So today I go get him (they live about 20 miles) and sure enough he has his 'design'. He hits the sewing room with the vigor of a quilter with a new quilt magazine! He knows exactly what colors he wants and even faced with all the fabrics in my stash, he sticks to his idea. We measure out and he makes his decisions. He does 95% of the sewing. He was excited about being able to use the iron (bet that changes when it comes to ironing his shirts) and I even had him put on a 'glutz' glove and helped him with using the rotary cutter. Here is his finished 'blanket':
He designed the purple door to open and even knew which direction he wanted it to open. It's not clear, but above the door is a gold crown and he used a red pen to write his sister's name on it. Above the crown we embroidered "Princess Tiffani's Castle".
I think he did a great job and I have at least one grandchild that enjoys sewing with Grandma!
Katie who had a great Sunday!!
