My mom taught me to sew when I was preteen - I think one of the fondest memories I have of sewing with her was in high school, when she made a dress for me to wear to a banquet.

Jan said...

My Mom taught me to crochet when I was about 7. She guaranteed herself a ready supply of potholders.

I fondly remember starting sewing with that plastic canvas and yarn

My mom doesn't sew or knit, but we did have a fun weekend of painting and wallpapering when she bought her current house.

I remember in the 80's when my mom used to sew her club clothes. Once she had a shiny metallic leather bustier (crazy, I know) and she helped me make a matching one for my Barbie!

Swedish Scrapper said...

I remember the sewing machine humming along at all hours from when I was about 5 or 6. When I was older, I got to help her clip apart and trim chains of potholders and baby bibs; more and more as I grew older, I was consulted about color and fabric choices for the things she created, and that made me feel proud and included indeed. I also designed one or two potholder appliqués too, as I recall.

SunnySewing said...

My fondest memory is of my mom sewing me the most awesome Halloween costume ever! I wanted a rainbow brite costume for so many years. She made this killer costume (wish I had the picture here). It had tons of rainbow colors and layers and it looked IDENTICAL to rainbow brite's outfit. I loved it so much that I still talk to her about it. (plus I got my daughter hooked on the show -- too bad the costume was lost in a flood, cry.)

When I was in junior high school my mom used to sew clothes for me and my sisters. I used to "help". Most items were made of polyester doubleknit fabric so I'm not sure if this is a good memory or not! Sadly my mom died before I started quilting -- I know she would have been my biggest fan!

eleyne said...

sewing halloween costumes with my mom - I had this set of blue-spotted pyjamas and one year she made me a hood and tail to go along.... I swear that she finally "lost" that set so that I would stop wearing them to school, the park, the zoo, walking the dog....

My mom is a sewist and she had a drapery making business when I was a kid. But I clearly remember making an outfit for a Girl Scout's badge. It was a skirt and sleeveless (I think) top. The fabric was a white ribbed knit (apparently my mom was feeling brave) with puffy teddy bears on it. Awesome.

My mom wasn't very crafty, but it was my grandmother who taught me how to crochet while we were on a 2 week road trip when I was 6. I think she had an endless supply of yarn!

Corine said...

My mom thaught me how to sew when I was 12 years old. I practised a lot by making clothes for my barbie!

My mom gave me my sewing machine and some sewing lesson while I was pregnant with my first child. And I never stop since that! What a wonderfull gift! :)

robin said...

I remember my mom teaching me the very basic basics of knitting when I was maybe 12 or 13. Breast cancer took her when I was 17.

We are the Roosters said...

Like some girls, I saw my mom sewing for years before I ever expressed any interest whatsoever. My favorite sewing memory has to be when I decided to make a baby quilt for a friend and told my mom I would like her to teach me. She was so excited and, in turn, so was I. We whipped up that baby quilt together and I've never looked back, except to say that I wished I had started sooner.

Happy Mother's Day!

My mum is a seamstress but as a child I had very little interest until I hit teenage years and suddenly discovered fashion! I used to draw up designs and get my mum to make them. Years of watching her really helped when I went off to Uni to study fashion and textiles.

My fondest memory is feeling the floor rumbling as my mother sewed into the early morning in her sewing room right under my bedroom. Who knew I had actually caught the bug from her all these years later.

Ana e os Viraventos said...

My mom taught me to sew in a time I didn't want to learn how to sew. During one summer vacation my mother "made me" sew a pajama. The truth is I did it and now, 20 yards later I am glad I did. Nowadays I sew with the same machine, my mother gently gave it to me when my interest in sewing re-borned last year.

Mama and I were always making things together...she was very creative, and a wonderful artist. I think my fondest memory, though, is the year that my oldest girls were starting first grade and kindergarten, and the budget was tight. She drug out all her boxes of fabric, and we spent a whole week of her helping me sew them adorable little skirts, blouses and jumpers, even with matching fabric hair bows. My mother was AWESOME!!

My mom would take me to Northwest Fabrics in Ankeny, Ia to look at patterns and fabric. She used to make a lot of my clothes when I was a little girl. I am the last of 6 kids, 4 of which are girls, and she taught all of us girls to sew! It is something that we all have in common to this day. We miss my mother and she would love to know that we are all still sewing and quilting.

Ellie Roberts said...

My fondest memory is the clothes my mom used to make for my as a child. I look back on the pictures and now being a sewer myself realize the work, effort, and love it took to make them. Love you Mom!

When i was about 5, my mom made me a purple flouncy dress. I remember watching her sew it, having her try it on my several times (and only pinning me once!), and eventually I got to wear it. I wanted to wear it every day after that! I still have that dress, hanging in my closet.

Anna said...

I remember when I was about 7 my mum made me a grey plaid woollen dressing gown. It buttoned up and she had beautifully piped all the seams with red interlock so that they didn't scratch. I was so proud of all that piping on the inside! And I remember clearly how lovely the red looked with the grey. It was yoked and the buttons were big. My mother was always unpredictable and difficult to live with due to mental illness, but I appreciate a special memory like this because it shows how she did love me, even though I often felt like she didn't.

heartsease54 said...

My fondest memory is of picking out patterns & fabrics for all of our high school formals, (me & my sister). All of our formals did double duty as we were also in Rainbow Girls and used the formals for those occasions too.

When I was about four, I made a little figure out of junk I'd taped together. I took it to my mom and asked her to "Make a Santa suit for my Santa." The next morning when I got up, she'd outfitted this thing with a red felt coat and pants, with white trim and a black belt. It was about three inches high. I still have it, and I still don't know how she managed to do it.

Kristy said...

It wasn't funny at the time, but while at a mother daughter sewing class, when I was 7, my mom traded me to another mother. I ended up using an entire spool of thread on a tiny tube skirt and swore of ever touching a sewing machine! Which explains why my mom about fell of her chair when, at 19, I asked her to help me make a quilt for my best friend's wedding gift. I've been quilting ever since and have taught my mom how to quilt. You just won't find me constructing garments....I leave that to mom!

Unfortunately the last time I sewed with my mother it was during my middle school home ec class. We made beanbags (for homeless people...yeah...still doesn't make sense to me 20 years later) and I couldn't finish mine in class and had to take it home. It was a weekend full of tears (on my part) and frustration (on my mothers). Now we both sew, but separately. Wish I could sew with her, but she lives too far away!

Now, we just have a grand time finding projects and sending pictures of our creations to each other (and we both are glad we don't have to impress a judge!).

My mom helped me rip all of the seams out of a blouse I was trying to make when I was in 8th grade and then she helped me read the pattern correctly to put it all back together again.

I did more sewing with my Grandmother than with my Mom but I will always remember how patient she was ripping all of those seams out. I hate seam ripping to this day but luckily I have a daughter who volunteers to do it for me whenever she sees I'm ripping seams apart. :D

scottylover said...

Wow that was a loooonnngggg time ago! :) Mom was left handed, so it was hard for me to learn from her. I do remember one Girl Scout project that was a stamped cross stitch of lemons that had "When life gives you lemons, make lemonade" on it. We used yarn instead of embroidery thread, so Mom helped me figure out which direction the "X" should go and taught me how to do the stem stitch. Don't know where it is now, and don't even remember if I finished it! :P

Thanks for the memory!

Mom was not a crafter at all. Barely remember her sewing on buttons. But lve her just the same!

My Mother was not a sewer, crafter or designer as she was busy raising us nine children. I do remember receiving a whole shoebox of clothes for my babydoll for Christmas one year that were designed and sewn by my Maternal Grandmother though. I still have a few of them and she was amazing.
