Mother & Daughter Sewing Brunch

Saturday, Jan. 26th we hosted a little Sewing Brunch for some of our friends. I love to sew, and Kivi is loving learning. One of her devotions challenged her to invite some friends over so we did. We had a lovely little brunch and taught our friends how to sew chickens! 

We had three sewing machines and each girl cut out the simple rectangle shape to make the chicken body and the triangle to make the beak. I had made the combs before hand. Then they sewed them up, stuffed them and added rice to the bottom before hand stitching the bottom. 

Everyone's chickens turned out so cute! It was a great simple afternoon project and the girls did a wonderful job. I see more sewing parties in our future! Maybe a sheep, or owl or apron?

All the mamas and their girl babies!

It was such a sweet, old fashioned get together. I'm glad I was able to be a part of it. How wonderful for the girls to be learning the almost lost art of sewing. Nice job!
