On Friday, November 4th we will be hosting a service learning event for participants at the Utah Association of Family and Consumer Sciences Fall Conference. Participants will have the opportunity to use scrap fabric and miscellaneous notions to create stuffed animals for children at Primary Children's Medical Center! Each participant will also tell the story about their stuffed animal so the child can get to know the animal that was created by hand for them! Here is the poster for the event and the tutorial for creating your own animal applying the elements and principles of design!
