Birds and a Pig
Another class of young students just ended. Instead of teddy bears this class made birds.....and a pig. At the beginning of each class the kids pick the felt color, thread color, embellishments and the size of the bird, I thread the needle, knot, and untangle. The kids in this group were 5-8 and very enthusiastic. We had many laughs. The first step in my classes is to make a needle case, this teaches the kids how to hold a needle, sew on a button and how to pull the needle all the way up or down through the fabric. After they get the basic idea of what to do with the needle and thread they are ready to create a bird, teddy bear......... or a pig.
