Look what you can do in twenty minutes…

We’ve been sewing at school during open classroom every afternoon.

By the time I was done, about half of the class was watching, which I realized is an important part of learning to sew. They were so excited when I finished.

I was working under a time constraint. I guess I should have ironed it, the fabric had been folded up for a long time on the shelf in the classroom. I can’t wait to carry my books to school tomorrow in my new bag.
