After giving Kristine Lendved 73 t-shirts to make into her fabulous hats, that left 358 garments. I designed and created a back-to school project for the kids at St. John's Lutheran Church. The theme for Rally Day is "All Are Welcome, All Together". It celebrates the inclusivity of our community, and how we can accomplish much more learning (and fun) in a group environment.
Using the light-colored and white pant legs, I cut rectangular shapes, then stitched a strip of brighter colored fabric as a sleeve and tie to secure it to a bamboo stake. I used approximately 6 pairs of pants and pieces of 3 shirts for this, and kept all the scraps in a bag to be used in the future. Foam letters glued right side down to a piece of insulation made easy stamps. I printed a few so the kids would have an idea of what to do and packed up all the supplies needed. Two of the Sunday school teachers took over from there. They were placed on the Church lawn that Sunday, and after service, each child could pick their own flag to decorate. The kids printed the flags that Sunday, and will put them out on the lawn next Sunday.
