First Sewing Projects Completed
One by one the young 4-Hers are finishing up there very first sewing projects' Talk about excitement! One little one, Josie, wanted her picture taken immediately outside by the barn. Um - we will have to wait until warmer weather arrives because your coat will be covering your pretty little dress!
SEW we improvised using a palm tree.
Josie was SEW proud of her new dress that she danced around for more than an hour. prancing and modeling it for anyone who just happened to pass by. This is Josie's very first sewing project; she picked out her own fabrics and trims making a simple peasant style dress with two pattern pieces. Josie added a fun gingham trim with elastic inserted to draw up the neck edge and tied a pink satin bow around the waist for shaping. If Josie is anything like her sisters, she will wear this dress for several years and later use it as a nightshirt. Great job, Josie!
And just as we were ready to leave, Ava's fun personality had her dancing around the room wearing her first sewing project: pull on pants! She was SEW excited that she wanted to wear her new flannel pants home to show her whole family. Ava was also looking forward to using the rest of the fabric to make herself a matching pillow case and pajama bag. She will be ready for camping and sleep overs by tossing everything in her new matching bag.
Claire also finished up her new pajama pants made in a cotton fabric. She was very careful to keep the elephants that were printed on her fabric all standing on their feet and not on their backs. Great job! Claire is making a couple of matching bags that will hold her personal items when she needs to take them on road trips. The bags will keep her well organized. Well done, Claire!
These girls are only part of a larger group of young seamstress all who are working on different projects, each one challenging. The best part of helping them is that they WANT to learn and can't wait to start up their next project. SEW rewarding!
SEW do you remember what your very first sewing project was?
