Blue Eyes got a sewing machine for Christmas (thanks Grandma and Grandpa!). This one, in fact. I love that it's a real sewing machine and not a toy. She loves it because it's Hello Kitty and is of the opinion that there's pretty much nothing better than that. Six year olds are awesome.
|Diligently working on her very first project|
Two projects have now been sewn with it. Blue Eyes first made a drawstring backpack that she gave away as a birthday gift for a neighbor. The second was a dress for this month's Project Run & Play.

|Red + Hello Kitty = a very happy Blue Eyes|
I like Hello Kitty. This is my favorite dress and I made some of it. My favorite thing about sewing it was when my mom helped me with the twists and turns.
Aaaaaand that was all I could get out of her. Blue Eyes is six years old and not big on sharing much if she doesn't feel like it.
|The heart snaps are super fun. Just in case you were wondering|
|Two snaps per strap to keep everything nicely in place Those curves really were deadly.|
|I added fleece interfacing to the bow for extra puffiness|
|She was more interested in playing on the tablet than posing for pictures|
