Tweens Sew!

I had my older granddaughters come over to sew maxi skirts.  A couple of them wanted maxi skirts for Easter, but were over ruled.   These were super easy for them to do- we used this blog and drafted a pattern.  I want them to be able to read and use patterns.  Then we pinned it on 

 and they cut it out.  

 It’s so nice that they have developed the skills to cut and sew. 

I hang around, trying to figure out what I want to organize the fabric that keeps multiplying.  I forgot to get a pic of Jocie cutting or sewing, because we were watching “Dance Moms”,  but I got her modeling her skirt. 

They go together so easily, and the girls learned to put in a stretchy waistband.  This project just takes maybe an hour start to finish.

PS—Don’t use striped material for a 9 year old to sew—it takes forever to match the stripes! 

A few days later, my niece came over to sew her skirt… It really does take an hour!  And I bought another bin and some more comic book boards to finally finish organizing my fabric.  More on that later!
