Sewing Class

6 Dec

Sewing classes at Let’s Go Crafting are always amazing because our students are amazing.  The things that they create and think up are so fabulous!

Working with knit fabric is not an easy thing to do, but this 5th grader is making great progress.

Once this student saw his classmate making some shorts, he knew he also needed a pair!

These students are working together on their projects.  They are all at a point where there is some hand sewing and it’s just so much more fun to do this and chat at the same time.

Another letter pillow for this student.  She is making her name in pillows and says she wants to hang them on her wall.  Hopefully she’ll let me take a picture of all of them when they are hung – I’m sure that will be a focal point of her room!

November Knitting

4 Dec

Our last class in November was a complete hoot!  Everyone had so much fun!

Spool Knitting

Spool Knitting

More spool knitting.

More spool knitting.

We had lots of spool knitting.  I remember enjoying this so much as a kid, but was unsure of how it would be received by my students.  Well, I should not have been worried, they love it!  I can’t wait to show them some of the animals that I have created with spool knitted strings!

Bear leg.

We had the completion of a stuffed bear leg and also the start of the torso – this student is well on her way to having a finished project!

Scarf start.

This student wanted to try something a little different – she chose to knit a scarf with sock yarn and US#1 needles.  Boy is she brave!!  I love knitting on the smaller needles with fine yarn, but it does take a bit longer than if larger needles and yarn were being used.  It sure is pretty though!

Finger weaving.

We also had finger weaving.

My daughter showed up and was immediately put to work by this student.  This student is making a finger weave scarf and wanted to know if it was long enough so she asked my daughter to model it to check length.  Looks good to me!

More crochet.

More crochet.

This student is really good at knitting and wanted to learn crochet.  You know her from her crocheted shoe laces from last time, well she is now making a hair tie to learn sc and practice the tension on her chain stitches.  She is doing a great job!

MORE finger weaving.

The scarf in one of the previous pictures, can double as a jumprope!

Did you know you can finger weave off of both ends of the ball of yarn??  Neither did I!!
