    Cool! I didn’t learn much about sewing until adulthood, so I appreciate any tips on teaching children sewing.

    I can’t wait for my son to be old enough for us to enjoy this hack!

    My 6-year-old daughter has been wanting to try using my sewing maching, and I’ve been hesitant. Now I think I can safely give it a try. Of course, once she learns how to use the sewing machine, I’ll have to be careful about putting it away so she doesn’t try to do it on her own.
    p.s. One Hour Craft is a great website – I saw lots of other projects I’d like to try.

    I absolutely love One Hour Craft… Between them and Whipup I am never without crafty inspiration… (Since Asha mentioned those extra-crafty Aussies.)
