Teaching them young

I had my 5 year old grandson here for a few days. He decided he wanted to make his mum and dad a cushion for a special surprise. So, what to do.... Well, his idea was a Murray River Cod for his dad and Hearts for mum.
Here goes.....
Tracing a picture of a fish onto fabric and then colouring it in.....

Then he traced some hearts on to vliesofix 

I then ironed them on to the chosen fabric and Nick then cut out the hearts

Now for the sewing... Nick was the foot control while I did the steering. He had to steer while I took a photo.....Such fun

Nick wanted to write a message to his mum and dad ...So here he his writing what he felt.....

Here is mum and dad with their present

Nicholas was so proud of himself and his mum & dad thought it was wonderful....
