This was Penelope on the first day of class with her new machine, that she got to take home by the way.
A Limited Edition Project Runway machine with a ton of stitches and much nicer then my machine. The class was a week long class, 5 hours a day. Surely this was going to be too much sewing for Penelope and she would get tired of it. I was wrong! She loved it and never wanted to leave.
Here she is sewing away when I popped into to check on her, what a pro! At the end of the week there was a graduation and ice cream party and the kids in the class got to show off their creations.
Penelope learned to make a backpack, pillow case, pajama pants and a roll-up bag traveling bag. It's too bad Moore's only offers this class once in the summer, Penelope was sad for it to be over. Still in that one week she learned so much. I will definitely be encouraging her to keep at it, in fact she has already picked out a pattern for her first homemade dress, now the fun part, fabric shopping!
