Why am I so excited about this?
(1) Because I’ve never sewn a thing in my life. I didn’t grow up with a heritage of women to teach me things like how to sew. But that doesn’t mean it’s ever too late to try new things and learn new skills.
(2) Because instead of being a controlling perfectionist like I once would’ve been, I guided and helped Miss Nine, but allowed her to do most of it herself. No, it’s not straight and it’s not perfect. But her sense of pride and accomplishment is worth far more than straight lines ever will be.
(3) Because this totally embraces my heart towards less consumerism and a simpler life. $3 spent, and not only does my daughter have a bag she loves, but we have spent the afternoon learning, sharing and growing together.
Sometimes the small things mean everything x
