Special promo for this class only: price is per family, not per learner! All siblings within the same household included in the price of the class. Parents are welcome to participate, too! Grow from a beginner to intermediate "sewist" on your own schedule with this complete and thorough flex class! If your student is interested in learning to sew starting from the basics to intermediate, independent sewing, this course is for you! This course is a complete sewing program for boys and girls that will cover machine and hand sewing basics. Students following this program will learn to make the following items: Week 1 - Small stuffed pillow Week 2 - Tote bag Week 3 - Pajama/gym shorts Week 4 - Child apron Week 5 - Zippered pencil pouch Week 6 - Hemming and repairing (plus a mini felt toy stuffed animal) Sewing skills that will be covered include: - Reading and following a sewing pattern - Sewing machine features and explanation of stitches, tension and troubleshooting - How to wind a bobbin and thread your machine - Measuring and cutting fabric (basic knowledge of fractions and how to use a ruler is helpful) - How to sew zippers and buttons - How to encase elastic, sew straps and pockets - Hand-sewing basics (hemming, darning, small repairs, patches, buttons and more) - Detailed explanation of different fabric types, including special occasion/cosplay fabrics Each week I will present my video tutorial and any patterns for our project that you may need to download and print. Students will be asked to share their completed projects with the class during the week by uploading picture or video to our classroom on Google Classroom so that your fellow students and I can admire your work! Since this is a flex class, there are no live meetings; however, I am available to answer your questions any time during the 6 weeks of class. I will also be posting tips and ideas, suggestions and encouragement in the classroom throughout the course. This is the biggest difference between my course and any other sewing course you might find online! It is my goal for each student to complete this course with the skills to sew independently. At the end of our time together, I will provide a digital certificate of completion that you can print out and proudly display!
