Lavender Heart--Second Sewing Project
Today Hazel wanted to try sewing again, so we made a lavender filled heart out of felt. I let her choose two colors of wool felt and some embroidery floss and got her started. This time we used my mother's suggestion of doubling the thread which did keep her from pulling the needle off however required me to cut out her mistakes and made it harder to use the thread after it was cut. Together we made our way around her heart and then she filled it with lavender and I closed it and gave her a string. It is now hanging on her seasonal tree and she wants to make one for her teachers and her grandmothers for Valentine's Day.
Of course she wants to use the white felt for the gifts so she can save all the colors for herself.
As you can see she is happy with it and was proud to show it to Daddy.
