First sewing project for sewing camp!

25 Mar

The very first thing we do in sewing camp is talk about safety.  One of those safety items is always knowing where your needle is.  SOoooo…..the first project is a little needle book.  If you are not using your needles, it should be stored safely in your book.

We start with a piece of felt – the kids learn how to trace a simple pattern.

Next they get to choose a button for the closure.

Sometimes, that can be a challenge!

I have a pretty big box filled to capacity with all kids of great buttons!

But in the end, they will find the perfect button for their needle book

After attaching their button and some fun embellishment, they have a lovely needle book that is perfect for them!!
