This sewing pattern is designed to teach new or young sewers how to follow sewing instructions.  Students with a little experience may be able to follow by themselves.  Younger students may need help, but read the directions carefully together and encourage them to figure out each step.  This is a simple project, so the focus can really be on reading and following each step.
