making ornaments with the Brownies
After the semi-disaster of the butterflies brooches,
I was eager to revisit sewing with the Girls scouts.
Making ornaments seemed like the perfect occasion to start anew.
With about 30 minutes for our craft, I came up with an easy project that
everybody would succeed at making, no matter the ability.
So here are the ornaments we made:
Before the meeting, I cut a lot of stars,
luckily I have a die cut for it!
I wanted to make sure we had enough color to please
all the girls, there is no crying in Brownies!
After choosing 3 stars (at least 2 different colors)
we made a star sandwich:
the middle star is slightly twisted and sticks
out of the 2 other stars that are perfectly aligned.
Then we stitched around the layered stars with
a simple running stitch, keeping everything simple!
At the top, we made a loop to hang the ornament.
This project was a total success,
all the girls made an ornament,
and they are turned out beautiful!
