Description

This sewing and embroidery lesson packet is the ideal series of lessons for the Home Economics / Life Skills teacher to use during distance learning. It includes three sewing projects, leveled to meet the needs of beginning, intermediate, and advanced sewists. 

The first sewing project is a Minecraft-character-shaped pincushion or plush toy, which can be made into a foot sack for indoor or outdoor play. This project requires little previous knowledge of sewing, and it includes an easy-to-sew printable sewing pattern for the pincushion/foot sack project. Lessons plus pre-testing ideas are provided. The video tutorial links include:

  • How to use a needle threader
  • How to do basic stitches with a needle and thread
  • How to sew the project itself

This Minecraft sewing project is ideal for beginners. It uses felt with a needle and thread, so students can create the project using tools most people already have at home.

The second lesson is for your intermediate Home Economics / Life Skills students, and it includes the pattern for making a windmill-shaped pincushion. It requires previous knowledge of how to use a needle and thread or sewing machine, but it teaches several lessons on embroidery as well. This project uses cotton fabric, a shank button, embroidery floss, craft foam, a small embroidery hoop, and offers links to 14 different embroidery video tutorials. A pre-test concept is included. The video tutorial links include:

  • 14 different embroidery stitches to choose from, each with their own tutorial video
  • The tutorial which shows how to make the windmill pincushion itself
  • Tutorial videos showing how to thread an embroidery needle and how to load an embroidery hoop

The third lesson teaches your advanced Home Economics / Life Skills students how to make a dragon-shaped pincushion. 

As with the other projects, the dragon pincushion lesson includes a pre-test idea for the teacher plus the dragon-shaped pincushion pattern itself. Your students will review earlier concepts like embroidery, but they may want to use machine embroidery for this project rather than hand embroidery (but either will work). The video tutorial links provided will teach the following:

  • How to make the dragon pincushion itself
  • How to gather fabric
  • Instructions will include how to sew a gusset
  • Knowledge of top-stitching is a prerequisite

Two of the three patterns provided in this packet are free on my website, so by purchasing this item, you are essentially buying the lessons, testing concepts, written instructions for the students, easy-to-find links to the tutorials, and the one and only PDF pincushion pattern that’s not available on my website.
