It's 2009 and the start of the year couldn't be better. Bree, my oldest grand-daughter, spent New Year's Eve Day with me in the sewing room. She picked out fabric, used the rotary cutter, and successfully sewed together the front of our great simple purse pattern. (I did the stitching of the beads-but that is all.) We worked on the rest of the purse together and it turned out great. For a 4th grader, I think she did very well. It only took about 1 1/2 hours to do from start to finish. A great new pattern for the new year.
We also started to organize the sewing room-now that is another story!
We hope all of our sewing friends have a great new year. Please be sure to check out our web site for the start of a free pattern each month. It should be available early next week.
