Kid’s Classes | Bookmaking Fun Recap

Bookmaking Fun Class

In April we had an awesome Bookmaking Fun! kid’s workshop. Each child learned a bunch of fun folds and some simple ways to sew up a book. Personalizing and decorating the book covers was definitely the highlight of the day! I’m sad we were so busy playing that we didn’t get many pictures of the finished products.

Check instructions for a pamphlet stitch here and some great accordian fold books here and here.

Birthday Pary | Felted Dolls

Felted Doll Party

In March we were able to host a felted doll birthday party. Each girl was able to stuff and then decorate their doll. They learned how to needle felt wool roving to create their own unique doll! They made clothes from fabric scraps and tulle and had a blast giving their dolls fun accessories – sequin belts and headbands, purses, flowers, buttons, bracelets etc. We were cracking up at all the outfits!

Classes | Intro to Felting Recap

Felted Purse Workshop

We had a great time teaching this cute group of girls how to make felted purses! This intro to felting class covered the basics of needle felting and the girls got to raid Nancy’s stash of upcycled wool sweaters and wool roving. She even taught them her favorite trick – how to twist wool yarn into a perfect purse strap! We loved seeing all the fun designs and each gal got to take home a one-of-a-kind purse!
