  1. Thanks for including my ideas along so many other great ones! I happy to see sewing highlighted on one of my fav teaching blogs!

  2. Thank you for featuring our sewing project! It was a lot of fun for my daughter to make the blanket. Now I have a few more ideas, especially those cute bookmarks!

    Skills like these are not easy to teach, but they sure are beneficial. Thanks for including life skills at ABC and 123!

  3. Ooooh...these sewing projects look almost delicious! Very daughter would love to tackle one of these craft projects.

  4. HI! I am your newest follower! Really like your blog!


  5. I would like to incorporate more sewing into our homeschool day. So much to learn and do and so little time! We do have a big sewing project planned in the upcoming months. I really like the sewing cards! Thanks, they will make a nice warm up exercise.

    Last year we sewed handmade Valentine Cards. They turned out so cute and special for friends and family.
