Lovely project for budding sewers! They'll certainly love the cheerful, colourful prints you chose for your samples.

You and your daughter are to be thanked for your willingness to teach such a rewarding skill to another generation. Now they need to learn to knit.......................

They will think the French seam is magic! Have fun!
The main goal I would think is learning about group activities that teach a life long skill. 4-H was my teacher at age 12 for the sewing machine and 57 years later I am still using the first techniques I learned.

There is a sewing badge they earn. It goes on the banner they wear. I was girl scout leader decades ago.

My mother sewed all of our clothes, except for underwear and jeans. She put a needle in my hands when I was five, one of those sewing cards. By the time I was in my late teens, I was making my own clothes. It's such a useful skill to know, and I wish the school home economics classes would return with the sewing lessons, but for both sexes now.

Oh what memories !!
I remember going to my leaders home WOWOWOW to learn to sew on her machine. LONG before portable machines.
What a great idea. And they can make cases for foster kids.

Our daughter leads our granddaughter’s Brownie troop. They are going to learn to use a sewing machine this weekend and will make pillow cases. A number of moms are coming and bringing their machines. As a grandma I have also been invited. I made a couple of “sample”cases.

Your pillowcases are truly inspiring! Those girls will have so much fun. For many years I made a pillow case every News Years Day from start to finish. It is not a difficult task and it is said to give you good luck all year. Then I stopped - I don't remember why - I had a suitcase full of pillow cases an sometimes for fun I would tack them to the wall for a decoration.

One of the ladies that knits where I do, also sews (quilts) and she makes a new pillowcase, for each g-child at the beginning of every school year. Her Guild makes & donates to a shelter. They are quick & fun.

I just love the look of homemade pillowcases. Too often a mfg one is not big enough. Good to see young ones are learning to sew again.

Perfect beginner project. My great grand daughter and one great grand son started with a pillow case and then a pillow.
