Another Week of Sewing Camp Begins!
Today we started our last week of sewing camp for the summer.
Students new to our sewing classes usually spend the first 15 minutes or so learning to work our sewing machines.
Once the students are comfortable on the machines, they start their projects.
Students who were here last week continue to work on things that they started previously.
This student saw a pillow that I had knit and she wants to make a fabric one just like it. Here she is drafting a pattern for her idea.
Everyone is working on something different. These students all get to choose whatever project they want. They then pick fabric and get started.
Except for Tux, who obviously needs rest and the yarn basket is the perfect place to take a nap!
Tux is never without someone paying attention to her and she loves it!
After break time we worked on creating some fun fabric which will be turned into pincushions.
Some students just use their imaginations when making projects. Here we have a couch and pillow.
This is so cute! The face is totally freehand.
This student decided to make something on her own. She created a pocket with a handle - how very creative and original!
This is also a student original! Pretty cute!
