Today, the group I was in did sewing. We could make either pillowcase, apron, or a dress. I decided to make a pillowcase.
First, we designed the product we wanted to make on a sheet of paper. The people who wanted to make a apron or a dress had to cut the newspaper into the actual size of it. Then, by the help of the newspaper, they cut out the fabric, following the outline of the newspaper. People who wanted to make pillowcase had to measure and cut the fabric without the newspaper.
On the second day, there were sewing machines on the table, and we used them to sew our products. Some of us used the sewing machine before, but most of us did not so we learnt how to use them by the teachers. We had to be careful not to put our fingers near the needle because it might sew our fingers as well.
While we were using the sewing machine, the thread got mixed up inside the machine so we had to wait. However, we fixed the problem and started doing our work again.
It was my first time using the sewing machine, and it was fun. I think most of us enjoyed the project. I would like to do it again.
