Quilted Patchwork Pouch

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

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.
