Kid's Camp, Pajama Pants!

 I taught a great group of girls a beginning sewing class yesterday....making pj pants. I had quite a variety of ages, but all were very enthusiastic!
 They had all chosen their favorite fabrics and learned a few basics about sewing with a pattern. I used Simplicity 2290, which is a great pattern to begin with since it's just one pattern piece. You cut one for each side, so you  only have 2 pieces to sew together. PJ pants have a looser fit so that's a bonus for young sewers, too.
 Aunt Nikki brought her niece to class and they both made pants.
 We did a fashion parade to show the shop employees their beautiful pants!
 They were suitable impressed. I lined them up for a group picture. Love those proud smiles!
Three of the girls are taking another Kid's Camp class next week....they will be making the Cobblestone Floor Pillow.

I taught the Wednesday night Sampler Pick group in the evening, so I had a high volume quilty day!

 Today I want to work on the new quilt and figure out where I go from here...having lunch with a friend and then heading to the Omaha Quilt Guild show this afternoon with friends. I love going to this show for the inspiration. Plus there will be some vendors there too....oh yea! My friends from Cut Up and Quilt were busy making up kits for the show when I was there the other day. If you stop by to see them, tell them "hi" for me! Hopefully I will have some pictures tomorrow. If you live in the area, it's a must see. It will be going on through Saturday.

Wonderful results! Jean, looks like some 4-Hers were in the class. Hope they use as a fair project! We promoted your classes with the 4-H newsletters. Thanks!

What a lovely class, and their pants are lovely too.
I think I should make my own too!
