Sewing Camp

Last Tuesday I started a sewing camp. It is pretty fun actually. Once you get in a cycle, it's not that bad! The very first thing that I made was a pin cushion to put all my pins in. Oh migosh. The ending result for that was very ugly looking. I took my sewing machine and the crappy looking pin cushion home to show my parents. I left the pin cushion at home. I didn't want to look at it at camp. Anywho, the second thing that we made was a bag that was draw-string capable. It was fun to make and I was the first one done! On my bag was some embroidery work of the initials of my middle name. The letters are A and M. The next project that I worked on was another bag. But this time, a reversible one! I worked the rest of Tuesday and all of Wednesday to finish the bag and I am so proud of it! I used a really pretty pink pattern for one side and a pretty looking blue pattern for the other side! I even made the straps. And then, after I made mine, all of the other little girls started copying me; wanting to make bags of their own. It was sweet.

But while I was working on finishing my bag on Wednesday, the rest of the class were starting on their pj bottoms. So I was behind. That didn't bother me any. I didn't mind it at all that I was behind. So it was Thursday when I started MY pj bottoms. But that was the day that everyone started their dresses! Ok, I was getting a little bit frazzled. But I told myself to calm down. I wasn't going to rush something just because I was behind. And I didn't. I took one step at a time, and eventually, I finished my pj bottoms on Friday! Yahoo they were done! And, the best part: They had pockets! I was the only student with pockets in them! Hehe! When I was finally done with the project I decided that I would take the sewing machine home and work on something there. I decided to make a hanging pillow thing for my friends girlfriend. I had the fabric embroidered on to get the letter A for her name.

So on Saturday, I started the pillow; and also on Saturday, I finished it! I even stuffed it all by myself too! Well, my mom helped me a little with the corners and spreading out all of the stuffing. I had a well rested weekend. If you consider cleaning your room in three days and having your guy friend over for dinner well resting. But I liked it. The whole weekend I mean.

So here it is, another week of sewing camp ahead of me! And I'm looking forward to it! And guess what?!!? I started my dress today! It's white with little blue flowers all over! And it has pleats in the front too! I'll be so excited when I am done!

And guess what ELSE?!!? I will post pics of all my creations, excluding the pin cushion, when I am all done with my dress! That way you get to see everything in one post!
