Teaching Girls To Sew
Last night at our church's "Young Women's" night I had the opportunity to teach 15 girls how to sew! They learned how to make Pajama Pants and they all turned out adorable. The girls I taught are between the ages of 14 and 18 and some of them had never sewn before. It was a wild fun night with sewing machines a buzzing and girls talking and laughing. Some of the girls got creative and added pockets to their PJ Pants as seen below in the photo.
Out of 15 girls....all but two finished their Pajama pants by the end of the evening.
Some of the girls were really patient and some were not...below is a photo of one girl sewing her elastic waistband together with her PJ pants on! Absolutely hysterical!
All in all it was a very fun night and I think the girls learned a lot and realized sewing can be a great creative outlet and that they can now make these PJ Pants for any member of their family or for friends. We plan to do this again and make more PJ pants to give to a local shelter for women and children.
