First I showed her how to open up the actual pattern and find which pieces she needed for her particular poncho. I had her cut each paper pattern piece out that was needed. In this case is was three pieces.
She then learned how to lay the pattern pieces out on the fabric. She learned what the grain, fold, and selvage of the fabric was. She laid each piece out on her fabric.
After carefully laying out the pattern pieces, she then pinned them to her fabric and was ready to start cutting.
She made her shoulder seams and then hemmed the poncho according to the directions. On her next visit she will put the zipper in!
This grandma is very proud of her nine year old granddaughter!! She is so easy to work with and teach. So willing and eager to learn.
