I had four more girls take beginning sewing with me this week. The first day they learned the basics of the sewing machine and earned their 'Sewing Machine Driver's License'.
Natalie had taken a pillowcase class that her mom won at an auction , but we did not really cover the basics of the machine. She took this beginning class so in another week she could take the pillow camp with her friend Kara.

Andromeda was the first to finish her skirt and she was able to make another bag with some shortcuts I showed her. She found scraps of a jersey knit fabric to make the ties.

Caitlin finished up next. She opted to sew her four hole buttons with an X pattern on the back of her skirt. She then spent the rest of the class sewing a pillowcase that had already been pinned by another student.
|Kayla and her skirt|
Next up was Kayla. Look at the cool pattern that happened on the back of her skirt. She worked on choosing some fabrics for another pillowcase and started with some pinning.
|Natalie and her skirt|
Last but not least was Natalie. She had a fun mini heart print denim for her skirt which she jazzed up with some bright flower buttons.
The girls all sewed their buttons on the machine and were pretty amazed to be able to do so. Three days and they each finished 2 projects with big smiles. Next up is vacation and then one last camp, four days to sew four different pillows. Just one spot left if anyone is interested
