The project was just too time consuming to keep their interest. Then they visited – dolls in hand – and I knew we had a winner! Making doll clothes, beds, and quilts was the introduction to sewing that we needed!
Start them with a simple pattern to ensure success. This darling pattern is made totally of rectangles so they are easy to cut, easy to sew, and will make even a beginning seamstress successful.
