First she learned how to thread bobbins, that was fun. There were only four of them in the machine packet, and that's enough for now, but we put that on our shopping list.
|Adding a narrow border in, what else, black!|
|Pinning in the last border strip.|
|This is the inner border. She has a wider brown border left to attach.|
One border seam didn't catch for a couple of inches, so she learned how to unsew, which taught the value of putting in more pins.
The experience was altogether very pleasant for everyone. In the process of the lessons, we thought of things we added to our shopping list:
- 1/4 inch seam foot -- not in the basic kit
- magnetic pin catcher
- thread nippers
...and she already shopped the pattern section of our local Joann's for some likely next projects.
|The pattern on the left, the sleeveless duster is Miss E's preferred next project.|
Rita, if you're reading this, thanks again!
