Agy from Green Issues writes about her son’s first sewing project - cutting off a pair of jeans to make shorts. This is a great first project! Before the sewing began, she turned him loose with some stencils and fabric paint. The sewing is just a couple of seams, but along the way he learned about measuring and cutting, threading the machine, and getting the right speed with the foot pedal. Go to her blog to read more.
