Kids Can Sew Camp

Olivia has officially completed a week of Kids Can Sew Camp at The French Seam in Stuttgart. And from what we can tell, she had a great time!

I intended to get pictures of her in action this week, but she was already done every time I got there to pick her up. Mary Ann got this shot of her yesterday, though.

SC1

On Tuesday she worked on learning the basics of machineSC2 operation. She sewed lines, corners, etc. on paper both with and without thread, and then used scrap pieces to practice on the serger as well. Then on Wednesday she started working on her bag. She finished her bag today and then made a little cosmetic bag to go with it. She learned how to work both the sewing machine (with different styles of stitches) and the serger. She loved the serger. I have one, but I’ve never been able to figure out what I’m doing wrong with it. I need to get it back out and figure it out so she can teach me how to use it! Smile 

Here are close-ups of her projects…

The cosmetics bag (and she will quickly tell you those are Ouachita colors, not LSU colors, thank you very much).

Definitely a full and fun week for our big girl!
