Our fabric painted pillows are done!!  And they look great!  First we removed the freezer paper from the fabric and then we picked fabric for the pillow backing.

We sewed up our pillows, then ironed them and stuffed them.  They all turned out great!  And they are all so different from each other.

These two students have spent all their camp time standing at the table working on their various projects.  Such small projects require great concentration, lots of fine motor skills for all those tiny stitches and loads of patience.

Nothing better than picking fabric and starting a new project.

This student decided to turn the owl pillow pattern into a bag.  I love her fabric choices and just look at the buttons she chose!  Cute, cute, cute!

This 3rd grader is amazing.  The coin purse is also a very small project that cannot be sewn on the sewing machine.  It is all hand sewn and has a zipper inserted into the top.

Tomorrow she wants to make a strap for it.  I love how these students take a pattern and put their own spin on things to make it just the way they want.
