them, anyway) could reach the pedal placed on a wooden box under the table they have enjoyed making bits and pieces or just trying out the sewing machine for the fun of it. I’ve had to learn not to be too precious about the machine but it has survived without any scars so far!

  • Okay, my son simply chose the fabrics for the cushion on the left but he designed and (mostly) executed the one on the right.
