It is finally the last week of camp at the Textile Center and I thought it would be fun to give a shout out to some blogs and books that have helped us out this summer.

Pippa & Rascal Softies Pattern – These cute little stuffed animals were the jumping off point for 2 classes in designing their own stuffed animals.  It was great to be able to show them pictures and the pattern pieces that went with them and the simple rectangle body shape is easy to make in to almost any animal.

Cute Stuff by Aranzi Aronzo – This one has been a favorite for years.  Great simple projects that can be sewn by machine or by hand and the instructions are easy for kids to follow on their own when they have finished something early and need another project.

Sew What Skirts - Another perennial favorite.  We have done the a-line and wrap skirt this summer.

101 One Yard Wonders - You already know I love this one.  This is the “go to” book for a couple of classes where we just have the kids show up with a yard of fabric on the first day and then pick something from the book.

ZipIt.etsy.com – My absolute favorite place for zippers for the ever popular zipper bag project.  Her prices are amazing.

Knotted Headband @ You Seriously Made That? – We loved this project.  We sewed the ribbon on the ends of ours (I have a rule about no glue in my classes), but the girls loved them.
