We are finally finding time to try out the new sewing machine my husband purchased for me.  I purchased a pattern on line and my 12 year old started her first real sewing project.  She used the fabric from her ripped jeans to make a new pair of jeans for her little sister’s new American Girl doll.  The small scale and thick fabric made for a challenging beginner’s project, but she did really well.
