I love thrift stores. There are a lot of thrift stores near where I live (I guess when you spend all your earnings on mortgage, you gotta be a little thrifty else where!) and I love getting stuff for little K and little A second hand. I often go when I need to relax and check out some books to read to little K. I’ve had some good luck of encountering some books that has sewing in the story and I’d like to share!
First one is Little Fox Goes to the End of the World:
little fox tells her mama how she will go to the end of the world while her mama sews an really awesome jacket for her. (The jacket is extremely cute too)
Second one is Something from Nothing:
Its a jewish folktale about how a grandpa refashions a baby blanket to a jacket, then a vest, then a tie, then a handkerchief, and then a button! To be honest it reminded me of all the resourceful mommies who makes stuff for their kids from worn adult clothing as well as those who refashions old clothing for themselves.
I love those books – little K loves the stories and I get to make her excited about sewing without her touching scissors and needles 🙂 Do you know any cute children’s book that involves sewing? If you do please share!!!
