Sweet Teen's Chicken Scratch & Sewing

One day "Sweet Teen" wanted to learn chicken scratch. 
Since I am just a beginner myself it thrilled me that she wanted to learn from me!

Here she is working all on her own.

She did 2 projects in one afternoon. 
I love it when my Grands ask me to teach them things.

This is her first project that she finished.

Excuse the marks on it. 
We forgot to rinse them off!!!
Isn't it pretty though?
(even with those marks)!

She picked this one out of the book to do.
She loves kitty's!

Since I took this picture of this finished project
she has added some white filling stitches.
It is just beautiful.

Remember a couple of months ago when
Sweet Teen had a school project and
we made some pajama pants?

Here they are all finished!
She finished them herself. 
And look at this!!! She made her own pattern!
She was going to get a tank top and applique a
butterfly or heart on the front but her teacher
wanted something that she had sewn herself.

I was so impressed that she did that top all on her own!

Do you think I am a proud Gran???
I am!
We have 4 and one on the way!
TODAY I AM THANKFUL FOR.......Grands that love me!

A Hundred years From Now will not matter what my bank account was, the sort of house I lived in, or the kind of car I drove...but the world may be different because I was important in the life of a CHILD!

Very cute pajamas and I love the kitty stitchery. Looks like you two have a lot in common and have a great time together.

LOVE those pajamas with the top she designed and made herself!!! WOW!!! She is one talented gal. I'd not heard of "chicken scratch". What, exactly, is it? I can see the resulting projects but am just curious why it's called chicken scratch. The projects are cute!

Val how wonderful...Sweet Teen is certainly taking after you and Granny (and gramps) with her love of sewing.

She did a fantastic job on the pajama set.

OMGoodness. The pj set is gorgeous. She is to be commended. So much talent.
I too would like to know more about "Chicken Scratch".

Granny said...

Sweet Teen certainly takes after her Granny in that she will try anything new. The pajamas are adorable.

The pajamas look perfect and I'll bet she earned an A on the project.
