It was fun to teach him the art of ironing seams. And, with a little advice here and there, he could do the rest. But what I admire the most is the determination.
He planned making a black cape for a while. We’ve got a fabric somewhere in the summer and the ribbon a couple of weeks ago. So, on a day without any plans, he just went for it.
It’s not the first sewing project of Alexander. We practice hand and machine sewing for a couple of years. I sew. Their grandmother does as well, and frequently helps the kids to work on own little projects. But it went off once I brought a second sewing machine especially for the kids. First, it was a police dog harness and now this cape.
