Or shall I name this post "teaching my daughter to sew"? All summer break we've discussed making new curtains for her bedroom. Well, she has two days until school starts again, so we decided to tackle the curtains. Fortunately, they're simple and only require straight sewing. We pressed the previously-washed fabric, cut, and pinned it. Then she sewed the fabric to the lining. We turned them right side out, and pressed them again. We still have to do the final stitching to create the pocket for the curtain rod, but I'm quite proud of and grateful for our progress.
