Something I don’t regularly share on this blog is that I also teach sewing, weaving, knitting, crochet and jewelry making. I host birthday parties and Girl Scout events and they are so much fun! Yesterday I hosted a birthday party for 10 girls and their projects came out fantastic.
This is the birthday girl and her older sister. The birthday girl picked the project (a panda), but she wanted each invitee to be able to customize parts of their panda. I cute extra pieces in colorful fabric and let them choose and create to their heart’s content!
This picture doesn’t really do this panda justice. Notice the little buttons added to the ears? Those are earbuds and the strings are the wires going to a (to be made of cardboard at home) cellphone. I thought that was super creative!
Blue eye patches!
The party goers take a break about half way through for a snack and to sing “Happy Birthday” to the birthday girl. They also had another song, “Hoppy Birdie” complete with hand and body movements that was so very cute!!
Each bear was able to be personalized with embellishments of different colors.
The party was a huge success and every girl completed her bear!
