Sewing Camp Project #1: {Paper Bag Albums}

For my girls' first 'Sewing Camp' project, I decided to go with something easy...paper bag albums!  All they needed to do was sew one straight line (my kind of project!).  It was a good starting point, because they got to practice backstitching as well as sewing a straight line.

This one is my soon to be 12-year-old's.  Her paper bag album is all ready for the pictures we'll be taking at the big birthday party (which is this Saturday!).

Here's a few of the inside pages...

Didn't she do a GREAT job?!

All the kids loved sitting at the sewing machine when it was their turn to sew their bags together.  They can't wait for our next project!

Linking to these fabulous parties:

That is so cute! The great thing is that you can have a lot of the paper inserts already cut and ready to glue! Great job! (Took care of the double link - no worries). Love the new header... super cute as always! Have a great day!
