At the end of last school year, I decided to put in my resignation. I have taught high school for 7 years and I really love it, but it was time for a change. I have two little ones at home and wanted to make sure I was devoting more time to them.
So to help supplement our income, I decided to open a kids summer sewing camp. It was a success and so much fun! We converted our front bedroom into a "classroom".
Below are the projects the students did. These are children ages 7 to about 15. We had a great time and they learned a lot. Many of the projects are available in my Etsy Shop, in case you were wondering.
These are "make-up bags". We made them with the pencil pouch pattern in the Back 2 School Pattern Pack. We just boxed the edges.
This is one of the Art Kits, also available in the Back 2 School Pattern Pack. I think of all my student projects this was the most popular.
A simple notebook cover. We did them for composition notebooks and for spiral notebooks. The kids really enjoyed these.
The Pleatly Please Purse/Sidebag
I love this one! It makes a great sidebag. I have a couple students do these. They worked really hard and they turned out so good.

This one is so cute. The gal below is 10. It is really a great size for ages 3-10.
Overall, I will say I was super impressed! These kids really enjoyed sewing (even the ones that rolled their eyes when their mom told them they were taking a sewing class). I hope to keep teaching. It is in my blood!!
