I don’t have many regrets in my life. I try and live every day to its fullest and not worry about what I didn’t get accomplished.
But I do regret that I never learned to sew when I was young and had the time.
When you are a teenager you just don’t have that mindset and wisdom to realize what is really important in life, life is all about you and your parents are just old fuddy-duddies.
My mother is an AMAZING seamstress.
Like top notch.
She made 3 of her daughters wedding dresses and bridesmaid dresses.
She makes beautiful quilts.
But I never asked her to teach me to sew.
I can barely sew a button on.
And it is very easy (and convenient) to just ask Mom to mend the clothes around here. The boys know to just ask Grandma if they need something mended. And she gets it back to them usually by the next day.
Talk about spoiled!
But as I’ve gotten older and wiser I realize that I missed out on having my Mommy teach me to sew. And I still could…..but now my time is so limited and so it is time to pass the torch.
So I asked Grandma if she would do a sewing class for my girls.
This is THE BEST thing ever.
The girls learned SO much just in their first class.
And had so much fun.
Ava didn’t even get her coat off before she had to show me all the stuff in her special sewing box that Grandma made up for each of them.
They can’t wait for their next class!
So the sewing skills may have skipped a generation but I’m determined that the girls will become great seamstresses.
Just like their Grandma.
But if you don’t have a Super Grandma in your life who can sew for you I want to highly recommend a friend of mine in CA who sews amazing Barbie and Ken clothes.
It is soooo hard to find nice Barbie and Ken clothes that fit and are modest.
K is doing commission work for dolls and Barbies. Check out her stuff HERE.
I personally don’t see how she can sew something so tiny!! But it all is so cute!!!!!
She must have more patience then I do!
