Have a SEW HAPPY Birthday!

She watched and taught the girls
 that sang at their embroidery frames
 while the great silk flowers
 grew from their needles. 
         ~Louise Jordan Miln,
         The Feast of Lanterns

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
years old.  
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!
