We started with stitching samplers - whip stitch and running stitch. To practice these stitches we first had to thread the needle and knot the thread - tricky enough! Knotting off when your thread runs out was mastered as well.
We made needle cases too so we can keep all our needles together in a safe spot - we learned how to sew on a needle to close the case.
These can be used to hold out supplies - or worn as a hat!
