Jasmine's First Sewing Session

We had our first sewing session yesterday. We learned all the parts of the sewing machine. And basic sewing tools.

First I took the needle out and she practiced pushing the pedal. Once she got the hang of that, her first assignment was to sew straight lines on a piece of paper. We started out with white thread because it was already in the machine. It was hard to see with the white thread on the white paper so I chose red thread so she could see what she was doing.

She didn't do so badly the first few times. Then all of a sudden she had a hard time following the lines and was very quicly discouraged. We stopped and I prayed that she would be more patient. I explained to her that if sewing was that easy we wouldn't need to practice before she got started on her first real project. She agreed and immediately her disposition changed.
She did not finish all the lines on the page. She said she was ready for a "break", which means she had enough for one day. :-)
We will finish the lines in the next session.
