When I was super little and my parents' friends' baby was worn, I sewed him mittens. They were mismatched red felt mittens and I was so proud of them. I think I might have been seven or eight years old at the time.

My favorite sewing project I ever made was a plush fish. It was the first project I ever made with my Girl Scout troop when I was in 5th grade. I didn't do.... a "great" job but I was still super proud of it!

My favorite sewing project ever was the year I made a tablecloth, placemats, Christmas tree skirt and chain, and gave them all to my Mom as Christmas gift.

I made most of my daughters clothes when she was little. Now I sew for her kids.

my first lesson was in Grade 6 (approx. 12 years old) and we made linen kitchen me hooked on sewing and I made my own wedding dress

Your own wedding dress?! That is so impressive. I'd love to see a photo if you have one. )
