I've been working a lot on Christmas gifts around here and some of them involve hand sewing.  My 3 year old daughter, Ariel, has been watching with interest.  Yesterday she found my secret stash of buttons and claimed a handful for herself.  I think she was wondering if she could get away with it when I asked her if she wanted to sew those buttons onto something.  She was really excited and sat with the project until we discussed that some of those buttons would make excellent plates for her dollhouse!

I didn't take any in process photos because I didn't want to spoil the moment, and by the time she was done she was way too involved in the doll house to look proud and kept giving me "cheesy grins."  Anyways I wanted to share it with my crafty's! Smiley

And they made pretty good plates but they fell off the table so easily that she became frustrated quickly. 

It was a lot of fun!  I look forward to years of sharing craftiness together!!!

Progress not perfection.

Aw, that's awesome!  It seems like between 3-4 is a fantastic age for kids to start learning simple sewing, and what a terrific moment you two got to share!
