More Fun Sewing Projects!

1 May

We have been having such a good time and working on so many great projects lately in our sewing classes.

Lately, our 3rd graders only want to work on tiny, palm held, felt animals.  These can actually be quite hard to put together – the pieces are super tiny and have to be hand sewn carefully.

The exact opposite of those tiny projects is this summer robe.  This student is doing a fabulous job of putting together her robe – she is quite a bit farther along than this photo shows – she has inset both her sleeves and sewn up the underarm seam.  Not much longer now and she will be totally complete.  WOOHOO!

When our students need to do any hand sewing, you can most often find them out on the front patio enjoying the weather and friendship.
