Mommy Sewing Lessons, Week 1

The girls expressed interest learning to sew this summer. So, I have started “Mommy Sewing Lessons” with them. I created a seven week lesson plan, gathering ideas and printables from several blogs. Since the girls' new machine was still on the way, our first lesson was with my Bernina.

To introduce the basics of the sewing machine, we started with sewing straight lines on paper.

After the girls mastered the straight lines, they moved on to practicing turning corners and angles.

The finale of their first lesson was completing a Connect the Dots, sewing version!

They then requested more Connect the Dots to practice with. Looks like they've caught the sewing bug!
