See what we made today?

This is an Easter version of the Halloween and Christmas bags made by other students. Don’t you just love the bunny appliqué? The student placed her bunny exactly where she wanted it. Thread painting/decorative stitching some Easter grass would have been cute, too! No time for that today in our busy 90 minute session.

This stitchy ‘tween learned how to do raw edge appliqué. She chose her design and traced the image onto Wonder Under using a lightbox. Then, she determined placement of her design, zigzagged around the bunny and sewed on the button eye.

Today, she also learned two different ways to box corners, how to make straps and how to topstitch. It’s so nice when a student becomes more independent when using a sewing machine. She can thread it, change the feet, select a stitch and adjust for seam allowances as needed.

This project is my own design. I’m currently editing the pattern and will be sharing it soon.

Can’t wait for our next session! We’ll be exploring projects that utilize Infusible Ink from Cricut. I already have an idea what we’re going to make. I’ll be experimenting over the next few days, so I can be ready.
