Most of my students learned how to sew using these techniques

watch this video:

that is the sewing machine and they made as fancy as a skirt and other
types of clothes...lots of pillows--the boys :) --girls got more
get self threading needles and a good tactile ruler to measure out where
buttons go, etc
one girl made tons of jewelry using these methods...it is touch and practice

Every child---either blind or sighted should and with me needed to know how
to hem pants and sew on buttons
