Finishing Up 2013 With a Needle and Thread!

Cooperative Extension and the local Home Schooled students just completed their semester of Sewing and So-On 4H Youth. They learned many basic sewing skills in addition to the proper operation of a home sewing machine! Their projects have been highlighted on this blog. The last week was used making Christmas gifts. A fun little alligator sewing kit was completed- complete with the googly eyes! This was a perfect little gift for a teacher or someone who could use a little travel sized sewing kit. You never know when a little safety pin or a needle and thread will prove to be be very handy!
We are looking forward to the new year and learning more about the fun world of sewing!
Learning to use a commercial pattern will be the first order of business in the new year. We will choose a quick and easy pattern which will enable the students to finish their garment before they outgrow it!
