Then there was a Pop Quiz - a Lollipop Quiz. We asked the campers questions about what they had in learned Sewing Machine 101 - lollipops were rewarded for each correct answer. There were lots and lots of lollipops handed out!
After snack, we came back to attack the Blossoming Necklace project! We cut out our six fabric flowers. Then sewed a simple open ended fabric tube on the sewing machine. Next, we turned our tube right-side-out with the aid of a large safety pin.
Most girls made it to the turning step. But a couple of sneaky campers, who had to stay late to wait for their mom/ride (me!), made it to the step where they alternately tied knots and slipped large beads into their tubes. This gave their necklaces some nice weight and body.
