Teaching kids how to sew buttons
I keep trying to teach DSD basic sewing and knitting skills and some stick better than others.
When I was sewing a couple of loose buttons on Ed’s shirt I thought I’d show her how to do a button too – and it was a success!
Not only is it fairly easy to teach, the result gives a real sense of achievement. When I told her we might need that button one day if her dad ever lost a button on his jacket (the one I gave her is his spare) she¬†shrieked¬†”but then you’d be using my first ever button!” Right. So let’s hope Ed doesn’t lose a button, then!
