Work in Progress Wednesday- A little project

This week the work in progress isn’t my project but rather  my five year old daughter’s.  After seeing me work on my embroidery project last week Stella talked about nothing else other than getting her own hoop and learning to embroider.

Over the weekend I made up her own special little girl embroidery kit consisting over a few flosses in her favorite colors, a embroidery hoop in orange (of course!), and some small rather blunt tapestry needles.  Since receiving her little kit she has been hard at work in the hammock learning a few simple stitches.  Her goal is to make a few Christmas gifts for loved ones this year.

    Wonderful! My 4 1/2 year old daughter started embroidery a few weeks ago and doesn’t let a day go by without doing some stitching. It is such a delight to watch them take such care and focus on creating beautiful things, isn’t it?

    It really is delightful! I’m amazed that she is able to focus so well. I have to admit I’m more than excited about having a crafting buddy!

    That is so great, I have hopes and dreams that my little one will be a crafting buddy too! The boys love all this kid of stuff too !

    Wow! Great job Stella! Rainer (4 yrs old) is working on stitching with yarn on cardboard with plastic needles. It holds his attention better than writing/coloring, so I’ll have to try getting him to do his letters in stitches.

    I just love to see children stitch.

    I like to use hessian with a tapestry needle and wool. I make kits to encourage little ones to sew :)
