The Olympic Torch passed through our community this week. It was an exciting event for our family and we loved all the celebrations around it.
In preparation for the event, I went shopping for Canada or Olympic clothing to wear along the road and we cheered for our local torch bearers. Many others had thought the same thing, because I was unable to find any touques or mittens. So I decided to make black fleece touques with a Canadian maple leaf, for all of us.
The torch has a long way to go to get to Vancouver yet, so if you are a sewer or quilter and you live west of New Brunswick, why not make Canada Touques for your entire family.
Here is my "Sew a Canadian Touque" Tutorial for you. I have incorporated some quilting techniques to give it a special oomph. If you make some touques, be sure to take a picture and blog about it, then leave me a comment. I'd love to see!!!
Enjoy the flame Canada. It is awesome to see.
And... More Quilts!
