When our daughter celebrated her 4th birthday a few weeks ago, she received some lovely gifts from her friends. One of the presents was a little sewing kit to make your own rag doll. When I first saw the package, alarm bells started to ring. I thought she was way too young for such an activity. Needles, scissors and tiny parts… However, on closer inspection I saw that the needle was quite big and made out of plastic, the wool was already cut, there were guided sewing holes and the tiny parts were stickers used as decoration for the doll’s dress.
Our little girl was adamant that she wanted to start the dolly straight away so I gave in and we sat down to work on the doll. I was convinced she would loose interest pretty quickly, but no! After I showed her what to do, she worked it out pretty quickly and happily started to sew her own little rag doll. There were also a few tricky parts that I finished off for her, but I am still amazed by her handiwork.
