Infant Hats for Hope!

My students need a sewing machine to create infant hats for donation, to Children's Hospital and other organizations. In addition, we are teaching students functional sewing skills.

My Students

Our students are from the ages of 10-17, and are in the juvenile detention center (we are not a long term care facility). The time they are with us varies; sometimes they can be with us for seventy-two hours, and sometimes they can be with us for a couple of months. The length of stay is typically determined by the following reasons: court dates, finding an appropriate placement, etc. These students have typically been in the system from several years, and have big gaps in their learning. Often, times they lack basic living skills; such as cooking, cleaning, and other household skills. They are students that have unfortunately experienced a lot of trauma, and need to be provided with skills to empower them.

My Project

This project is a way for students to give back to their community and impact a life of an infant. Infant hats, are truly critical in the health and well-being of a newborn. These hats will be donated to Children's Hospital of Milwaukee, and other organizations that can utilize them. This is also a skill that they can take with them, since many of our students may have children early in life.

Students will learn how to use a sewing machine to make several projects; specifically hats for infants.

We will also be making pillow cases, and microwave potato bag (that goes along with our cooking classes). Overall, our students need skills that empower them to be self-sufficient and productive.
