Make It!


If you’ve thought about sewing—and how you could create whatever you dreamed up—then you should act on that thought! Sewing is easy and supercreative. Plus you can “upcycle” by adding a unique touch to something already made.


Take a look at what just a few NMG girls are making:

If you’re just starting, join in the conversation to get tips. Check out a sewing book for beginners—there are bunch of good ones at your local library or bookstore. Hand-sewing works fine for many things, and you can get an inexpensive (or used) sewing machine. Ask around—someone may be happy to teach you some sewing basics.


Here’s Olivia on her love of sewing. Comment below about what you’re making or hope to make!
