I’m not even sure if I can count this as our first sewing project, but it’s our first attempt. I bought this adorable dino kit on our UK trip and thought it would be a really good place to start with H and sewing.

And it was a great little kit! Very straightforward, everything we needed was there to hand sew this little guy. But H was more interested in playing with the sequins than in stitching.

She did help me trim a few pieces, and she pulled the needle through the felt twice. But I did the rest, which is completely fine. She loved the dino when he was finished, and she was proud of herself for helping. He’s joined her ever growing dinosaur collective.
