Kids sewing – T-shirt skirt

This Kids’ sewing – T-shirt skirt class is an exciting upcycling project for children aged 11-15 to sew. They must have completed the introductory ‘kids learn to sew’ class or have previous sewing machine experience.

Class Description

This sewing class for children will give them more useful practice.  It covers basic sewing techniques such as cutting fabric, making seams and hems. Plus it teaches useful upcycling ‘make do and mend’ skills. We’ll be making a fabulous, fashionable skirt from T-shirts. Please supply 2 (or more) old t-shirts (Adult’s or child’s, but freshly-laundered) Two is the minimum number required but additional shirts can be used for different colours in each panel.

Sewing is an ideal activity for children. It stimulates their creativity while enabling mental and physical development.  Crafts such as sewing encouraging focus and concentration, whilst giving a sense of achievement and self-worth.
