Kids Sewing - Drawstring Backpack
Kids 8 years old & up are welcome to join us in sewing a drawstring backpack. In this class your child will learn some sewing basics, including learning the parts of the sewing machine, cutting fabric, sewing a straight line, threading drawstring and turning corners. We'll provide the pattern and specific instructions and guide your child along the way to making a pillowcase.
