Young Women Torch Activity- Camp Craft

The other hat I wear is Stake Young Women Camp Leader (you could easily adapt this to a Seminary project/gift - I made
  "Plan of Happiness" pillowcases 
for my Seminary students a few years ago. Attach a note that says, thank you for choosing Seminary over your pillow each morning...)
Our theme this year was, Go For The Gold.
Each year, I look for a craft project that is meaningful, not just something to fill time or keep the girls busy. Ideally, the project is something they will use when they return home and it will remind them of their Camp experience.
The project  for this year could be done for any Young Women activity, not just camp.
I purchased plain pillowcases and had a T-shirt company print our Camp logo  (similar to the YW Torch logo) on them.
Each girl received a pillowcase and had the opportunity to paint it however she desired. The girls were encouraged to sign each others' pillowcases, many did, but not all.
I had enough pillowcases for each Ward to paint and sign one for their Bishop. We presented them to the Bishops on Bishops' night.
Many years, there are a few girls who are not interested in making a craft or participating in the art/craft project. This year, EVERY girl wanted to paint a pillowcase for herself.
As the photos below show, each pillowcase was painted to reflect the wide interests of each girl.

  1. Where did you have the logo printed at? I am looking at printing this image on some fabric to make a banner with the YW colors.
