I set out to sew a warm beautiful robe for a young man. The young man just happens to be my wonderful grandson, Michael.
My wish is to sew something that he could enjoy on Christmas morning and hopefully a lot of cool mornings after Christmas. Sometimes it is hard to make something that a child enjoys but Michael is an easy child. He loves almost everything but its hard to keep his clothes on him at this stage of his young life.
My grandson, Michael loves John Deere. In my mind, there is nothing better than a John Deere Car seat organizer. I made the car seat cover to protect the back of the car seat from Michael’s shoes, while keeping Michael’s toys and books organized in the car.
I have not yet developed superior sewing skills but I enjoy the simple projects. I am trying to motivate myself to practice sewing, so my skills improve. Do you understand this feeling? Maybe you don’t have enough time for large scale sewing because you are just too busy. I know the feeling.
