Alyssa and a Handcrank

As a lot of you know, I've been teaching my 6 year-old daughter to sew.  I originally had been teaching her on my Morse and New Home electric machines.  When I purchased my first handcrank and let her give it a whirl, that's the ONLY machine she works on!  My husband purchased another handcrank for Christmas for me and Alyssa replied, "that's great!  Now, you have one to work on!"


She made a fabric ornament for her teacher, all by herself!  This weekend she made her first patchwork project, a pillowcase!

Keep creating, Alyssa!



Lovely!! Great Job. we've got a budding Sistah Quilter. I am sure your teacher will be proud.

Looks like Alyssa's got talent; takes after her mom! Can't wait to see more creations from the little cutie.

I love how proud she is of her pillowcase!! Great job!! How awesome that she enjoys sewing!!

I love your handcrank. I've wanted a treadle machine for a while, but have no space for it. I never even thought of getting a handcrank. It would take up less space and let me sew when the power goes out (which rarely happens here, but hey, you never know!! lol!). Yours is a beautiful machine and looks like it's in great shape!
