One Saturday, D2 came to me looking for something to do. He has a short list of standard requests, but that day, he wanted "something I don't usually do." I suggested a sewing project. It only took him a minute to remember one he'd planned to do some time ago: a bed for Pengui.
D2 chose some material, and started with a pillow.
A very small pillow, even for Pengui.
Then he moved on to the mattress. He planned, measured, cut, sewed, turned, stuffed, and stitched it all closed with minimal help.
Pengui soon passed the bed onto a smaller member of the menagerie, but it was definitely a sewing success for D2!
