Round Pillows and Reverse Applique at Girl’s Sew Club

We made some wonderful projects this month at our Girl’s Sew Club!

I like to select projects that will help the girls to learn new sewing techniques each time they come to class.

This month, they got to practice the art of sewing around curves while they made a round pillow.

They also learned to embellish their custom pillows with a fun technique called “reverse applique”.  The girls were encouraged to write their initial on the pillow or to draw a simple shape like a heart.

They then sewed around their letter or their drawing.

After that, they cut away the first layer of fabric to reveal the “peek-a-boo” fabric that was hiding underneath.

To top it off, some of them were even willing to try their hand at sewing piping around their pillows as well!

It was an evening of fun and lots of happy kids with some REALLY cute pillows!

Take a look to see what I mean:

Girls Sew Club at Humble Sewing Center

It’s the beginning of a new year with the Girl’s Sew Club!

Hi!  This is Jenny!  I’ve been teaching a monthly girl’s sew club at Hobby Lobby in Humble and our group has outgrown the space there.  Now, we will be meeting once a month at Humble Sewing Center….YAY!

Click here to see our CALENDAR and class details.

We have a wonderful group of young ladies and their new sewing skills are really beginning to blow me away!

Here are a few pictures of one of our recent classes:

What we do:

We focus on learning and mastering beginner sewing skills as we make  a project during our FREE monthly class.  The girls are responsible to bring their own machines and supplies.  Mom’s and mentors are welcome (actually preferred) to stay and enjoy the class with their girl/girls.

This is a great place to learn an important and practical life skill as well as make new friends!

The class is FREE because it is sponsored by my non-profit group called Girls Restoration Project.

Girls Restoration Project is dedicated to helping American-born, under-age girls that have been rescued from the nightmare and slavery of sex trafficking. Donations to this group are being used to provide brand new sewing machines, fabrics, and supplies for girls who are going through a sewing program while living at a safe-house. Most of the safe-house girls are dealing with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and sewing classes are proving to be a beneficial part of their healing process.

On a lighter note….

Two of my Hobby Lobby / Humble Sewing Center students have launched their own sewing business and they are selling their projects on Face Book!

Here are some pictures of their latest creations:
