Well, look out mum , I'm coming in.
My youngest DD at 12 has decided that she's waited long enough in the sewing stakes and she wants to get involved. She's been happy until now, cutting out animal shapes and hand sewing them together (with plenty of stuffing) to make animals. In she comes to my sewing room today, and announced she was going to make a cushion. She had a hand-drawn pattern in one hand and a piece of fabric that I had printed a photo onto for her.
We modified the design a little to make it achievable for her, I cut her chosen fabric into strips and away she went. She actually is a very safe and straight sewer on my trusty old Pfaff. I guess all those years of watching have paid off.
Anyway , a couple of hours later, we had a cushion front.
Only one problem: now she's asking where she can "have a corner of her own" in my sewing room. There aren't enough corners for me, let alone one for her. LOL.
