Yesterday they finished their large quilted patchwork pouch for all of their sewing supplies. The purpose of this lesson is to teach them the first zipper technique in a list of 5 different zipper techniques that I teach in the sewing classes. They also get to practice lots of sewing while quilting the outside fabrics of the pouch.
They first constructed some geometric patchwork pieces
and then joined them together
After that quilted heavily to create a stiff outer fabric
Embellished with many yoyos
they have a thing for yoyos :)
They wanted to go home with the pouches at the end of the lesson so I Iet them attach the yoyos with machine sewing this time.
The finished pouches. They are hand made and practical. They will use them every week in the sewing class.
They learnt to quilt, install a zipper and embellish with yoyos. A + for 3 techniques learnt this lesson.
