first sewing project


I found my first sewing project!  My sweet grandmother taught me to sew when I was about 10 years old.  This is the first thing that I made(with her help).


Can you guess what I had inside?



I don't know if little girls play jacks anymore, but I use to play all the time.



I am happy to report that the balls still bounce and I can still play jacks : )
I soon advanced to making clothes for my Barbie!

So cute! I wish I knew where my first sewing projects were...three pillows made out of the ugliest blue print w/ multi-colored dots that you could ever find!

I couldn't honestly say I remember what my first sewing project was. I know my first project without any help was a skirt when I was 11 or 12 (it's in a family photo we had taken), and I can remember making a doll and a pincushion out of books I got from the primary school library. They'd have to be pretty early on, but couldn't say for sure what was my first real project.

How great to be able to know that this was your first every!
