No Sewing Machine is necessary for this party.
party idea - project runway

Supplies needed for this party:

  • A selection of different colored pashmina scarves
  • Needles for hand sewing, assorted sizes
  • Scissors
  • Pins
  • Felt in various colors
  • A fun selection of buttons and beads
  • Assorted ribbons
  • Two long rows of string lights to mark out the 'runway' area

Let each girl choose their color pashmina and decide what they will do with it.

Give them ideas. Show them that pashmina's can make wrap-around skirts (use buttons & ribbon loops for closures), head scarves/turbans, neck scarves etc.

They can cut the felt into shapes to sew onto their pashminas, it will not fray. Spread out the felt, buttons, ribbons, beads etc and let the girls begin to decorate their pashminas. Give them a set amount of time to create their masterpieces.

When their creative time is over, it's time to set up the runway area. If you have a roll out carpet, even better. Otherwise, just use the string lights to mark out a runway. Put some music on and let the girls walk down the runway whilst modeling their designs.

Let the girls vote on each other's pashminas. The girl with the most votes wins a prize. They all get to take home their pashminas.
