Sewing with Grandma

Noah decided he wanted to use the sewing machine with Grandma. So he asked her to help him make some stuffed ducks. So they did...

but that wasn't enough for Noah, he went on to make a stuffed "cat" and a pillow as well.

I suggested to Benjamin that he find something he wanted to make with Grandma, too. I made simple suggestions like a pencil case, or a Lego bag. At first he wasn't sure... and then he decided. He wanted to make an alligator!

For some reason, Grandma was less than enchanted... but we all went to the fabric store to find the perfect fabric (not an easy task, as he had a very clear idea of what he wanted), and a ribbon to make the spikes on its back.

Benjamin got busy drawing a picture to show Grandma what it should look like, and Grandma made a pattern and started sewing it.

It took some convincing Benjamin that Grandma's idea for teeth would work out properly, but he finally agreed, so here it is!

Sadly, it looks like it's turned on him...
