TEACH YOUR CHILDREN WHAT YOU BELIEVE IN,
MAKE A WORLD THAT WE CAN LIVE IN..(Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young)
Well, that was another full week that shot by at Warp Factor 8!
My work desk looks like this...
I haven't touched it for a few days...no fabric has been harmed in the cause of crafting here...
But here, it has!
It's the Year 6 (10-11 year olds) school play next week and my machine has been over in the classroom doing sterling duty.
Whipping up a pink satin apron for Mama Bear! There were four sewing machines on the table..we let the kids have a day on them, making what they liked. Purses, ipod covers etc etc...they designed them first then made them from start to finish. The boys really enjoyed having a go..many had never touched a machine before..same for the girls too.
One girl brought her machine in and was excellent at teaching her peers in how to use it.
Here's one of the lads making a furry iPod cover as a prezzy for his sister. He had really good control!
Sue, the teacher (and my mate!) and I were making the trickier costumes. In this pic, Sue is making the Three Bears' heads complete with sticky up fluffy ears! The fabric was ever so soft and furry!!
Sue will be wearing this 'Creation'! Oh boy, did I have fun altering this dress for her. She has a rather fetching blue wig to go with it. I'm borrowing this for the disco at the end of term.... ;-)
Remember the knitted 'bikini' last week? Well, this is what that turned into...
It's sooooo cute! I love the frilly border, which looks tricky but was very easy to do. I'll definitely do this pattern again.
And another ATC from Kay (505 Whimsy Girl) arrived this week. Thanks, it's fab..another wonderful and cherished item to add to the collection :) Kay also sent me a card made from one of her pictures.....
Mr Goat...he cracks me up! Fab photo, Kay!!
