Maya did a beginner's hand-sewing class at Jo-Anne's fabric store today. They made monsters out of T-shirts. She (and I) learned about pinning & cutting from a pattern, how to do a running stitch, and how to backstitch.
My Mom loved to sew, but I never was interested at all. Bet she would've loved helping Maya learn.
It was fun. I'm still not all that interested in sewing (fine motor agitation!!), but I loved hanging out & learning & laughing with Maya all morning!
