Sewing Project #1


Lori couldn’t wait to get started on a sewing project when we got her book Sewing School in the mail. She of course chose one of the hardest projects in the book, an apron. Doing this project together taught us both diligence and patience. Lori did very well at cutting out the pattern. Next came the sewing.


The trickiest part of sewing for Lori is how to hold the fabric while it goes through the machine. She has a tendency to tug or push on it causing the sewing machine to knot up. This is where the patience came in. I was about ready to pull my hair out after the tenth time of rethreading the machine.


We made it through though, and the final project is a well put together apron. Lori uses her apron to play waitress, hairdresser, store, and hotel. It was a fun project for us both, and I’m looking forward to the next one!
