    I couldn’t think of a better project than sewing Powerpuff Girls.  I am passionate about teaching kids to sew.  I truly believe a sewing machine is power. This lifetime skill can provide a source of accomplishment, give confidence, provide a positive creative outlet and even provide income!  So what better thing to sew than Powerpuff Girls dolls! Girl power for sure!

    The Powerpuff Girls centers on three sugar-coated superheroes, Blossom, Bubbles, and Buttercup, whose missions in life alternate between going to school, fighting crime, winning at hopscotch and saving the world before bedtime. The girls are frequently called upon by the town’s mayor to help fight nearby criminals using their powers. While their differences cause them to squabble and tease, their individual strengths combined always lead them to victory. They rely on teamwork, trust, and friendship to thwart evil (in the most adorable way).
