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

14 May

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!

Our week in review

1 Mar

This week has been great!  We worked on so many different projects and had so much fun!

We had lots of finishes!  Bean bags, pin cushions and a zippered heart pouch which actually has a zipper on the back as well!  Very creative!

There was knitting, weaving, cross stitch, sewing and crochet happening!  And…

something that really makes me happy.  These sewn projects were all made by one of my students all by herself at home!  How fantastic is that?!!

Lots of bags and a hanging organizer!

Letters, a mobile and a pompom!
