Girl Scouts

Are they having fun .... absolutely. The girl made 12 tote bags. The bags were filled with items like shampoo, toothbrush, toothpaste, books and the like. The bags were donated to a local children's organization.

Yes that is a paper towel. Only one (1) of the girls knew how to sew with a sewing machine. I forgot to bring scrap fabric so I drew some lines on a paper towel for the girls to practice sewing. It worked out great.

Time for a little break from sewing and card making. Yummy.

Here's a close up of a couple of the tote bags. They made 12 in total; 6 girlie ones and 6 for boys.

Now time to fill the bags up with all the goodies. Very important to make sure girl totes only have girlie items and boy totes with only boy items.

Cards were also made for the local Senior Center who deliver meals to the homebound. The cards will certainly brighten up the lives of many seniors.

Great Job girls. THANK YOU

Hooray for the girls and their wonderful gifts to others. They all deserve a round of applause.

Great job. I used to be a Girl Scout. And for awhile my Mom was the leader. Lots of fond memories.
