One new found activity that my 7 year old and I enjoy –
is combing the thrift stores for clothes items that can be
turned into quilts or covers. She cuts the items into “pieces”. Since it will be a true crazy quilt, the size and shape doesn’t really matter. We don’t know how to quilt, so making mistakes is perfectly fine since we can take the who cares approach. She’s learning to sew and launder, and we have quality time together. Maybe she’ll end up with some priceless throw, albeit sentimental only,
to share with her kids. In the end, we’ve spent little, had alot of fun and came away with a useful item.
