Today is the first day of the school holidays. Have a look at today’s sewing machine class. They made a winter beanie from scratch. Kids learned how to make a pattern, sew a curve and embellish with flowers and funny monsters. So cute! Come back tomorrow and check out the scrapbook/journal they are making.
The kids learned how to use the sewing machine yesterday. It took a while before they got the hang of sewing as straight as possible but they got it in the end. I gave them extra felt to embellish the back of the bag which I purposely left blank so that they can personalize it. […]
