When I was between 8-10, my mother (who was an excellent seamstress - but who didn't have the patience to teach) had my sister and I get sewing lessons. Over the years, I've made clothes for myself and many craft projects. I decided it was time to start my 8 y.o. on a sewing project. Yesterday, we made a pair of "lounge pants." They were too big, but they are comfy for her... and it was a good beginning project.
Lots of hidden schooling was part of the lesson... reading (directions), math (measurements), listening (to instructions), patience, and satisfaction (in a job well done)!
This morning, before school started, we made a skirt...
