Showing off Upcycled Jeans projects

The Upcycling Jeans class at our local children's library was a huge success! I am not sure who had more fun, the girls in the class or me! At the end of the first class, they were all so excited to go home and finish what they started or work on something new. By the end of the last class, they were really on a roll. Here are a few pictures of some of their projects, taken just before they all left after the last class...

These classes are so much fun to prepare for and teach, and so much fun for the girls who get into them. They are funded by the Friends of the Leominster Public Library and are free to the students. Now that this year's program is finished, it will be interesting to see what we come up with for next year.

Happy Stitching!
