I think this is my first post here...These are the cards and bandanas I am working on for my gumboot dance troupe leaders. (Gumboot is a dance that originated in the mines of South Africa during apartheid) We wear bandanas when we perform so I got a lot of practice doing rolled hems and sewed up a bunch and stenciled africa (where gumboot started), Vancouver Island (where we live), and the stickman gumboot dancer from our t-shirts. Hope you like!

That's really cool!
I know I'm commenting about a month after your post, but I just found this community, and I wanted to tell you: this March I was working in the library, trying to finish a research paper I didn't have the time for. I was near a window looking out towards the fountain, and your group (unless there is more than one...) was out there practicing (it was the day of the student elections, I think). The dancing was great to watch while I was working, it cheered me up. :) Thanks.
