Class experience

I started sewing doll clothes by hand before kindergarten. Hand sewing is an extremely useful skill, and sadly it isn't part of the curriculum in most schools. I will show your student that creating things by hand can be fun and easy. They will learn (without realizing it) how important it is to follow directions, to go through all of the steps, and to use a basic pattern as a starting point for creativity.

Patterns will be provided, and should be printed out before class starts. Students will need: *Craft felt (often sold in 9" x 12" pieces; please try to avoid the "extra thick" felt)-- Each stuffie will need two pieces of the body color, and one of each additional color (scraps are ok too!) Students may choose the same colors seen in the photos or create their own color scheme. * Crochet floss (Amazon link for reference: https://amzn.to/2JaEyVv) or a packet of craft floss in the desired color (https://goo.gl/essqPC) or any comparable-weight thread. Regular sewing thread is not recommended for younger participants. * A large craft needle big enough to accommodate a full strand of floss and sharp enough to comfortably sew through felt. *Some big needles have dull points, which are hard to use with felt. * A pair of scissors that comfortably cuts felt (Note that I'm saying "comfortably" in reference to the needle and scissors-- it can be super frustrating to the students if their tools are uncooperative; it's good to test things out in advance!) Lightweight adult scissors, such as the ones seen here (https://www.amazon.com/Scissors-Titanium-Multipurpose-Comfort-Grip-Handles/dp/B07H3QKN2Z/ref=sr_1_5?keywords=scissors&qid=1585833719&sr=8-5), are pretty good craft scissors and should cut felt well (some age better than others). Other brands include Fiskars and Westcott. *Transparent tape or marking chalk/pencil *White craft or felt glue (Aleene's is my favorite; Amazon link here: https://goo.gl/1q8w6G). White school glue is not as desirable because it is quite a bit thinner and the felt will not stick to itself as well. A more advanced student may opt to sew the facial pieces together and onto the body. *Optional but fun- glitter glue, fabric markers, sticky gems, tulle, pipe cleaners, etc.
A helper may wish to be nearby based on student's skill and/or patience level. These patterns have a lot of little pieces to cut and keep track of.
