Unexpected Sewing Lesson

*The post may contain affiliate links. Head over to my About page to read my Disclosure Statement.

We had an unexpected sewing lesson this weekend. My oldest went to stay at Grandma’s house and my middle child, Liam, wanted to sew something.


We decided to crank out a quick pillow in some scrap I had laying around. He did so well! He was very patient and even asked a few questions. We just kept the machine on the slowest speed. I thought about getting the pedal out, but he can’t reach the ground with his feet and I was afraid he’d slam his foot to the ground and wreck his piece.

Since this was a first project and my goal was to catch his interest, I didn’t push him to do anything that he was unsure of and I measured everything out for him. For our next project, I would like to create a list of steps and guide him through them, but I will still be available to help when needed.

He is soooooo proud of himself! He is already asking to make something else. This little pillow is more of a doll size pillow, but I’m going to put some thought into his next project. I want it to be some he can make quickly, but actually use.

If anyone has any ideas throw them in the comments. 🙂
