My son loves to watch me sew. I think it's so neat how patient a 2 year old can be when he's really into something.
Here's a helpful sewing tip:
Put a container, I use a sour cream cup, wherever you are sewing/cutting to put all your trash in (loose threads, bits of fabric). That way you keep your space clean and don't have to keep running to the trash can. I have one near my machines and one on my ironing board. Then teach your toddler to empty them in the trash!
Do you see how the iron's cord is wrapped around the doorknob? That is in case Ethan runs into the ironing board and the iron falls it will not fall off the board onto his head!
