Camp: Day 5

Our last day was a Fabric Remix Challenge and Runway Show.  The kids used recycled fabric to create original projects.  To get into the mindset, we watched this great recycled fashion show by high school students. 
 The kids had about an hour to sew using materials such as towels, pillow cases, lots and lots of potholder loops, packing materials, old clothes, and shelf liner.  All of these materials were found in the various closets and cubby holes that I have materials stashed in around the school!

The runway show was a big hit.  Dancing, cheering, lots of popping of packing materials!

Camp Reads:
Joseph Had a Little Overcoat by Sims Taback
I Had a Favorite Dress by Boni Ashburn
Both books deal with making something new out of an old garment.
