Camp Blankets

We made up our camp blankets today.

We cut two pieces of fleece for each girl.  One in Sparks Pink and one in Girl Guide Blue.  We took the blue side to an embroiderer and had their names embroidered on with gold thread.  Then we sewed around the outside, then cut the outside into strips (for the girls to tie together).

It creates a great place to sew on all those fun crests that the girls get, and on the other side, a great place to sew on their sashes, so that they don't get lost after their Sparks year.  It's a great way to keep everything together.

We had some great mom helpers today - it made tying go so much faster!  It let us have enough time to pull out our campfire inside and sing some campfire songs.
