I am putting together sewing boxes for the kids who I want to teach sewing to use. So far I have these items:

Six sewing boxes -- I thought they were cute.


Six of these lightweight Gingher scissors.


These cute little animal pin cushions.


Six of these needle inserters.


Six of these cartoon tape measures.


Six of these thread clippers.


Six of my home sewen magnetic wrist pin cushions.

Pins, needles, seam gauges, seam rippers, thread, and bobbins are already purchased.

Cute!

What will they be sewing? Will they do their own cutting? Marking?

Yes, they will. I hope to have the class once twice a week.

How about a pierce resistant tool roll with a slot for the scissors, one for the nippers, maybe a slot for tweezers and another slot or two for future use. No telling what your student's home storage might be. This would emphasize respect for the tools and also, tool safety. An empty spot with Velcro would leave room for a student project addition to the roll later.

Are your students old enough to start the habit of making notes on stitch length, needle size, etc. Small notepad or index cards? I can see this leading to a little project to hold the notecards.

I've been getting the itch to teach again and will be checking with the mom's of the older neighborhood girls to see if there is any interest.

Best wishes.

Great ideas!

I have some fabric scraps left from the sewing machine totes, table top ironing board cover, and the wrist magnetic pin cushions I made!

I will start working on the tool holders right away! I doubt if I have enough scraps to do the notecard holders, but I have enough tiny scraps to make a lot of pattern weights! I will fill them with split shot fishing weights.

Do they need chalk or some other marking tool?

CUTE sewing boxes--where did you get them???

Thank you Lord for my Mother who taught me the joy of sewing, for my Father who encouraged my sewing, for the talent You gave me to sew, and for all the special people in my life to sew for.

Yes, I forgot marking tools. I will put it down.

I got the sewing boxes on Ebay several years ago. I still see them on Ebay occasionally.
