Through my church I was asked to teach 11 year old girls about preparing to became a young woman which includes crafts, learning about life, religion, and homemaking!?! It was my turn to teach them this last week and I did not have a clue about what to do. Easter seemed to come so early this year and I had planned on teaching them how to sew on buttons to a little magnet bunny craft project.
Out came the sewing machine, the iron and board, the swear jar…you are getting the picture thus far, right?
I have a cute little bunny pattern that I bought years ago and have used it before.
So how bad could it be to sew up a few little bunnies. NO WHITE THREAD!
It would either be military (husband) green or scout (son) brown. So they got the brown because it was already loaded-is that the word?
Sewed a few up-much less language then usual! SHOCK!
But still I had to go to the fabric store. The helpful clerk asked if I was looking for “flats” when I said I needed a yard of material. “Flats”? So I told her I did not speak "fabric". She showed me around and at this point I am trying not to have a panic attack. I don’t do well in places I am not familiar with or know what I am looking for and it was a sea of material….
“Deep breath, be one with the air” as my husband says, ringing in my head.
Poor clerk! She took me by the hand and helped me find some material, white thread and a few buttons.
OK, all is well.
Ended up teaching the girls how to thread a needle and sew on three buttons, put a face on the bunny and color the inside of the ears! YEA! Done!
Homemaking??? My only two talents are painting and eating!
Poor girls. Talk about being out of your comfort zone!
So now I am offering you a “quickie” giveaway to whom ever leaves a comment (good or bad). Hoping to give a good home to these poor little magnet bunnies.
I will try that Random.org drawing thingy again and pick two “lucky” winners on Saturday morning!
I have to go clean the house which will take me until Saturday due to all the dust from pulling up the tiles in the entrance and hallway. At least I do know how to dust!
Remember to sign up for my “real” giveaway!
Enjoy your day and hopefully this post has not tramatized everyone!
