WoodClinic Sewing Machines




My daughter is like my shadow. She wants to do everything that I do, exactly as I do it. Imitation is the greatest form of flattery.. It melts my heart when she sits next to me and tries to crochet. She's almost 3, mind you. So her form of crochet is just winding the yarn around the hook and making a massive mess. The ball is literally useless when she's done with it. But I allow this because it makes her happy and helps her creativity grow.

She also wants to learn to sew, because mommy does it. I often find her sitting in front of my sewing machine with a piece of scrap material.. (haha) She just slides the material back and forth under the needle. Dangerous, Yes! So now I have to unplug the machine and remove the needle when it's not in use.

...On to my point...

I've been wanting to find a machine that she can safely play with and feel like she is a big girl. Every machine I've found that was meant for a child has a needle! Usually these machines are recommended for a 6+yr.. But my little princess doesn't want to wait 3 more years!


But look what I found on Etsy!!













These were made by WoodClinic

"Products are made from reclaimed wood from local mills. All products are stained with natural oil with no chemicals. Peanut free and Kosher...waldorfian...just so great for your life."


How fantastic are these!?!

I'm trying to figure out where to put it if I bought one.. hmmm..

  6. Those are so cool, I would have loved one as little girl.


    As it is, I remember sitting next to my mom fascinated, watching her knit Irish Fisherman's sweaters and playing with the balls of yarn.
