Even though there are only 4 new "sewists" pictured, there were actually five girls as you will surmise from the pictures of their completed projects. The classroom was filled with joy for 5 days from 10am until 2pm each day. They were learning, sharing, designing, forging new friendships & laughing. It was such a pleasure to be able to hear how much fun they were having! And, boy were they productive.
They began with pillowcases as that is our proverbial "first project" - look at the wonderful prints and colors that they chose! I love them all! Their second project I believe was a tote bag, but unfortunately our picture turned out a bit blurry.
They also made the cutest ever headbands which they all embellished with beads and sequins thus practicing some hand stitching!
Some of the girls made more than one; some for friends, some for relatives ~ so sweet!
To the left here are their little zip up bags that are perfect for anything small: pens & pencils, hair accessories, trinkets etc.
I am not sure if I have left out any of their projects, but their final one was a skirt which they all finished and modeled as you can see in the first photograph above. Don't they look confident and proud!
I do hope that they will continue to learn to sew over the summer and that they will all attend the intermediate session which will be in August. See y'all soon!
