There were a plethora of these little sewing machines in different themes for $12. I picked out a Lalaloopsy one and planned a little intro to sewing gift. This gift must have meant to be for little Kylee, as everything else I bought to accompany the sewing machine -- including the square box that fit folded fat quarters perfectly -- was on sale.
I only spent another $9 on everything shown here minus the buttons and measuring tape which were from my extensive and barely used stash. The pincushion was marked $4.99, but came up $1.49! There were lots of cute ones, like a little owl and a Dachshund.
To complete the gift, I printed out a few items from Skip to My Lou's Get Kids Sewing series -- including some sewing sheets (you sew on the paper itself) and a couple of beginner sewing projects. Everything came out sew sew cute, if I do say so myself.
