MY {daughter's} CREATIVE SPACE

Over the recent school holidays Goose, my gorgeous 6 year old daughter, stayed with her Granny in the country for a few days as she does every school holidays. Goose relished the one on one time of pure attention on her and could have stayed for the whole holidays I am sure. On her return I asked the obligatory question - "Did you have a good time at Granny's?" and her eyes lit up - "Yes!"
Special.

One of the activities in this very full few days was the making of a headband. She searched through Granny's fabric drawer and Goose chose this broderie anglaise fabric as her favourite. Despite Granny's prompting to perhaps choose something a little more colorful, I think she chose well - it'll go with everything.

She was so very, very proud.
"I did all the sewing myself and Granny only helped a tiny bit".
I think I am a little bit proud too.

If you'd like to make your very own headband, you'll find a fantastic tutorial here.

Last holidays she sewed her own skirt and learned to knit and was sooo excited about it. A little crafter in the making who is so very privileged to have both a Granny and a Grandma who take the time to pass these skills on to her.

If you'd like to be inspired by many other crafty people and their creative spaces, head over here.

Your daughter has sewn a lovely headband, and all at the age of 6! and I agree that her colour choice was a great one..a girl needs to be able to mix and match ones wardrobe and accessories. I too have young girls that are learning to sew so will take a look at the tutorial, thanks.

How very special. I used to love hunting through Nan's fabrics and buttons to make things on her sewing machine. Great bonding time for Granny and Goose. : )
