Learning to Sew & The Importance of Handwork - Aprendiendo Coser y La Importancia de Trabajar con las Manos
I enjoy so many exceptional blogs written by so many TALENTED mama's. They sew, they weave, they knit, sculpt, paint, invent stories. And I feel like I have SO far to go, in those areas. These things do attract me though, and I feel they are an important element in our lives - to slow down, to listen, to hear wisdom of century old crafts, to know origins.
Obviously, some of these crafts come easier than others. But here are some of my first efforts at sewing. It involved a short, straight line. Ha! Can't get more simple than that I suppose. I had bought the sewing machine at least a full year prior to actually pulling it out of the closet and using it. Just threading it and getting that first stitch was a major hooray for me. I am beginning to understand the benefits of handwork for children, seeing my own small results.
