I had picked an easy little project but Paige wanted to make something for her mom's birthday so we settled on the apron in Bend the Rules Sewing. Paige picked out the fabric at Jo-Anns--with a little guidance (as in, I persuaded her that the sparkly pink fabric wasn't the best choice). We had enough fabric to make two aprons so I cut a smaller one for Paige and I used it to model the steps for Paige to sew on her mom's apron..
She did great! She only lost steam toward the end of the project after about two hours of work which I think is pretty good for a 9 year old. And the aprons turned out cute!
