Kid's Camp ...let's make pillows!

 We had lots of fun yesterday making Cobblestone blocks during Kid's Camp 2013. I had three of the girls from last week's PJ pants class, so they are starting to feel like old pros. They made good use of the design walls during class and were excited when they could start putting up blocks to admire!

 Sometimes the machines came unthreaded, or otherwise acted up, but for the most part they cooperated nicely!
 Kelsey was so excited to have her pillow top ready for the back while Jordan patiently waited for her mom to fix her thread issues!

 They loved their pillows, and were practicing laying on the floor with them at one point!
 They all chose their own colors and were so proud of what they had accomplished. Courtenay had done some sewing on a Quilts of Valor quilt, so had some experience.
 Maddie made this pillow for her older brother since she had made the PJ pants for herself....isn't she a sweetie? She told the story of how they went to pick out the fabric and he told her she didn't need to make it for him. She could make it for herself. But then he saw this music fabric and he loves band, so he picked it out. She said, "I guess he wants a pillow after all!" I think she will have a hard time parting with it!

 I could easily fabric shop with these girls, they all like the same fabrics as I do!

 Amanda picked the colors of her room for her pillow. She also wore pink to class!
They were excited and happy to finish their pillows. Three of the five girls will be taking their projects to the fair in July.

that looks like everyone had a lot of fun.
I wish we had something like that when I was a kid.

That is really adorable.
I like you way to make some home made pillows. Can you tell us that can I use some goose down fillings in my pillows.
I really want to have some pillows with goose down filling in my home for the better comfort.
