Sewing With Kids-Sewing Space
If you want your child to get excited about sewing then they need a little space. And they need to be able to reach the pedal. They don't need their own machine, but if you are like me, I don't like my kids touching my machine. Not that it is anything fancy, but I like it and don't want the tension all messed up. So my daughter was given her own machine for her birthday. Just a basic machine. My mom did a lot of research into machines because of course what little kid doesn't want a Hello Kitty machine. But those and other kid machines didn't get the best reviews. So a basic big kid machine was the best option. And if you get them at the right time, they go on sale!
We happened to have a little table sitting around. It's an outdoor side table but perfect for her machine so I snagged it and took it inside. I also had a little kid chair. Part of a table set but again, prefect for this so upstairs it stays.
My next post in this series will be a book review. It's a good one so don't miss it!
