Awesome students!

12 Jun

Today started bright and early with the cutting of fabric for pillow cases.


The kids get to pick their own fabric and learn how to use a pattern.


They get so excited when they find that “perfect” fabric for their project.


These kids come and get right to work.


Each day we take a mid-morning break.  The kids love to have their snack and sit and chat.


Here we are finishing up our batik squares of fabric.  Tomorrow we will be sewing them into pillows.

ImageThese two girls are putting the finishing touches on their batiks.  Their designs look great!


One of our youngest students learning how to control her machine.  She did so wonderfully!


These two were so excited to finally start their first machine sewn projects.  Here they have picked out their fabric for a sachet each and are learning to use a pattern, put right sides together and how to pin appropriately.


Of course, using an iron is a must!!  It’s also a life long skill :o)



Working, working, working…



Everyone was very busy creating.



The student in the foreground finished a reversible headband and is shown here working on cutting out fabric for a pillow case.  The student in the background finished up her sachet and is now working on a reversible headband.

IMG_3643This student finished her sachet and started a headband.

IMG_3644She finished her sachet and is bringing it home to hang in her room.

IMG_3645She is so happy!!  She sewed this on the machine all by herself, closed the opening used to stuff it and then sewed on the button.  The only assistance needed was help to tie one knot.  Impressive!

As you can see, all these students are so amazing!!  Only a few days sewing and look what they can create – such fast learners with such great imaginations :o)  I can’t wait to see what tomorrow will hold.
