I recently saw that the Home Ec online sewing class I signed up for over the summer is being reoffered. I wanted to share a little about my personal experience as a Home Ec student for anyone who might consider taking the class for themselves. At the time I started this e-course, I’d had my sewing machine for two years, but had never learned how to use it. I literally couldn’t even thread the needle. Now, seven months later, sewing has become one of my favorite hobbies! Both my skills and confidence have drastically improved with time.
The projects for Home Ec start off small and basic and work their way up in size and skill. I started by making cloth napkins (which I had to re-do, haha) and will end with a quilt. All of the tutorials for the Home Ec projects are accompanied by well-done photographs. Each of the three instructors has a very unique personality and project style. One huge benefit about this class is the “go at your own pace” set up. Some of the other students were doing a project a day. I am still working my way through them as I have the time. No pressure!

Now for a little show and tell! Here are a few photos of some of the projects I have made using the class tutorials.

My leopard print canvas bag. A ton of work, but worth it! This project was blogged here.
