s is for… sewing!

Check out our cool sewing project! One of our friends was very curious when she watched me sew a seam that had come undone on her neck warmer, and really wanted to learn how to sew! Excellent timing as our letter of the week is S… We started today by choosing 2 fabric swatches, and making an inside-out sandwich with them. Then we learned that sandwich (כריך ka-reekh) and pillow (כרית ka-reet) sound very similar and talked about how pillows and sandwiches are the same and different. Some friends were able to begin stitching today, and we will continue tomorrow! Stay tuned!
