Kids Sew Camp – August 2012

Last week wrapped up the final sewing camp for kids for 2012. Boo! Six enthusiastic kids, 1 slightly frazzled teacher, and 1 indispensable assistant got together for four days of sewing fun. The focus for this camp was creating clothes and accessories for dolls, but we also spent a day working on other projects. The output tally was:

  1. 6 flannel doll pillows
  2. 6 quilted doll sleeping bags
  3. 6 poodle skirts for dolls
  4. 5 doll cardigan sweaters
  5. 2 “pillowcase” sundresses for 2 students
  6. a zippered bag made for a mommy
  7. 2 wrap doll jumpers
  8. a myriad of little self-designed doll bags and food items

Such creativity and cooperation we shared last week! New friendships were formed, and email and phone numbers exchanged in addition to all the sewing that was accomplished. I hope I get to see some of those faces in my studio again, because now they are a little bit “my” kids. Yeah, you know who you are! 🙂

You can get a little taste of our experience here.

Happy sewing!
