Sewing on My New Machine
By Megan, 4th Grade
I started sewing wallets, stuffed animals, pillow and lot of other small projects, but then in Christmas 2011 I got a sewing machine. The sewing machine lets me make bigger things faster. The first thing I made on my new sewing machine were ornaments out of brown paper bag and then sewed around the edge. I also made a dress out of greenish and blue tropical fabric with ruffled sleeves and yellow ribbon down the front of the top sixth of it. I’ve made three skirts: one is a circle skirt and the others are skirts made with two sides of fabric, unlike the circle skirt with one piece of fabric in the shape of a circle with a circle in the middle. Right now I am sewing a nightdress with a kitten pattern on it in soft fabric.
