The focus this week is on learning and improving machine skills, but there's nothing like having a little hand sewing project to travel with. We will be mixing it up all week to balance the need for quiet and peaceful control over stitches to the wild and exhilarating feeling of pressing a pedal and "driving" a project through the machine.
And shouldn't every little girl (and grown up too) have a sewing kerchief? This is a great first project to do at the beginning of every workshop. Just cut off the sleeve of a large t-shirt and slip it over your head. These functional no-sew accessories feel a bit like donning an apron before cooking... plus they keep those stray locks far out of the way.
I'll be sharing more from last week's earth*craft soon, but camp life has surely slowed my blogging down as I focus on each week's group of sweet girls.
