When I picked her up from the class she asked, "Can we put pictures up on your blog?" Of course! Even from the perspective of a novice seamstress, I thought that this was a fabulous idea for a first project. It is a useful object, that the kids can use even if they ultimately decide that sewing is not for them.
First they traced and cut the fabric. Then they did the seams in a particular order (top and bottom, sides, and on a bias), each step talking about how sewing along the fabric in different directions is be different. The casings on the bias was left for last as the most challenging part. Then ribbon was fed through the casings, and it was done! Her first ever sewing project. See how proud the young seamstress looks?
After this apron the kids are free to choose whatever they want for a next project. I am already hearing plans for a fleece blanket.
