Little Brownie Girl Scouts
My daughter is a Brownie and I was asked to lead the project to get the sewing badge. I saw in American Patchwork and Quilting (June 2005) this cute little yellow wool felt pincushion and thought that this would be a good project, as the girls are grade 1-3. So I made one to try out the pattern...mine is the red one. I reduced some of the stitching to make it easier and then cut out all the pattern pieces. We only had two sessions to sew and cutting would have been a whole session unto itself. So here are two of the hats the Brownies made. Some turned out better than others, but all the girls did a great job! They were very patient and did not stab themselves with the needles. I had them use big darning needles and six strand embroidery thread.
I am very pleased how these came out and so were all the girls. And everyone finished their hat during the second work session.
