my seven year old niece wishes to be a fashion designer. the girl is really into clothing and accessories. even as a toddler she refused to put on PJs that didn't involve a skirt. the girl is hardcore!
the other weekend after enjoying the fashion at the avant garden exhibit, we got her great grandma's sewing machine in working order and she began her first sewing project. she was soooooo excited, and she was a good sport! her first project? she made a small stuffed phone for her sister, since she doesn't have one. ha! too funny. her next projects may involved a furry pillow and a tiny sequined dress. we shall see! i hope she sticks with it.
