I have been most looking foward to today. My sister-in-law just bought a machine and today we put together a tote bag from Bend the Rules Sewing which I bought her for Christmas along with a little notions kit I put together.

It was nice to take a back seat and play the role of teacher for the day. I realize that actually teaching music has forced me to do what I thought was completely unnatural for me (and was definitely at the beginning)–which is to teach and to do so more instinctively.

Here is her bag. I think it looks great, particularly because it is one of her first projects.
It’ll be perfect for my nephew to cart around his toys in.
