HOWEVER, don't be fooled (like me!) and buy the children's needles that also are stocked right next to the canvases because they don't actually fit through the holes on the plastic! So frustrating! Luckily I had a fairly blunt regular needle (a tapestry needle--not that I've ever sewed a tapestry) in my supplies that she was able to use.
Be sure to check the thrift stores, too! My St. Vincent de Paul had this bag of square canvases for less than a dollar! They had a bunch of other ones, too.
She was thrilled and got the hang of it right away. I threaded the needle (because the yarn really was too big for the eye of the needles I have) and tied a knot on the end of the yarn, and that was it!
She was so excited to be "sewing like Mama!!"
I had to kick her out of the house and make her go play outside--she wanted to stay inside and sew her little heart out!
The proud little seamstress with her first sewing project. I'm keeping it forever! She now is hard at work on a creation of her own design--alternating pink and purple rows on a square canvas.
