Sewing Club

Sewing club are working towards making book bags and holdalls. 

In our first week, we measured and cut patterns for our bags, remembering to add our seam allowances! We have all decided to create slightly different bags and discussed the  ways we could make them unique. We chose fabric and looked at the different combinations of fabrics that might work together.


In week 2, we cut our cloth! We had to pin very carefully and ensure that our fabric was straight.   Pockets and trims have been cut and we have pinned everything together ready to tack next week. 

We are now at the stage where the children have cut their cloth, learnt how to pin and tack, and are now using the machines to sew seams. Once sewn, the bags are pressed ready for the next stage.
