Girl Scout Sewing Workshop

2 Mar

A little while ago, I led a Girl Scout Sewing Workshop that was tons of fun!  I had to come up with an idea that they could complete in one session so I created the Lined Book Bag (click on the link to go to the tutorial).  There were 12 girls who came to our workshop – only one of those knew how to sew.

The first order of business was to show the girls how to use the machines.  Then they practiced on scrap pieces of fabric until they got the hang of sewing a straight line.  This usually only takes about 20 minutes.

After picking their fabric for the bags, they got started right away.  Then they were off an running!

The girls also learned to use an iron safely – a very important skill to have!
