Tigers Rule!

You won't often see my sewing machine out on the dining room table, it's usually hidden away in my closet. It came out of retirement yesterday though to make scarves for my granddaughter's cheering team. They are the Sumner Tigers so we made Tiger Scarves. My DD cut 60"x7" strips of black and orange fleece and I sewed two black and one orange together down the middle. Then she cut fringe along the 60"sides. We made 22 of them - and the girls loved them! Here is one being modeled by little sister.

Of course they don't wear them when they are cheering - just something for fun to wear when they walk into the gym. They also have tiger bows in their hair and tiger bloomers.

Aren't they cute?

And flexible?

They were awesome!

Go Tigers! That is so awesome!
What great scarves! You should teach them all to sew and they could make those scarves to sell as fund raisers!

Congratulations!!! They do look cute and flexible and the scarves are great. Maybe I'll do something like that for Lindsey's swim team for next year.
