Mom, can I do some sewing?
Updated: May 16, 2019
I must confess the question took me by surprise.
I hated sewing as a kid so I never thought about including it in my list of unplugged activities.
But hey, it turns out that it can be a cool activity if nobody forces you to do it.
So my 6yo took her plastic needle from an old craft kit and I gave her some pink yarn.
And heigh-ho, heigh-ho, off to work she went:
She sewed a dress I cannot fit anymore and a handmade book for her Granny.
And she even fixed the giant holes of my “I love New York” t-shirt that I bought ten years ago in NY and even though it's almost ruined, I’m never ever going to throw away.
I'm thinking that next week I'll organize a "spring cleaning all your kitchen cupboards" workshop.
