sewing a pillow

Sewing work continues!  Several children asked to sew again and we came up with pillow sewing. First the pattern is drawn on the pillow.  The pins are added to hold the material in place.  As the child sews past the pin, it is taken out and placed in the pin cushion.
Once most of the pillow is sewn up, it is turned inside out and stuffing is added.
The child sews along the outside edge and a pillow is made! 
This activity requires strong fine motor skills, concentration and patience!
