Clothing!

Hairbands and scrunchies!

Lots of bags and a hanging organizer!

Letters, a mobile and a pompom!

Lots and lots of stuffies!

We had a fantastic time!  Now it’s on to our fall schedule which starts the week of August 20th.  I can’t wait to see what creative goodness is made in our classes!

Third Week Camp Highlights

1 Jul

We are currently entering out 5th week of camp!! I am really behind on the blogging front, but we are having a fantastic time at camp!  Here are some of the highlights from sewing camp during week three:

There were lots of tote bags made.  Each one turned out so well!

Lots and lots of pillows were made.  Some were quilted and some had embroidery on them.

Stuffed animals, pillow cases, and freeform dolls with their own set of clothes!

This sewing camp decided they wanted to weave so we set up the looms for them!!  What a fun time we had!  Lots of scarves, table runners and even a pair of wrist warmers!

Head bands and scrunchies!

And so much more!!  Our sewing camps are so much more than just sewing.  They are about exploration, friendship and fun!
