Today's activity is the wonderful art of pillow making. A pillow is a large cushion support for the head, usually used while sleeping in a bed. Making a personalized pillow will make a great gift for your girlfriend, or the Dempsey in your life.
Birju burst through the door waving his entry application, shouting, "I did it boys! I entered the community center sewing competition!" Seeing the confused look on our faces, Birju explained his plan for this week's hobby, sewing. For the previous four generations, Birju's family has sewn together a family quilt, and winning the competition would be a piece of cake. Unfortunately, Birju bailed out last minute by trying to convince us he had to "clean his mom's car in the middle of winter." Obviously a lie, we were still stuck in the competition. Patty suggested the easiest thing for us to put together is a small pillow. So here we go!
-2 pieces of felt
-Needle and thread
-Own a one-of-a-kind pillow
Hopefully you can follow along and make your own masterpiece! Oh, and we placed second in the competition. We also found out Birju entered a contest meant for young children...
Join us next week!
