I think it would probably be much more practical to sew clothes, but I tried that when I was a teenager and it was always a horrible disaster. And besides it is much more fun to sew things like dolls and dinosaur tails. I had intended to make this for my favorite 4-year-old's birthday (admittedly, I don't know a lot of 4-year-olds so it is easy to be my favorite). But, as usual, I didn't get around to it for a couple of months.
I presented it to him yesterday along with a pretty cool little dinosaur book that I picked up at Tuesday Morning (have you ever checked out the books there?). I think it was a hit!
