Star Wars fans are so excited about the opening ofÂ The Force Awakens movie. Â Well aware of that marketing opportunity, 11 yo granddaughter Laurel has been busy stocking Star Wars items in her Etsy store, SewAmazingGifts. Â
Today was a Star Wars marathon. We worked together in the sewing room as she made samples and filled orders.Â First she finished the apron she started last week.Â It just warms my heart to I see her comfortably and happily stitching away on my Brother Dream Machine. Â Seeing her progress through the years makes this Nana so proud.
I pressed fabric while she sewed and covered the buttons.Â We were so busy that I forgot to take a picture of Laurel at work.
The pins and ponytail buttons were made with Hope Yoder’s fabulous Button Cover Machine.Â It’s such a great addition to my sewing room–it’s quick, fun and offers so many opportunities for creative gifts.
