We had our second day of sewing camp on Monday. We had 14 people here- 3 moms, 5 campers, and a bunch of brothers- and a little sister. The girls were working on a patchwork tiered skirt. First they needed to cut their fabric into strips and then they sewed the strips together.
|Some strips were 2.5 inches and some were longer. We left it up to the girls.|
|After sewing the strips together, the girls cut those into strips that will make the layers of the skirt.|
|There were all kinds of great fabric. I really like this batik design. This will be a great skirt!|
|As is R11’s trademark, she chose a turquoise and aqua theme.|
|They even ironed successfully…R11 has written a Code of Conduct (which I will have to share!) and she wants to add, “Never mess with an iron.” to it based on an early ironing incident at her sewing school.|
Our next date is scheduled for August 29th.We’ll work on the skirts again and see if we can’t finish them up. I have another set of pictures to share…for some reason Blogger won’t let me add them here. So, I give up! Two posts it is.
