Children's Intro to Machine Sewing Part 2 - Make a Backpack
Maximum Class Size: 5
We run children's sewing classes during the school holidays for kids of 8 years and older, our workshops encourage creativity, as well as improving self-confidence, patience and fine motor skills!
If your child has completed our Introduction to Machine Sewing Part 1 - Make An Apron or already knows how to use a sewing machine but wants to develop their skills further, it's time for the next step! During this 3 hour workshop they will accomplish some essential skills that will help them advance to more complicated projects. By the end of the class they will have made a fully lined, zip up back pack with pocket using Ray Stitch fabric, perfect for carrying books & other bits and bobs!
In this class they will cover the following techniques:
- Thread up a sewing machine (quick recap)
- Sew straight lines, corners and curves using a seam allowance
- Cut from a pattern template
- Insert a zip
- Attach a pocket
- Make and attach lining
All materials and tools are provided.
(If your child already owns a sewing machine and would prefer to use that, please bring it along - provided it is less than 10 years old.)
