oh that's just stitch and flip mummy!
I'm sure in every parent's life there are lots of times when you find your children are better than you at something. I just didn't expect it to be sewing - well not yet anyway.......
Miss K went on a young quilters workshop on Sunday and made this obscenely wonderful pocket wall hanging, complete with photographs on fabric, and all lined, wadded and quilted...
mummy: so how did you make the bottom of the pockets so neat?
Miss K: oh that's just stitch and flip mummy....
well if she's that cheeky again I shall set this fire breathing embroidered dragon on her!

Miss K did an awesome job! What a terrific idea for a first sewing project. It is great seeing the younger generation getting a love of textile crafts.ReplyDelete
Cute project! Isn't it amazing when our kids pick up on something so quickly! Good for her.ReplyDelete
Tis obviously genetic! She must be very proud, and I'm sure you must be too.ReplyDelete
Don't you know stitch and flip?!!! She has done a great job by the way.ReplyDelete
I am so impressed! What a fantastic job she did, I think it is also great that she is learning how to sew, she will be very pleased she did years from now.ReplyDelete
Miss K is very talented, perhaps she should have her own blog!!! My two daughters are my computer technical support team!ReplyDelete
What a clever little bunny you have.ReplyDelete
You've taught her well, proud Mummy.
It looks lovely little miss driftwood well done.
Excellent job, good for her.. she'll be starting her own Etsy soon :-)ReplyDelete
Seriously impressive. I'm not sure I could do this - please can we have a tutorial on stich and flip Miss K?ReplyDelete
She's very clever...obviously a great talent in the making. I love the wall hanging.ReplyDelete
Margaret and Noreen
what a cheeky little one!ReplyDelete
This made me laugh, fire breathing dragon and all. What a great project she's done though, wonderful work especially with the photographs. Hopefully, there will be no more cheek and so you won't have to pull out the dragon!ReplyDelete
A great project, must make you proud to see a little chip of the block. It's great when they grasp something, but oh how little they think we knowReplyDelete
I am so impressed! How fabulous, and yet another skilled sewer, putting my attempts to shame. Maybe I should have gone with her!xReplyDelete
Ha ha ha! Love it when children are so nonchalant about things and you're not. Miss K has done a wonderful job.ReplyDelete
Miss K is obviously following in her mummy's clever footsteps with this project. Sounds like this is the beginning of a very successful hobby - or maybe you could go into business together!ReplyDelete
I just love little crafty children. They are so imaginative and just love whatever they make. We can learn alot from them and their crafty style, can't we?ReplyDelete
You have a very talented girl there. Is that Bagpuss? Excellent choice. Love the dragon too.ReplyDelete
Wow, that looks fantastic, well done Miss K.ReplyDelete
Wow, that's so cool! I love the colors she used, and it looks like it came together so well! It's great that she enjoyed doing it so much and seems to think it's 'easy'! That shows her talent!ReplyDelete
what a fab job!ReplyDelete
(kids, eh? cheeky little things...)
Awesome! Miss K is very talented ... :0)ReplyDelete
Great job! Maybe you can get her to finish all your sewing from now on :-DReplyDelete
What a wonderful job she did! I'm just starting my nine-year-old on her first quilting project - isn't it lovely to see them follow your passion :-)ReplyDelete
That's a really lovely piece of work! And I second the request for a 'stitch and flip' tutorial - I have no idea what that means, but it sounds good!ReplyDelete
This is gorgeous...you have a very clever little girl there.. just like her Mum :) GxReplyDelete
