Learn to Sew: Doll Quilt & Pillow

Doll quilt & pillow (fits any 18” doll such as an American Girl Doll or other brand, or a stuffed animal).
Campers will design and sew (both by machine and by hand) a doll-size 3-layer quilt plus matching, reversible pillow. This camp is quite popular so I design a new doll quilt each year just for these campers. You can never have too many quilts for your dolls or stuffed animals, right?
 
The first day of camp is a field trip to a local fabric or craft shop to pick out supplies, via a Woods Charter bus. The second day is learning how to safely use the sewing tools we’ll need to complete the project(s), including pins & needles, scissors, and iron, then learning the basics of how to operate a sewing machine, including tips and shortcuts to make sewing easier and more productive. Part of day 2, day 3, and day 4 are designing and creating their project(s), with final touches added day 5, ending with a parent-invited show & tell the last 15 minutes of camp to show off not only their projects, but also the new skills they have learned.

Your child will design and sew a reading pillow with pockets to hold their favorite books.

If we have time, they'll brainstorm and sketch their dream reading nook.
