The Plushy Pillow
I'm bringing out one of our favorite crafts from art camp, the plushy pillow. It's a great one because more than anything, it gives you a chance to do 3 important things:
1. Put favorite old T-shirts to good use
After chalking the line, I had the kids make cuts every half-inch or so along each side. Don't let them separate the 2 pieces after cutting. I learned the hard way that it can be difficult for them to line it back up when it comes time to tie the strips.
Note: You can cut off and throw away the excess corner pieces.
Here are a couple of photos I want to share from this project at Camp Create. The kids learned so much sewing on the buttons in 2018. We had them pick their own colors of felt to mix and match with the different buttons. For camp, they sewed on little pockets as well.
1. Reschedule the camp for later in the summer (possibly July or August)
2. If complete cancellation is necessary, we will take our cue from the airlines and create a credit system where your paid art camp tuition from this summer will be applied forward to one of next summer’s art camp weeks.
At this time, we are still keeping our registration open, so feel free to register without paying (and pay right before camp starts) if you’d like to reserve your child’s spot without having the financial commitment. To do so, just fill in the registration form and hit, "continue", but do not proceed through the payment portion. Your registration and spot will be saved.
If you are signed up for the newsletter, we will let you know if any plans change. We sincerely hope that we will be able to enjoy the fun and creative activities we have planned with your children in June!
Let us know how the project goes by tagging us on Facebook or on Instagram at: #campcreateartcamp. You can find and follow it here.
Whether I am painting custom artwork, creating a water colored logo for a client, or teaching art students, I hope to refresh and inspire others with my work. Read more ...
