I’m teaching Amelie to sew with the sewing machine! Work along with us to sew a simple skirt. This is a great project for older children who can work with their grown-up as a team to make a wearable project. The skirt is quick to sew and you can let your child do as much or as little of the steps as you feel is appropriate for their experience and ability. Please be careful and supervise at all times.
To join in you’ll need:
Approximately 1 metre of lightweight fabric. We used a printed polycotton.
Matching sewing thread
Sewing kit – scissors, tape measure, pins, safety pins.
Learn to use a sewing machine by making a simple skirt that you can wear all summer.
