I see it over and over again. When kids learn to sew, they much more than how to thread a machine and put stitches to fabric. They learn how to “figure things out”. They make something real with their own hands, and sometimes too, design something using their own creative energy.
Last week a couple of little gals finished up the projects they had been working on for a few sessions; an apron and a tote bag. The apron was a joint design collaboration between S. and I, and the tote bag was a darling design by Ren Murphy for SewMcCool. Both are cute, teach some important skills, and are fun and achievable for beginning sewists.
These two have know each other almost forever, and there is plenty of giggling and visiting that happens too.
Posers! An apron ready to tackle a batch of cookies and a tote bag ready to haul some books and snacks!
Did you see the three colors I picked for my tote bag?
Love this shot! Thanks S and N, and see you next week!!
