Sewing with Salina

Salina came for a couple of sewing sessions last week. She has just finished the 7th grade and is a very enthusiastic sewist. Last year she made pillows, PJ’s and a backpack. This year she wanted to tackle a quilted tote bag.

She selected a pattern from a Quilts and More Magazine. I helped her adapt the measurements to make the bag smaller than the original design and she selected her fabrics.

Then the sewing startedat the machine

She added an interior pocket in the bag lining.  She decided that she wanted to quilt her tote in a grid pattern. I had some fusible fleece and she marked and followed the lines. She’s such a good straight stitcher!

She is well on her way to becoming a very accomplished accomplished sewist. She did a great job. Yay Salina!

  1. Impressive job on the tote! Her friends are going to want one, too. Good for you for "passing on the needle'.
