My Apprentices'


For Christmas my Mum bought the girl’s a sewing machine each along with 2 fat quarters.

My girl’s have been asking me for ages to teach them to sew or knit or crochet, so when Mum surprised us with these cute little machines the girls and I were over the moon and they couldn’t wait to get stuck in.

So after we finished rearranging my sewing area, we set up a little table for both of them to sit at and make there items for their favourite toys.


Miss J wanted to make a sleeping bag for Dog and Miss G wanted to make a skirt for her Horse.

I must say I am very proud of their efforts and they listened very patiently while I explained how the machine works, how to measure and cut material and how to put the pins in place.

This little machine is fantastic for little beginners and has 12 different stitches which includes 2 types of button holes.  These machines can be purchased at Lincraft.

Does your little one want to learn to sew.  What have they created?
