Hand-Sewn Wall Hangings in 1st grade

First graders were really excited to hear they would be sewing in art class - this wall hanging project teaches young students how to thread a plastic needle with a paper threader and yarn, make a running stitch, and add decorative beads and sequins.
We began with a lesson on threading the needle and then we do a "down, up, pull" technique for the running stitch. After we make a couple of successful rows, we start adding rows of sequins and beads to the routine.

I finished off each wall hanging with some colorful tape on the ends of the burlap and a spot of hot glue on the ends of the ribbon.
We presented the wall hangings with a little information sheet and shared our favorite part about learning to sew.
