Freestyle Sewing

Leia asks to sew every day she's here. 
We always go over sewing safety, then I turn her loose to sew whatever she wants. She usually plays around with the different stitches on my (gulp) good machine, sewing straight lines on fabric from her own bag of scraps.
But this time she branched out, making blankets for the beanie babies she and Leanne got from Mickey D's.
Don't you love how baby elephant is tucked so cozily into the Ark?
And the second best part of all this? Right after watching a budding quilter-in-the-making? The girls worked together on this for over an hour without bickering. It's a sewing day miracle!
