2017 SUMMER SEWING PROJECTS: These are just a few of the projects they will be making! This year the children will do all the work themselves. From prepping their fabrics, cutting them and using all the tools needed to finish their projects. We want them to be able to repeat this at home if they needed too. Little seamstresses coming right up! Join us for a great summer sewing camp. The kids will be making these cute pillows for their rooms. They can choose from the "WOOF" or "MEOW" pillows. These are just samples and are not completed. The student will learn to cut all fabrics for the pillows background, trace and cut fabric for letters and learn to applique the letters to the fabric. They will also learn to make a pillow and work with heat and bond. Teacher's Tea Towel. What a great start to camp with this towel. The idea behind this project is to work on mastering measuring tools in the sewing world while transferring lines unto the towels, calculating measurements and perfecting straight lines on the machine. The red line will be hand embroidery stitching. Each child will also get a sweet card for their teach to gift this thoughtful gift to their teacher on their first day of school. Let's start school with a generous heart.
Summer Fishing Bag: Pure cuteness. The idea behind this sewing project is to learn how to trace a pattern, cut the fabric with curves and master sewing curves. The student will also work on handstitching buttons and working with ropes and using tools to make each task easier.
Jersey Knit Heabands: Let's introduce a challenging fabric to cut and sew. Jersey likes to slip and travel on you so the student will have a chance to work with a new product and at the same time make something they can wear. These headbands are just inspirations. We can make them a million different ways.
