This is a three session sewing group for ages 8-11. Sewing ability can range from no sewing experience to basic skills. Students will learn the following while working on a simple project during each class:
- The basics of using a sewing machine
- How to iron as part of the sewing process.
- How to cut and work with fabric, add embellishment or sew a button
This session we will be sewing cloud pillows! The first class will be spent on getting to know the sewing machine: How does it work? The second and third class will be spent on ‘one of a kind’ cloud pillow creations. This is an opportunity to be creative and have fun while learning to sew!
Materials required will depend on the project.
- 1 yard each of two different quilting cottons (washed), plus matching thread.
- Tools and notions will be provided in class however if you have a sewing kit you are welcome to bring it along. You can also purchase a JP Knit & Stitch sewing kit.
- Sewing machines are provided, but students may bring their own if they prefer.
- In addition to the fabric please also purchase some felt pieces that can be cut up to make embellishments such as faces, hearts/flowers/sun, anything they would like to sew onto the front of the pillow.
- Stuffing or filling for the inside of the pillow
