Water Bottle Apron Class

Sew Katie Jean, the quilt shop in my area, has been open for a year.   Katie is celebrating her one year anniversary.  Each day of the week, she is having one of her instructors teach a mini class.  My day was today, and I taught the "water bottle apron" class.  I found the pattern and tutorial at Bee in my Bonnet.
Here are the little aprons I made.

These are the darling sisters who took my class.  From left to right, they are Sarah (9 yrs.), Beth (12 yrs.) and Abby (11yrs.).  They were so excited about learning how to sew!  First I taught them how to press, because that is a lost art.  They were such sweet girls, and I had a great time.  You can tell by their smiles that they did too!  

Teaching young girls to sew is very rewarding. They are like sponges, clinging on to every word you say.  I think it's really special when young people are eager to learn how to sew!

  1. Oh those bottles covers are cute! And so is your little group of sew-ers. I do love teaching little ones to sew also. They are always so brave and enthusiastic about it!

  2. Lori would be so proud that you taught from one of her tutorials. I remember when she made those, and they are so cute!
