Without fully considering the enormity of the challenge that lay ahead, I offered to lead an after-school sewing club for 5 to 7 year-olds. I know what you’re thinking!!!
The first few weeks were slow-going (I wouldn’t be exaggerating if I used the phrase ‘one step forwards, FIVE steps back’)!
However, at the risk of sounding ever-so cheesy, I have to say that I REALLY admired the girls’ enthusiasm for sewing, and the concentration and determination they put into learning something new. I learnt something from THEM in that respect!
Considering how slow progress was at the start of the term, I was REALLY proud of the girls’ finished projects! So, I thought I’d show you the little bookmarks they made.....
Aren’t they cute!!!
