Tell me a little bit about yourself.
I am 5 and I am the oldest in my family. I go to school and I like it. I like to do the Roman Arch and Decanomial Square.
Our family used to have a fish. It was my sisters but it died, but I still have my four chickens.
I like to jump on my trampoline. I am going to start my own website called Trampoline Tricks.
I like to do lots and lots of sewing.
When did you first start to sew?
Well, I started sewing when my Mum got very interested in sewing. I was four and a half.
Who taught you to sew?
My Mum, my Granny, my Auntie Cara and my school teachers Karen and Robyn.
Do you enjoy other crafts?
I like to make things out of paper and cardboard. My Ganny and Papa gave me a weaving loom for Christmas and I am making myself a headband with it.
What sewing projects have you done?
I really liked making my sewing bag at school and my embroidered T shirt. I am looking forward to doing some huckaback and an embroidered pillow.
I like sewing with felt. I have made a pocket locket and sunglasses cases for my Dad and Grandparents and I am planning to make one for my Mum.
Have you ever sewn using a machine?
Yes, but I need my Mum to watch me.
Can you recommend any sewing books for children your age?
I like to read my book Made by Me and D.I.Y. Kids. I have also enjoyed reading The Mary Frances Sewing Book with my Mum and Dad.
I saw one in my Made by Me book. Here are some pictures of the one I made:
I chose the buttons from my Mum's button jar and sewed them around the neck to look like a necklace.
I used a water soluble marker to draw on my designs and then stitched them with running stitch.
I used an embroidery hoop to keep my stitches neat.
I enjoyed this project so much I plan to give my friends embroidered T shirt kits for their birthday presents so they can make them for themselves.
Well, I would like to thank Madeleine for sharing her sewing ideas with us today. I know I would be very happy to feature any of her future projects on this blog!
