Not embroidery but wanted to share. My granddaughter is wanting to learn to sew, she's 6 and I thought this was a good project to start with, lol!

She was a bit testy at first and wanted to quit, but once she got the hang of it, I couldn't keep up. Of course part of that was I needed to stop and rethread her needle every few stitches, lol!

Teach them young. Sewing and craft is slowly dying and it's up to us "oldies" to teach the "youngies" Sadly my Grand daughter is not interested so it finishes with me

Yes it's a bit sad. all I ever wanted to do was to learn, but my mum didn't know quite enough and Grandma lived a bit far away. I had to wait until I had married, then went to Adult Education to learn.

Great job. I did the same thing with my boys to teach them to hand sew buttons on things. They made both Grandmothers a pincushion out of there sewing projects. Happy Stitching
