Amy from During Quiet Time already shared some of the FunStitch Studio Summer Camp projects her kids have sewn up this summer. Remember those great Cat + Mouse Camper Projects? Timothy moved to some work on the sewing machine next, inspired by the FunStitch Studio title A Kid’s Guide to Sewing by Sophie Kerr, with Weeks Ringle and Bill Kerr.

Amy writes,

    “Timothy chose the ‘simple pillow’ project. It might have had something to do with the fact that the photo in the book featured a boy which is somewhat rare in sewing books… Timothy has only used the sewing machine a few times. We have worked together in the past to make a bag and a couple of pillows with handsewn closures, but never an envelope closure like this one. And this time, he wanted to work pretty much alone. I helped with the cutting but he did his own ironing, pinning and stitching…

    He’s thrilled with his pillow cover and loves the fact that it is washable so he can use it and it doesn’t have to be purely decorative like the ones he stuffed and hand-sewed closed before.”
