My kids craft group has a new name, It is called Crafternoons. One of Renees kids in the classroom told her she does crafts with her Nanna and this is what they call it and it has been voted by the girls and adopted. I will get them to design a brooch and we will make them.

This is the kit I have made for our Christmas In July meeting at A.C.D.A minus the stuffing. A pin cushion to put around your sewing machine. This has velcro that you can adjust before you sew the white strap. I will leave the velcro off for them to sew because not all machines have the same measurements. I chose red fabric for the Christmas theme. I have today made 40 kits. All they have to do is stuff the cushion and stitch that on and sew on the velcro to the strap.

The backing of the vliesofix has been taken off and the colours of the little miss characters have been added and the outlines are ironed on. Pins are left in place on the pieces that do not have the iron on stuff. They were then sewn into place and cut out.
The two girls had a great time.
The plan is for each of the projects to make at least 2 of each one and one is for them to keep and the other to be put into a Gift Box so that they have ready made gifts for birthdays and Christmas for best friends and family.
They are looking forward to next month. I cannot wait!

I had a wonderful day yesterday, 2 young girls came for our very first Crafting Day. They made their own little miss appliques and a felt rose brooch. I forgot to take pictures, Luckily the mum of one of the kids took some using her phone so I will post them when I get them. They had a wonderful day and got as much out of it as I did. They are looking forward to the next one. We are going to have out Crafting Day on the 3rd Saturday of every month. They both went home with completed projects and one to make until the next time we meet. The plan is for them to make two of everything, one to keep for themselves and one to put in a box for gifts for friends and family. Amongst all the things they want to learn we will be making felt, making paper, and learning to knit and crochet and making dolls clothes.

When I have done that I will iron on the heavy weight vliesofix.

The outer edges and the red of the pig tails will not, to give it the simple look as if a child has coloured in a page. the size is of the characters are roughly 35cm tall by 41cms wide, so they are quite large. the plan is to make characters for the back of the couch and 1 on the outer sides of the arms. I also plan on making 2 cushions to sit on the couch. these will be square. Fingers crossed!
The fabrics for the characters is polar fleece.

I enjoyed making these things and Renee was very happy too! It was a fantastic day that we both enjoyed very much.
