Little Brother just finished seventh grade. School was out on the 25th. He brought home his sewing projects.
All seventh graders at his junior high school made a cloth pencil case this year. They were given the white piece of cloth with the zipper already sewn into it. They had to sew the checked piece of cloth onto it. They were also given a button to sew on the bag.
They also made a trivet, a hot pad. They were given squares of felt. They cut out a design and glued the squares together. Little Brother glued the yellow star that he cut from the felt on the other side. He used a sewing machine to stitch around the trivet.
