Holiday Spirit Sewing Camp 2012

Chartiy sewing prep

It all started with a pile of fabric.

A very generous pile of fabric it was too; much of it donated by Pam Fricke of Bug Fabric in Redmond. Cut into pillowcases and sundresses, the pretty cloth from Pam was ready to be stitched up. Next, the girls arrived and sewing machines were set up, threaded, and stitch quality was checked. And then those eager little hands and big hearts started using their creative gifts to give back to children in need.

I love your concentration A – this looks like serious business!


R seamed a sundress for Dress a Girl Around the World, and is hemming the dress below. Nice job, eh?


M is carefully adding shiny gold binding to the armholes for the cute tie straps.

Look at these big-hearted girls!¬† Pillowcases and sundresses, some embroidered with¬† pretty stitches; all for other kids. These three chatted, ate, giggled, and had plenty o’fun throughout the day.

Silly sewing girls

It was a great kids sew camp. I got to spend the day sewing with three really special kids, and we all made some cute items that other kids will appreciate. Thanks for all you did, M, R, and A – you rocked it!!

Happy sewing!
