Our travel to the U.S.A.
steps back to the roots of the country and the traditional crafts
it is known for. Quilting, doll making, Native American Jewelry
and more are presented in this historical program.
204-1 Corn Husk Dolls:
First introduced by Native Americans to the settlers, corn husk
dolls are fun and easy!
204-2 Native American Jewelry: The first inhabitants
of the United States provide the inspiration for beautiful jewelry
from beads and safety pins! No, safety pins weren't around then,
but it's an easy way to create authentic looking Native American
204-3 Paper Crazy Quilt: Get ready to go crazy with paper
and scissors to create a quilt as individual as you! Common
crazy quilts were made from pieces of exotic fabrics or leftover
scraps from clothing, but you'll be using all different papers.
204-4 Flower Press: Wildflowers are prevalent all over
the landscape of the U.S.A. Make your own press to preserve
flowers from your garden (or maybe your neighbors) and then
use them for delicate notecards and bookmarks.
204-5 Stencil Lantern: Join stenciling and tin for a
very traditional colonial craft. We actually use tin cans and
paint to make this "illuminating" lantern perfect for a midnight
ride by Paul Revere or maybe you!
204-6 Upside down Doll: In colonial times, an upside
down doll made from fabric scraps was a favorite toy. Using
foam and crepe paper you can convert your doll from Betsy Ross
to Betsy Metallica and everything in between.
