Sewing Camp!

5 Jun

Our first camp of summer is in full swing and we are having a blast!!!  We already have lots of finished projects:

 

Pajama Pants – love those little hedgehogs!!

 

Bracelets, Scrunchies and Head Bands!

 

Pillows with applique are really popular.  The pillow with the hedgehog applique….those are actually pockets!img_6360

We also have weaving and crochet happening in camp.  Students really do get to choose their form of fiber art!

 

And lots and lots of creativity!  I can’t wait for camp to start today to see what these students will come up with!

Monday Funday

Class on Monday was super fun and full of creative energy!

Our beading/jewelry making station is still seeing lots of action!  I love what these students are making!

Isn’t this narwhal amazing?!  I love that creative eye!img_6178

We are weaving up a storm.  This scarf is almost finished!  It will come off the loom next Monday.

The studio is always  a hive of creative energy.  Everyone choosing their own projects and bringing them to life!  For me, there is no better job to have or place to be!
