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.
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.
