Finally Started Sewing!  

Posted by Johnny

We finally started sewing the 4-H projects yesterday. Wow we have a lot of work ahead of us. Morgan has made a great start on hers she has the bodice of the dress pieced together. My goal is to have her done with the dress this week so she can start on the jacket next week.
This is the first time either one of them have tried to sew. I tried to encourage them years ago and they never wanted to. Now they both decided the same year to try. It would have been so much easier when they were younger.
Morgan is sewing a dress and a jacket for school wear. Since we home school I guess school wear could be pajamas too! LOL!
Spencer is in an open category, so he chose to do a Civil War costume. (Bad choice)
This costume has already cost me $50! That is finding the fabric on clearance. It also called for (16) 1" buttons and (6) 5/8" buttons. I could not find them anywhere on sale or used so I had to get them and bite the bullet, since we only have 3 weeks for him to complete this.
Spencer is just practicing in these pictures. He is showing me that he can sew straight. Which is good, because he can't cut straight!
