This is my daughter Serena making her very own stuffed fish toy. About a month ago I taught my girls to sew on a sewing machine. After that, my girls have been sewing up a storm. Recently, Serena drafted her very own sewing pattern of a fish. All by herself, she pinned the pattern on fabric (Lila Tueller), cut it out, sewed the pieces together, turned them with a turning tool, and stuffed them. With a little help from me to attach the pieces with needle and thread, project stuffed fish was complete. It's never too early to teach your children to sew; my girls are 8. I have been sewing for years with them by my side. Within minutes they were sewing on their own.
