Since the girls and I wanted to soak up the last few rays of summer sun, we moved the FunStitch Studio Camp outdoors.
We explored the book Fabric Paper Thread by Kristen Sutcliffe. Each girl picked a project and went straight into action!

Lady A was inspired to put her yarn skills to the test by the leather bracelets. However, she wanted to mix things up and do them her way. So, she grab her ear buds and started working away. Her secret tip is to attach the project to a clip board. This makes the project super travel friendly.
Missy S wanted to get messy and picked fabric painting as her project. We pulled out the washi tape, circle stickers, painters tape and went to town. The best part of the project was the reveal. We could see the pattern come to life as we peeled away each sticker. My best advice on this- make sure to really press the stickers in place. There were a few spots we could have done better but in the end, we love the way it turned out.
The girls and I enjoyed being a part of the FunStitch Studio Camp series with Sew Mama Sew & C & T Publishing this summer. I am excited to announce that C & T Publishing will be sending one lucky fan a copy of Fabric Paper Thread by Kristen Sutcliffe.
