Crafty Gemini mini-me?!

Today I thought I would post a video that definitely made my week!  One of my friends loves to cook, bake and do all kinds of crafts with her kids and apparently they enjoy watching my video tutorials, too.

So, the other day her 4-year old daughter, Elliana, sneaks away to her room with some fabric.  Her mom goes to check on her 5 minutes later because she was awfully quiet and it turns out she was working on my latest tutorial- How To Make Picnic Placemats for Summer! Too cute!

She then asks her mom to video her teaching how to do it just like I do.  I love it!  My own Crafty Gemini mini-me!  She even tries to mimic what I say in my tutorials!  You all have to see this! Isn’t she just the cutest?!

She definitely has a future on YouTube!

    What a darling little girl. She has obviously been watching not only you, but her mother as well. She has such an eye for detail that most young children don’t have. It is great that even at such a young age, she is developing a love for fabric and sewing. Priceless !

    Thanks everyone! We think she is pretty special!!!! (mom of 4 year old) Although we craft and sew often, she was deeply moved and motivated by Vanessa and her napkin tutorial. I am so blessed to have such positive role models in my children’s lives. Way to go Vanessa, keep inspiring the world to sew!

    Wow, learned alot from that video, so darling! I learned NOT to lay out my fabric and batting on a quilt LOL…
    What would be a good idea for the pocket Vanessa, if you could somehow make an applique for the spoon, fork and knife to be placed on the pocket sections…just a suggestion.
    Take care and hope to see some more great videos..oh and btw I have already cut out four sets of the top for my placemats, next will be the backing, batting and pocket..working slowly hoping for those appliques!
