Be sure to refer to the publication, PNW0197, Measuring Up: Quality Standards in Sewn Items, to evaluate
your newly learned skills. It lists and describes specific characteristics that can be expected in high-quality
construction. To evaluate your project using PNW0197, look up the different construction techniques
(listed in alphabetical order) that you used. Compare your sewn item with the listed characteristics of high-
quality construction. Many techniques can produce the same result. You may want to try several tech-
niques for the same skill and determine which you like best. All may produce quality results, but one
method may be easier for you to do than another.
Looking back over what you have learned in 4-H sewing will give you a great feeling of pride. Enjoy your
experiences and keep a good record of your accomplishments. This publication will help you do just that!!
HAPPY SEWING!!
