Sewing Costumes

Ashlyn's class is preparing to perform the play called "Anansi and the Moss Covered Rock". They asked for volunteers to help with the costumes and I let her teacher know that I could help out. She asked if I knew how to sew and if I would be willing to sew head pieces together for their costumes. I told her no problem and she let me know she picked the easiest costume to put together "Bush Deer". I used a pattern she had to sew an example of what it would look like. Then I helped cut out fabric. Ashlyn came home with a bag full of patterns that needed to be sewed. I sewed ten head pieces for her class. It was a lot of fun. Ashlyn helped me model my work when I was finished. All they need now are some finishing touches and poof they will have 20 Bush Deer running around on stage.
