We have been doing these homeworks and when we are done we work on a little craft project. Today we made these wax creations.

This one is a Sophia sews. She wanted to make a skirt. She is tough to sew with. She has a vision of what she wants and gets frustrated when she doesn't have the skills yet to make it just sew (hehe so). We came half way on this and it turned out pretty good. She has a dress that is short in the front and long in the back that she adores. So we did a little cutting on the bottom. I was just sure it was gonna be wonky but it's not.It took us about an hour which is my limit on sewing with kids (scissors, pins, seam ripper my machine that I adore...you see where I am going with this).
I would definately do this again with her she does push my sewing ingenuity.

Well I am in love with this one! It was a lot of work simply because of the amount of pieces but it was well worth it. There are inside pockets as well as the outside. The one change I would make if I were to make it again is I would make it wider around the edges. It does fit quite a bit though. The directions were clear though there were a few times that I would have liked a few more pictures.
