Last weekend, the guru forwarded me a message from one of her friends. She was looking for a kid sewing camp for her granddaughter. After calling all the local shops and discovering that their camp was either not this week or full, I volunteered! I don’t usually teach kiddos, but Elisabeth was very anxious to learn more about sewing. I was in! It was dubbed “lee & thee camp”.
We needed to choose a project! I suggested a pouch or mini coin purse. Or maybe a dress? And she said…yes! Yes! And yes!! So we chose this free pattern from Anna Maria Horner.
We altered the pattern to be dress length. And we did seven rows of elastic instead of four. I might have to make one for myself!! Elisabeth was REALLY excited!
She learned proper pinning:)
The in progress version!
And she’s back for day two! We finished up her dress and started her American Girl’s dress.
Next up…the pouches!!
Look at that top stitching!! She’s awesome:) Cool fabric flower courtesy of my lesson from Chrissy last weekend.
I think she likes it!!
And the photoshoot! She’s adorable!!
We added a scrap so her doll dress could be a dress:) She didn’t have much fabric left from her dress.
Two pouches AND two dresses…not bad for two days!! She was a wonderful student; I think she learned a lot!!
Hopefully she has a lifetime of sewing ahead of her!
