Rosie the Riveter

This year Lily and I attended our area’s AHG Day Camp.  It was a great experience, as are most AHG events. Our theme was World War 2.  One of the local Patriots developed the camp. I learned so much about this time in history in preparing to lead on of the groups.

I have the Rosie the Riveter song stuck in my head. I had always seen the propaganda poster for Rosie the Riveter and her “Can Do” attitude. Little did I know that the term Rosie the Riveter first appeared in a song written by Redd Evans and John Jacob Loeb.

As I have said before, I love making SWAPS.

Rosie the Riveter SWAP

I spent quite a bit of time searching for a World War 2 themed SWAP with no success, so I know I had to create one.  I altered the iconic picture to read “AHG Can Do It”. Then I added a scrap of red and white dotted fabric (similar to the headband Rosie wears) and added a pin.

If you would like to make this SWAP, all you need to do is print this Rosie the Riveter SWAP on card stock and add a safety-pin and fabric swatch (optional).  Don’t forget to write your name and troop number on the back.

A list of my other SWAPS can be found in the American Heritage Girl heading at the top of the page.

    i saw this swap on pinterest and knew exactly where it was from! I still have mine. I have since moved from Jacksonville and troop 1412, but we are still in AHG. My daughter is a 2nd year Pioneer. This brings back sweet memories.

      Abbey, It is great to hear from you. I do agree, that was an amazing week. We too have left Florida and now live in Texas. My daughter is a 2nd year Patriot working on her Dolly Madison. It is amazing to see how much she has grown through AHG. Blessing to you and your family.
