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 creations—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 too—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!
