Annie's sewing project

Lee here...on a snowy saturday Annie asked me to drag out the dusty sewing machine..she had seen some purple material in my stash and thought it would make a great Joker in the Joker from Batman. She literally worked on it all day...figuring out how to thread the machine with my help, and experimenting with different sizes for arms, way to attach the pieces etc. Please excuse the sideways photo!
Here is the finished project..the clothes were a little tricky but she made it work. The hair is green material sewn on. This was a real learning experience for her..she thought of other things she could have done...for next time:) She really has the brain of an artist. She can visualize something and make it happen..

The sewing machine is staying out for a while..we will have to do school work around it. I have some things I would like to make and I know this is a great creative outlet for Annie..and its nice to have it at the ready for when the inspiration hits!
