I have to admit that on multiple occasions I asked myself what I was thinking attempting to sew with 7-8 year olds. Of the 75 artists, there were about 3 who said they had previously done some sewing.
The (constant) untangling and un-sewing is totally worth it though when I see them so focused and excited drawing with yarn. Sewing is such a practical skill to have and utilizing it as a new medium to create art is even better. There is such a sense of accomplishment when they realize what they are doing and when they are able to help and teach other students as well.
Things most challenging–threading the needle and tying knots. But with continued practice and patience….see what they have made:
I’d say these works of art are pretty amazing!
