Sewing Class Today!

Usually it is an art class and my friend, who teaches it, was thinking Monet?, Degas?  But then she thought, ok, if the world ends tomorrow and we get left behind, is all the knowledge of the Impressionists going to matter?  Perhaps, something more practical, she thought.  And so, today's class.
She got the idea from Studio Five.  Recycled Mittens!  Kind of a misnomer, as it is old wool sweaters that are getting recycled into fleece with which to make the mittens.  Leiko brought an old fleece jacket to work with for material and off they went, cutting out the pattern.

Next, they took turns at the sewing machine.  This is a really great project for those of us who don't really like involved projects. :)
There is a video of the process here.  I tried to embed it but I couldn't, sorry.


  
 

These are only the mock up's so they are have unfinished edges and such, but now that we know how to do them we are good to go!  Off to the attic to find some old wool sweaters and fleece stuff to play with.

They also have a nice book for boys, which Evan is using. They used to sell kits for the projects which was nice, too, but not anymore.
Great job on the project.
