Aisha's First Craft Book

I found this book at MPH on our weekly bookstore trip. My girls love bookstore trips coz I usually allow them to choose 1 or 2 books to bring home. I set aside quite a large sum monthly for books as I think instilling book loving culture in my children is top priority. So, when Aisha saw this book she immediately flipped through it and I could see that familiar awe on her face...that inspired look...I could never not buy this one for her. There is no author but the book is published by Parragon UK and costs only RM29.90.

Inside, loads of goodies! There is a Sewing Kit Envelope with ribbons, embroidery thread, felt squares & mini sewing kit. There are also many pages of useful how to's such as color picker & applique techniques.

And loads of cute projects! Aisha is almost 10 yo now, and she's lovin' all the creativity on display.

So which project you want to make first? I asked her.
The easiest one, mommy, she said.

She pointed to this one. I thought oh okay my girl is growing up she wants to keep mom & dad out of her room now *sniff* but I encouraged her anyway..go ahead dear take whatever you need from mommy's studio to make the project...

And the result?

She actually made it to hang on my sewing studio doorknob! heart just melted when I saw it this morning...the sewing will improve with lots of practice, but the fact that she shows interest and determination and inspired to sew plus actually completed a project, is a great achievement already. This is one of the moments that make me think how wonderful motherhood is. I'm a proud momma! :)


  1. mana tumpahnya kalo tak ke nasi?
