This is a great project for teaching sewing to the Young Women. The young ladies in my Ward had so much fun choosing fabric and sewing their own folder! It’s a lot of straight lines and a very simple, fun project! You will need 2 remnants of fabric and some ribbon for this project. I prefer fun cotton print fabric and 1/2″ or 3/4″ grosgrain ribbon. Cut two rectangles of fabric about 19″x 13″. This allows for a pen pocket. Placing fabric right sides together, sew a 1/4″ seam on 3 sides, leaving one short side open. Some girls sewed this side partially shut, also, leaving room to turn it…
This was a craft for the 12-13 year olds. We came up with this. Start with the blocks — I used 2×4’s. They are inexpensive and easy to come by. A full 8 foot board will run you just $2-$3. Cut them into squares/cubes. (A 2×4 is actually 1.5″ x 3.5″ — keep that in mind).
