Sewing Night - March 27 & April 17

 The last few sewing nights have been fairly quiet.  We've had a small handful each week, and we've been plugging away, working on repairs and various small projects.
 The week leading up to Easter, Emily wanted to make some stuffed bunnies.  I remembered there was a bunny pattern in one of my quilting books, so I got Mom to print me a copy of the pattern, and we attempted to make one.
 We sewed up the arms as legs as directed, but it was a bit tricky, because the body/head of the bunny is supposed to be at least twice this size.  It was a tight squeeze, but I managed to sew it all together!  Kinda makes me wish we still had that big old photocopier we had several years ago.  Oh well.  Our disproportioned bunny still looks kinda cute!
Allee has been sewing up a storm!  She decided she wanted to make PJ shorts, and I guided her through the first pair, and since then she's cut out and sewn 2 more!  She's a natural, and she absolutely loves it.  The fun part is, she doesn't like it when I "hover" when she's sitting at the machine.  She shoos me away, then totally gets into the zone.  I can't wait to see how she progresses!  The best part is, she's helping me get my sewing mojo back, because I'm realizing how quick and easy some of these projects are, and it just makes me want to whip out a pattern and make something!
