I will have to move a number of things over here to showcase the things kids have made with me. Here is Mya with her dad’s pillow… 9 years old and sewing zippers! 🙂
This is Evan and his pickle… all his idea, I just helped with the production.
This pickle has a 7″ zip in the back and a hidden pocket that is holding 11 baby pickles. Dills, I think.
This same kid came up with this last summer… we put it all together with 5 babies in one afternoon. 🙂
And Evan’s first creation… a lovely fleecy banana. I am very proud.
It’s all about the process….
A little hand sewing and voila! A banana pillow is born.
Our first project together was in the repair of Evan’s baby quilt… disintegrating before his eyes. He was pretty happy with the fix. (April 2014)
In 2015 Banana Camp was held: and 3 creative souls spent a summer week with me making things. Here are some highlights.
Clearly, the kids in my life know about bananas… the twins even got in on the act.
Sergers are fun too… and workable. Ben is only 6 here, making Valentine placemats for his family
Jam Camp with Ben. Strawberry Rhubarb…. from the farm to labelling…done.
Charity Bear from Shiny Happy World pattern: a perfect kid project.
Jam Camp with R and R
Making the angry birds makes us happy
We have made many felt books… so easy and so fun
I’ve yet to have a kid make one of these, but it is a very suitable project. Contrary to popular belief, though pins are sharp, kids are generally pretty careful with them. There has not been a child enter my house who hasn’t loved to rearrange the pins in Paco.
Body art doesn’t involve sewing, but it’s still pretty fun.
