Week 1: To expand  your sewing skills a lined drawstring bag will be made.  It is a fun and useful beginner project and will help you practice. You will continue to work on consistent seam allowances and fabric management.  You will also learn how to make  a casing to pull your drawstring through, how to make a lining for the bag and how to piece together the outside of the bag.


Week 2:  You want to start learning to sew! We will teach you how to make a pillow.  This is a great way to start learning!  In this class you will be making an 18" square pillow with a ruffle.  Techniques for this session include keeping a consistent seam allowance, basting, fabric management and gathering. 

Week 3: You've made it through two classes (drawstring bag, ruffle pillow) now you're not really a beginner, right?  You've got a few yards of stitching under your belt.  So, let's do something a little more challenging.  How about a Vintage Style Apron?  Yes, You can do it! You’ll make a fashionable and functional vintage style apron with sash ties and a pocket, ready to tackle any project! You will continue to work on consistent seam allowances and fabric management.
