The Stuff Dreams Are Made On
The Stuff Dreams Are Made On

It’s that time of the year when my Family and Consumer Sciences classes have completed their “The Stuff Dreams Are Made On” sewn pillow project! Watching their faces as they master machine and hand sewing techniques is great. 😊. I’m always fascinated to see who has an aptitude for these skills and who has an ability for these skills! Some of my students really “serge” to the front of the class 😂

I am so happy my students can now sew on their own buttons, use a serger and sewing machine, have learned about clothing construction and the history of clothing, and can do their own laundry ❤️❤️❤️

They also have created something that will make road trips more bearable! Some of my students gave their pillow as a gift, and I always have a few students who will come in on their free time to sew pillows for gifts to family and friends! Parents please tag yourself as there are so many students!
