The joy of sewing continues. When Camille saw Noah's handiwork, she was very eager to give it a try. It turns out that felt is perfect for these first attempts. Per SouleMama's advice I bought burlap before we left the States in anticipation of these early sewing experiences, but it must be on the bottom of those last few boxes I haven't dealt with yet. Perhaps that was a good thing. The felt wasn't only conveniently located, but also very handy for these amazing little creations...no fraying, easy to pull a needle through, and stiff enough to hold shape when turned into ornaments. I love the abstract designs that emerged. She loved picking the colors, stitching, and cutting off the loose ends after I zigzagged them on the machine.
