I started working after school three days a week for our after school program called ASPIRE (it stands for something but I don't know what!). Anyway it's been challenging for me, but really rewarding as well. The challenging part is the longer hours which puts a strain on the whole family. But I think they understand that the kids do enjoy their sewing time! OH, I also help with homework...lol!
Here is the Christmas trees we made during class. This is mine. The kids decorated theirs with buttons donated by my Uncle Darwin. I didn't get to take final pictures of them because I was too busy tying knots :( But trust me they turned out wonderful!
I got this pattern from my grandma years ago. I shrank it some so we would have enough fabric for everyone!
This project took 3 hours. I have 3rd - 5th graders. Due to some being absent there were 20 made altogether. We used almost 20 yards of fabric, 20 packages of 16oz. stuffing, and tons of buttons! Sew much fun!
