Round Pillows and Reverse Applique

 

We made some wonderful projects this month at our Girl’s Sew Club!

I like to select projects that will help the girls to learn new sewing techniques each time they come to class.

This month, they got to practice the art of sewing around curves while they made a round pillow.

They also learned to embellish their custom pillows with a fun technique called “reverse applique”.  The girls were encouraged to write their initial on the pillow or to draw a simple shape like a heart.

They then sewed around their letter or their drawing.

After that, they cut away the first layer of fabric to reveal the “peek-a-boo” fabric that was hiding underneath.

To top it off, some of them were even willing to try their hand at sewing piping around their pillows as well!

It was an evening of fun and lots of happy kids with some REALLY cute pillows!

Take a look to see what I mean:
