This week for our YW activity we went walking; we only have 6 more Tuesday's until we leave for our pioneer trek, and the weather was finally nice-ish, so we all strapped on our hiking shoes and walked a little over a mile. Our little pioneer children did not sing as they walked however... we ate as we walked!! Nothing like ice cream to get the girls to come to a less than exciting activity.
Because our activity wasn't to exciting I will post a photo tutorial on how to create a bonnet pattern. Our Amazing Relief Society sisters had an Enrichment activity last month dedicated to helping the youth get ready for our Trek; there were about 7 ladies with sewing machines and they helped the girls make their skirts and bonnets!!
** If you wanted you could fold the paper you are using to make the pattern for the brim in half. Use the fold and draw the 5-1/4" long line AC right along it (step 2); after you have finished creating the pattern, cut it out, and unfold; wha-la you have one long piece. Then you would only need to cut one from your folded fabric and one from interfacing.
