DIY Design Camp Day 1

What a great day! Camp was so fun! The kids were amazing and creative and enthusiastic - I feel really lucky to get to do this.
My 9 year old daughter can't fall asleep tonight because she is thinking about how to remake her clothes! She just came up to me and told me an idea for taking her fabric head bands and making them into shoulder straps for a top. Go for it!
We made garments out of a pile of random t'shirts I had. One of my favorite moments today (there were so many!) was when one camper decided to drape her design on a mannequin instead of drawing it, and when a 7-year old boy got to use the "machine with a knife!" It was also fantastic to see the kids develop their ideas and create them. I can't wait until tomorrow...
