Bobbins Sewing

My seven year old daughter asked how a sewing machine works. Any ideas on how to explain it to her?

I have a sewing machine, but it would be good to have a concept a seven year old could grasp.

I don't think you need a great deal of detail. Show her how the thread runs from the spool on top down thru all the different places to the needle. Then show her the bobbin and how that thread comes up. On a piece of fabric show her how the needle goes with the top thread down thru the fabric to catch the bottom thread and back up thru. I doubt if she wants a detailed account of the mechanics of the machine.
