Fun sewing project #2: Pillowcases

When I found this tutorial (click here),
I knew I had found the second sewing project I wanted the girls
in my beginning sewing project to try.
These pillowcases came together so easily,
and the girls enjoyed picking their own fabrics and learning new
machine skills.

With this project the girls learned:

Meauring fabric with seam allowances and hems in mind
Cutting fabric
Choosing decorative stitches appropriate for this project
Choosing appropriate thread color
French seams
Pressing versus ironing

How fun for you to be able to teach a class like this. The pillowcases turned out just lovely.
