Kids' Summer Sewing: Tote Bag! Zoom Class - Wednesday 7/29, 1:00-3:30pm
A useful and fun project! Kids love to make these for themselves, or as gifts for friends and family!
This online summer class is great for kids who have sewn with us before, or who will have the assistance of an adult*.
In this class they will learn about measuring, cutting, pressing, pinning/clipping, and using a sewing machine to make a lined Tote Bag. You will choose two fabrics online from our selection of fun modern prints (one for the out side of the bag and one for the inside) and we will ship them to you! Please sign up and send your fabric choice to firstname.lastname@example.org by MONDAY 7/20 so we can get your materials to you on time.
Cost is $55 and includes all materials. Ages *8yrs and up.
PLEASE NOTE: *Students between 8 to 10 year olds will definitely need to have an adult present to assist, unless they are very familiar with a machine, such as those who have sewn with Mary frequently in the past. (You know who you are! Please check with Mary to be certain of your child's skill level.) Our goal is to get your child sewing on their own, but there are many little steps that Mary would normally assist with during in-person classes, and safety is always a concern with sewing. Best to plan to be available to your 9 to 10 yr old, or to assist the entire time with you 8 to 9 year old.
YOU WILL NEED:
- sewing machine
- sewing machine thread
- thread snips (optional. but helpful)
- pins and/or fabric clips
- a small ruler or seam gauge
- washable glue stick (optional)
- iron and ironing board (optional, and used with assistance from an adult)
Space is limited and registration is necessary. Deadline to register is Monday 7/20.
Once you sign up, please go to the fabric section of our website and choose two quilting cottons up to $11.99 per yard, then email your choice to Bianca at owlanddrum@gmail .com.
Mary will send a Zoom link for the class to the email you use to sign up with, 15 minutes before class begins.
For questions about the class, please email Mary at email@example.com.
Sewing requires the use of sharp tools and hot irons. Signing your child up for a sewing class indicates that you understand the slight risk of injury and will not hold Mary Make & Do, Mary Perisho or Owl & Drum responsible.
