After dinner was over the "Queen" decreed that there would be a challenge amongst the tables. There was one teacher at each table and she became the CEO and she decided who would be the buyer, the runner, the sewers, etc. We were given a large bendi doll and the buyer, who was Pam, had to go out and "buy" with special play monies the materials that we needed to make our dolls. Leslie Molen was our CEO and she decided that we would make a teddy bear out of our doll. It was crazy with 2 or 3 people working on the little bear at one time. We only had a certain amount of time to finish the doll. We had made a little dolly for our bear to hold and then at the last few minutes we had another challenge to make a tiny bendi doll to go with our doll. So we had made the large bendi into a teddy and a small doll of fabric for the teddy then had to make another doll out of a small bendi. It was crazy! But so much fun.
This is a picture of our teddy and friends on display after the banquet and for the rest of the event. The dolls that were made were donated to a children's charity. There are pictures of a few more of the dolls. Unfortunately, I wasn't very good at taking all the pictures that I wanted to take. I was busy making dolls, socializing and shopping!
