Grandson learns to sew!

Today my grandson and I were both not feeling well. He and I were both home, and to keep him occupied, and to teach him a new skill, I taught him a basic stitch. We drew out our design, which was to be a pumpkin, but he thought it looked more like an apple, so he chose red. I think it turned out so cute. I helped by sewing it onto fabric, then making it into a little 5x5 pillow. When we got all finished, he asked "Do you think I  can sleep with my head on it"?  I looked at him and answered "...well, maybe an ear"!!!  We both had a good laugh! He really loved making something out of nothing, and deciding what design to make. I might have a new sewing buddy. YES!!!
