In Maker’s Guide to Sewing Stuff, youth will use the skills learned in STEAM Clothing 1 & 2 to make stuff! Youth will create items to use and wear while they practice their beginning sewing skills. Activities in this manual are for beginning and intermediate sewers looking to improve their skills before progressing into using patterns to make garments.
Activities in this youth manual include step-by-step instructions to draw patterns, cut fabric, and sew simple items. There are helpful pictures and illustrations for each activity to guide youth as they make stuff. A copy of STEAM Clothing 1: FUNdamentals & STEAM Clothing 2: Simply Sewing should be available for youth to reference as they sew the items.
Curriculum authored by The University of Nebraska–Lincoln.

I did several of the sewing projects with my students last Spring without a guide, but this will give the students practice... view more in reading directions instead of oral directions that need repeating. Illustrations are very helpful. view less
