Starting a Children sewing club

I was very excited to start running a new after school club: Teaching children how to re-purpose clothes is -for me- my way of leaving behind a certain legacy: helping fixing the mess that my generation and the one before me have made.

Here are some examples of the projects that we made together. The Children have as much to teach me as I have to teach them. Their creativity is endless! I love it!

We started with making our sewing folders with a box of cereals, scraps of fabric and a bit of wool.
We put our instructions for each projects and keep our patterns in them. We can take them home to re-create the projects for friends and family.

We made our sewing bags. We used a pillow case and a bit of garden rope…and some ribbons and buttons! We keep all our bits and bobs in it, ready for the following week.
