Class Experience

I began sewing when I was 11 and started teaching sewing as a senior in high school at the homeschool group I attended. This was how I discovered my love of teaching and I have been teaching in some capacity ever since. I now have over 10 years of teaching experience.
Students will complete work on their own since this not a live class but are free to message me with questions at anytime. 
Supply list: All felt should be the standard 9 by 12-inch pieces that you can find at any craft store, Walmart, or on Amazon. 1 piece of felt for practicing stitches 1 piece of felt for the pincushion 1 piece of felt for the pencil case 2 pieces of felt for the pillow At least 2 different colors to cut out pieces to decorate the pillow, you can use as many colors at you like but remember that smaller shapes will be harder to sew on. 1 button for the case and however many buttons you want to decorate the pillow. All buttons should be 2 or 4 hole buttons. Scissors Needles, ones will a bigger eye are easier to thread Pins Thread (color or colors of your choice)
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
No live meetings, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
Please note that students may need help with some aspects, namely threading the needle tying it off as well as cutting out the pieces. Some students this age simply do not have the fine motorskills needed.
