Sewing Party

As part of a school auction item, my fellow Sewing Club teachers and I hosted a sewing themed birthday party for 10 kindergarteners. We gave the birthday girl a sewing apron just like the ones we wear. I don't know if you can tell from the picture, but her cake was made to look like her. Each girl made 2 summertime projects - a sunglasses holder and headband. The whole thing was just too cute!
The sunglasses holder was an easy hand-sew project. For embellishments, we used stick-on flowers, hearts, sparkles, letters, etc. Trim was hot glued around the edges. Adults did the hot gluing, of course.

The best part was making the headbands with a machine! I used maya*made's tutorial for quick headbands. She's right - they are quick and were a perfect party project.

The favors were button candies from Bake it Pretty. As yummy as they are cute.
Happy Birthday, Meriwether!

adorable!! If you have to host anymore sewing themed parties Family Fun Magazine had super cute cupcakes in May for Mother's Day that you could modify to spell anything you want with skinny lace cany and a toothpick needle...they looked like the words were stiched with a basic running stitch in the frosting -- SUper cute and made me think of you ladies!! Looks like a great party. We may have to make some of those sunglasses cases.

It's funny that you mentioned the licorice writing - we did that for the end of sewing club party. I need to post pictures.

I love the idea of a sewing party. For my school's auction, I offered to make a child's drawing into an embroidered pillow. It was really popular. See the pillow at http://beinred.blogspot.com/2009/06/embroidered-kid-art-pillow.html.
