Bunting - Making bunting is an easy first sewing project for children who have just learned to use a sewing machine.
Bunting is an easy sewing project for children. It's fun to do and is an ideal first sewing project once they've learned how to use a sewing machine. Bunting makes a lovely decoration so children can personalise their bedrooms.
Who is this aimed at?
Children aged 8-12 years old. Children must have already taken the Kids Introductory sewing class
What will my child learn?
- How to mark and cut fabric
- how to sew around the edges to make the flags
- positioning flags evenly on the tape
- attaching flags to tape
Sewing is an ideal creative activity for children. It develops their manual dexterity, hand/eye co-ordination, and encourages focus and concentration. Plus it gives them a huge sense of achievement and self-worth. And it's such great fun, they won't realise they're learning a valuable life-skill.
All equipment and materials are provided, including sewing machines. In all the childrens' sewing classes, numbers are limited so each child receive lots of attention and can be carefully supervised.
Children must be able to place their feet flat on the floor when sitting in a chair that's 45cm off the floor. If they cannot, then they will not be able to operate the sewing machine safely and for their own safety, will not be able to take the class.
If you're considering purchasing a machine for yourself or your child, then I recommend Pembertons, the specialist sewing machine dealer.
