As mentioned in a previous post our Branch of the Embroiderers' Guild started a JETS (Junior Embroiderers' and Textile Students) group at the end of last year. We meet in my local Parish Council Hall and the group is growing steadily. The Parish Council hold a Summer Fete each year in July so the local community can get together and have some fun. I thought this would be a good opportunity for the JETS group to be involved in the wider community and also raise some funds. We plan to offer an activity for anyone who would like to try their hand at stitching, kits to sew and small stitched items for sale.
We were lucky enough to be gifted lots of fabrics, threads and embellishments when the group started. So we have plenty of resources for the students and enough left over to make kits and items to sell. Among all the resources there was a large bag of small felt squares, which were left over from a Guild activity last year. I set myself the challenge of making something with them........
So here are my Five Crazy Creatures for Five on Friday!
1. Funky Chickens
2. Sweet Hearts
3. Wise Owls
4. Bouncing Bunnies
5. Pretty Puppies
They are all little brooches and will hopefully raise a few pennies for our group.
The plan is to be able to buy some art materials and a junior sewing machine in the future.
Now, there is a huge bundle of net fabric,
what could I make with that............??
