Sewing club

I taught a sewing class to 3rd, 4th and 5th graders from Sept.  to Dec. I have done it before, but this sewing class was the hardest.  I had 15 kids, some stinkers, some did not want to be there and then there were the ones who were terrified of the sewing machine.  I am taking about crying, anxiety and panic attacks. Then there was the cutting of pins, jamming the machine, breaking needles (used 4 packages of needles) and missing scissors and seam rippers.
It made for a long semester. We made by hand- teddy bears, pin cushions, ornaments and pillows. On the sewing machine we made pillows and  draw string backpacks. Like the one above. They came out great. They are lined and the straps are glow in the dark. The one above will be going to the BH house.

Take care,

Quilting and Technology

What I am working on. It's not going good, I
really need more practice making quilts.

I am now able to post and add pictures of what I make for the BH kiddos and other sewing I do.  I got a Samsung tablet for Christmas. Still getting used to it, but at least I can take pictures and post. I hope. Technology and I don't get along.

Thanks to my daughter for figuring out how to log on to my blog. Now  I need her help taking pictures out of her ipod.

I will be back....

Take Care,
