The Redcoats are coming! The Redcoats are coming!
And in full costume, too! With the search for Redcoats coming up dry (MANY thanks to each of you who sent ideas and sugguestions!!), we found bulk red fabric at a price we couldn't pass up -- and wonderful navy fabric on the Walmart sale rack. So...after placing an order for 300+ gold buttons and inviting our local sewing crew to join us for a day of sewing, we dug in for one very big sewing day!
Eleven redcoats all cut and ready for assembly!
Our smiling, diligent, sweet friends.
(Thank you all SO much for your many hours of work and fun conversaton!!)
The younger children had all sorts of adventures during the day -- including painting props and decorations for our upcoming Prairie Bible Camp. Such helpers!
