Sewing with my Granddaughter, Belén

I always enjoy spending time with our granddaughters.  Last Friday, I had the pleasure of sharing the afternoon with our oldest granddaughter, Belén.  She loves to explore my sewing studio and is always eager to make something together.

Friday was no exception and while we were running an errand, Belén discovered the cutest princess fabric and convinced me that she just had to get some.  I suggested that we make her a princess pillowcase for her bed and she eagerly agreed.  Once we purchased the fabric,  we returned to Nana’s house and busily prepared to make the pillowcase.

There are several free pillowcase patterns (9 to be exact) at the Quilt Crossing blog site and we used my favorite, the Hot Dog Method pattern, because you achieve such a nice clean finish by using this method.

In no time at all, we had finished a princess pillow case for Belén.  She was so excited, she couldn’t wait to try it out, as you can see in the next picture!  Although, it will be a lot softer when she adds her own pillow inside the pillowcase!

We still had time to do one more project before taking Belén home.  Belén requested a personalized bracelet.  She loves to sit with me while I sew and is always such a big helper.  She gets so excited to choose the different decorative stitches to use to decorate her bracelet.

It was definitely a fun afternoon with Belén and I don’t think it will be long before she will be sewing her very own projects.  Maybe, still with a little help from Nana!

Hmmm, somehow the end of the sucker disappeared???

What projects have you been sewing?  I’d love to hear about them too!

Happy Sewing!
