Tonight I was making "camping pillows" for my kids. Basically, I'm taking an old t-shirt from each of them (they picked them out), sewing up the holes, stuffing it..and viola a "camping pillow" (takes up lots less space in the car and the tent!
So...then I got to thinking that it might be a cute idea for my girls. We're going to be working up to camping at the end of next year (at our Spring Camporee) so what would be better then to give them each a home made Camping Pillow. Now I could use some ideas....
What I've hashed through my head is to get a white t-shirt and put a troop picture on one side and maybe something about the troop (the Troop # or maybe some great one line "motto" or something). Then at our end of the year sleep over, give them out and then have each girl sign each of the other girls' pillows. I could even use fabric paints to put their names on them to personalize them.
Or I could get different color t-shirts, and just decorate one side with Troop info (I don't think I could put on a troop pic since the T-shirt is not white) and personalize it somehow. And then let them sign the backs.
Or I could make the pillows and have them decorate them themselves.
Or I could have them each draw a picture of themselves as a girl scout and sign their names, take the drawings, scan them into the computer put it on the transfer paper and then put that on the pillows. Put the troop number and year on it.
Any other thoughts? My mind is realing at the moment LOL!
Thanks for any input....Margaret
