I have been teaching beginning sewing lessons in my home recently.  I have had several wonderful students.  This week’s student shows great promise.  She came to me having already created items on her own.  The purpose of our lesson was to get acquainted with selecting a pattern and fabric, and completing a project by using a pattern, including layout, cutting, sewing and pressing.    She did a fantastic job!

My student selected is this tote pattern.  Simplicity also has some “Learn to Sew Patterns” here.
