So this Saturday we did another small project. Now that Maimoonah knows the running or straight stitch, I took out one of her old nappies and cut out a small piece and put dots on all the sides and asked her to stitch the running stitches along the dots.
Masha Allaah she threaded the needle on her own and I knotted it and she did this so independently without my help. Putting dots and having the nappy material which is very soft and easy to sew was a good move. I have to get some sewing supplies so until then I am using whatever is available in the house thus I used this old nappy : )
Then we used fabric paint and she drew this flower.
After it dried she ironed it for it to pop up. The paint was not enough I think and it did not make a big difference.
|This is the first time in her life she has used the iron!|
Any way then we stuffed the wool and stitched.
This is how it looks after completing.
I would not call it a great project, but she really loved the process and the final product, she actually wanted that to be a her small pillow. So I said we will make a pillow later on Insha Allaah!
She also stitched this embroidery card from the pack the sister sent her as a gift. She chose the colour of the thread and insisted on it, so I hope you can see the stitches Insha Allaah!
