This year's Christmas was a crafty Christmas at our house. Each of the older kids (5 to 11) asked for different items for crafting. Lynzie, 11, received some supplies for ribbon embroidery, a book on how to make stuffed animals from the Peter Rabbit series, and a bunch of yarn and Aida cloth for various projects.
Cainan, 7, really wanted to learn to cross stitch so he got a starter box of needed things for that. Elisha, 8, has been begging me to teach him to sew, so he got a box of sewing supplies and a promise to raid my box of scraps. I wanted to teach Selah, 5, to stitch a straight line, so we got her a small sewing kit as well.
|I used the same idea with Elisha. He stitches like a pro now!|
|After Elisha finished his first little sampler, he was ready to move on to making a pillow! This has been a dream of his for most of this last year! I'll post pictures when he gets all done with it.|
