|The first finished poinsettia- we did not have fusible webbing to attach the printed fabric to the petals first.|
|But some of the girls tried Tacky Glue and it worked fine- love this color combo and what a great button!|
|R11's brooch- I love the button in the middle. She forgot her printed fabric, but she was going to give it a go. There is hand sewing involved to make the leaves curved and then you use glue for assembly.|
|These are the materials we used minus the fusable webbing. I chose to go with the craft glue as well and just a little tip- for VBS I used the Discount School Supply craft glue which is Tacky glue in an old fashioned paste type bottle- with the stick and everything. You know how Tacky glue will gum up a squeeze bottle! The kids at VBS hate it so I use glue dots with them now, but it's perfect for home crafting. FYI- kids these days have issues with liquid glue! Too many neat alternatives for them to bother. What a shame!|
We watched the video together as we assembled to get started and it was great instruction. If we needed to see a part over we could do that later and one camper did just that. I'm looking forward to using this format again not only for Sewing Camp, but for other times as well. I love that we can access the class anytime and from our home. We can do the project along with the instructor or just watch to get an idea of what to do before beginning again later.
Next month we'll be having two Sewing Camp events- one is a snow and sledding party with the opportunity to make pillowcase dresses for girls in third world countries and the other will be a normal project day - the project remains elusive at this moment.
This has been a terrific opportunity to gather R11's friends for an activity they all enjoy. It's a much cheaper option for sewing instruction and her classmates are her friends. The moms are on board and it's been an activity so worth our investment of time.
