I am having trouble posting pictures on blogger right now, and so...in an effort to continue posting...I would like to pass on this wonderful site
One Hour Craft
It has some lovely projects for kids and right now they have a tutorial on teaching children to sew, using a sewing machine. The tutorial is worth reading, as it has some wonderful advice (like sewing at first without the needle, and making a game out of it).
UPDATE: I was able to post my pics, and the result is the post below this one.
