Jessilyn's First Sewing Project

I was making some curtains for our room last week, and Jessilyn kept begging me to sew. I asked her what she wanted to make, and since it was Easter week, she decided she wanted to sew a cross. I helped her line up the needle, explained how to keep it straight, and showed her how to turn corners with the stitches. I kept helping her until she told me, "Mom, you just have to show me one time, then I can do it by myself!" So I backed off and let her go all on her own. She did great! She only went off the material one time, and her stitches were pretty straight. I wish I had used a contrasting thread color so you could see it better (you can click on the pic to zoom in), but here is the finished product.
