4-H Project completed

Claire and Elaina Geake of Wall Lake and Peyton Ellerbrock of Sac City

Nine youth started their sewing pouch during Christmas break and worked approximately 11 hours to finally complete them. Sac County Youth Coordinator created a pattern for the 4-H’ers to follow as the pattern was a little small and she wrote out step by step instructions for the girls to follow. All of the girls agreed the hardest part of the entire project was putting in a zipper. They also learned how to blind stitch and for a few of the youth this was their first sewing project. The girls plan to exhibit their pouches into the 2020 Sac County Fair and can’t wait to use them.
