Pinks

They are making a large quilted patchwork pouch for all of their sewing supplies but it takes a while to complete it.


In between I like to give them quicker, more gratifying projects.


So today I decided to teach them how to make a simple lined zippered pouch decorated with fabric flowers and yoyos.


I had taught them last week how to make yoyos and flowers. In addition, I have a huge collection of yoyos that I have made so I decided to share some with them as well.

I wasn't at all surprised when they chose my pastel selection. Those are the colors that I see them wearing all the time.

They chose pink fabrics bold and light, for the body of the pouch and a white zipper each.

Two of them wanted the pale pink outside

They pinned the yoyos in place and I decided to teach them how to sew them down by machine and not by hand this time.

They ironed the pieces

They went home smiling with pink zippered pouches.
