On Monday night this week, we had our first meeting of the Brunswick Kinder Craft Group at my place in Brunswick East. It was great to meet other crafty mums and we have some great makers who will have some amazing crafty items for sale at the Brunswick Fete.
Some of the ideas we discussed were making costumes – superhero capes, dino tails, fairy skirts (no sew and sew
). We also discussed recycling fabric from Savers and Op Shops into dresses, shorts, tops. We sorted through some old stock from previous craft stalls and will upcycle in the next few months. We also discussed dyeing fabrics and creating small things with paper. Here are some pictures of a dress I’ve been making from an old tablecloth.
A great suggestion was to create paper lanterns and paper balloon balls.
I encourage other parents who are interested in attending upcoming meetings to let me know by emailing Celeste – firstname.lastname@example.org
Our next meeting will be in June. That meeting will focus on making things with paper.
I have put together a list of basic things to bring along for a card making night and some images of the sorts of things we could learn to make. I will purchase some stock cards and gift tags with our Spotlight Donations card (thanks to Spotlight
for the $20 donation).
