The variety of fabrics, styling, and pattern design that young sewists combine to make a garment always blows me away. They put so much of themselves into their creationsâ€”you really get a little glimpse into their hearts.
This week two sets of sisters and friends came for a mini sew camp, and their project-of-choice was aprons. Mix one pattern, McCalls 5720, four creative spirits, a huge variety of fabric and trims, add 4 sewing machines, and you will get something like this!
There was a really wide skill level in this class, but zero shortage of enthusiasm and persistance. I say it all the time, and see it all the time tooâ€”kids learn so much more than sewing skills around here. It is really rewarding to watch them grapple with challenges.
And also have fun posing for a camera shot! 😉
I wonder what they will be cooking up in the kitchen now with their new aprons? I bet the food choices will be as varied as the aprons, and as they are!
