Shops, internet and sewing groups inundate us with beautiful and adorable projects for our girls. Items for the boys appear far less frequently. Yet we want to shower them with the same love that is stitched into items made for our girls.
My friend Judy Day faithfully and thoughtfully includes something for her grandson in packages she sends with garments for her granddaughter. See one example in her Even Steven post.
When our delightful 10 yo grandson Robert spent the night recently, he spent a lot of time cuddled up on the couch, wrapped in a fleece throw. March Madness was well underway, watched intently by Robert and his Granddad.
As Robert trekked into the kitchen for a drink refill, with his blanket dragging the floor and slipping off his shoulders, Sonia Showalter’s poncho came to mind. That’s just what Robert needed!
He agreed it was a great idea and wanted to help. The technology of my Dream Machine fascinates him and he always asks a lot of questions about its capabilities. In my experience, kids love sewing machines. Robert chose a dragon from the built-in designs.
