Tonight for our class activities we are going to review clothing and laundry basics and things you need to know to maintain your clothing. I am in charge of the basic sewing skills, so we are going to make this bookmark. It uses a piece of ribbon (whatever length you want to fit your book), a hair band elastic, a button and needle with thread. (To prevent fraying, I used a lighter to melt the ends of the ribbon, just a tip!)
1st- They will learn to thread a needle
2nd- They will learn to do a basic stitch to close in the end with the elastic band
3rd- They will sew a button on the other end of the ribbon
