Little Lady and the Sewing Machine Adventure.....

Nope, not the latest Ladybird book, but our real life adventure with another book.

Hoping Louise at Sew Scrumptious might read this as her daughter has just received a gorgeous new purple sewing machine for her birthday...Happy Birthday Isabella!

Here is the book.....

....and here is the very first project chosen by Little Lady.....

...a Monster Scooter Bag!

I traced the bits onto freezer paper so that we had them for future reference (I pop pattern pieces in an envelope taped to the inside back cover of books).  She helped me cut some with scissors and supervised me rotary cutting others!

Here she is pinning her stripes......

...and here she is sewing them!


Yep, that's all her with no interference from Mummy!

Here's the eyes sewn on to the bag cute is all that skew-wiff sewing!?

And here he is pinned ready for the all-round-the-edge-sewing bit.

And there is one VERY happy 5 year old with her Monster Scooter Bag! Great job Little Lady!  What a great book too, nice pattern templates, easy instructions...nuf said!

Back soon with more Little Lady Sewing....she'll be needing her own blog soon!

Ta-ta for now,

  1. Hi Nora, Love the scooter bag! Funnily enough I bought that very book for Isabella to go with her sewing machine. Very inspired to try the scooter bag now. Will email over address details for the dreses. I've just stepped down but there is a new co-ordinator in place. x
