Sixth Graders Bolster Sewing Skills with Pillow Project, 12/10/2022
6th graders are boosting their sewing talents with a four-square pillow project. To accomplish the objective that they can demonstrate basic machine and hand sewing skills, students will complete a total of twenty-one steps to a finished pillow. These include:
threading both the machine and the bobbin;
selecting and pressing fabric;
tracing the template and cutting out squares from the fabric;
pinning and sewing pieces together;
stuffing the pillow;
threading a hand needle;
slip stitching and tying knots.
The project is estimated to take about a week and a half. At press time, students were just beginning to sew their pillows together.
