that sang at their embroidery frames
grew from their needles.

Perhaps the little girls weren't exactly
singing at their sewing machines,
but we did have a really
good time sewing together!
Little Lauren's grandmother called the store asking
about a sewing party. It sounded like fun to me, so
agreed to do a little project for 7 girls who were 11
I enlisted Issa's help with the project. She had no difficulty sewing together the little owl wristlet. After drawing out an owl, I cut the various parts in colorful felt, then step by step had them assemble it. Issa had no difficulty at 8 years old, but then, as she informed me, she is an "experienced sewer".
So now little Lauren is 11; 6 of her favorite friends have matching owl wristlets that can hold change, hand sanitizer. a key or a special treasure, and a good time was had by all!
