Well, who knew I'd have so much fun with Sewing School?! If you follow my blog, you know that I started "Sewing School" for my granddaughter. It's been awhile since I really did some sewing, but she wanted to learn and what LeAnna wants, LeAnna gets. LOL
We decided that she'd come over every Wednesday evening & make one project a week. The first lesson, we went over rules and showing her where the needle is, etc. She played around with scrap fabric and we ended up making a Barbie pillow.
Next lesson, I had her sew lines on a sheet of paper to practice sewing straight. She concentrated so hard and did a really good job. But she was getting bored and wanted to actually make something. She said this felt too much like regular school. So we took a trip to the fabric store and bought some fabric.
So far we've made a skirt and a pillow. Tonight, we'll work on a pillowcase nightgown. It's been forever since I've made one of these and I found this on Pinterest to spark my memory.
Here are some photos of us knee deep in Sewing School and the final projects.

She said she likes hand sewing the best. I love that smile on her face!She wants to make a blanket for her cat and we'll probably do an apron after that. Since school starts next week, I'm not sure how long we'll keep this up, but right now we're having fun!
Any suggestions on easy sewing projects??
