Youth Art Camp: Stuffed Pizza Plushie Pillows!
It’s a pizza party at River Arts! In this three day art camp for kids ages 8-11, we will learn the basics of sewing to create a giant, “stuffed crust” pizza fiber pillow! We’ll work with felt, thread, hand-stitching needles, and all manner of buttons, beads, and baubles we can use as toppings for our pizza.
Day 1: Drawing and cutting out a pattern for the crust, sauce, and batting filling. Work on pinning fabric together, cutting it out, stuffing, and stitching closed
Day 2: We’ll add the sauce (more felt), and cut out felt scraps for cheese, peppers, onions, mushrooms, olives, and any other toppings kids would like to add. Toppings will also be 3D – that means pinning them together, stuffing, and sewing shut all the shapes we make. We will also sew big red buttons on to be our pepperoni.
Day 3: Finish sewing our toppings, then work on attaching them to the pizza. Add puffy paint for parmesan cheese or red pepper flakes if desired. Then, celebrate with a PIZZA PARTY! On the last day of art camp, we’ll order in pizza to celebrate our creations!
