I remember my first attempt at a sewing machine - Year 7 Home Economics. We practised following straight and curved lines on paper with the sewing machine. Just like in Kindergarten we had to stay in the lines in order to pass and get our 'Drivers Licence . Well on my final task I had an unfortunate accident. I was almost finished when I had to switch from stitching forward to doing a backward stitch. I stitched my finger in the process and had to be rushed off to a medical centre as the tip of the needle had broken off in the tip of my pointer finger! A tetanus shot, 4 needles to numb my finger and 5 stitches (in my finger) later I got my 'Drivers Licence'.
This was not going to be the case for Sunny! I couldn't stress enough how important it was to keep her fingers away from the needle!
How did she go?
(Yes! The sewing machine is a real one from Spotlight. It has a 2 stitch setting with a range of lengths... Perfect for a first machine.)
