My sister is studying Primary School Teaching, and is currently doing some prac work teaching a 5/6 class. She wanted to do a Mother’s Day craft with the kids, specifically small dreamcatchers. I received a message asking for help! She needed ideas on materials that would not cost much as she would be supplying the components. Continue reading
It’s been a while since I posted, so this is going to be rather photo-filled as I catch you up with what we’ve been up to!
My sister and her family have been visiting from Hong Kong for the past few weeks, so we’ve had some large family outings gatherings, culminating in a special party last weekend celebrating our parents’ 50th wedding anniversary!
I’ll start with the hat for the annual school Easter Hat Parade, even though it was a while ago now! Our son is in 6th grade, so this will be the last (I assume!) hat we’ll make 😦 And it didn’t turn out quite as well as we’d pictured it, but it was quite unique so I’ll share it with you anyway.
We try and match the hat to his current favourite things…but it was hard to come up with a new theme this year. After much thinking it dawned on me that he has been loving jumping on the trampoline – and so we decided to incorporate that into the hat, and have the Easter Bunny jumping and having his eggs bounce around too!
I love this tea (kitchen) towel that we made many years ago, and wondered why I hadn’t shared it here before now!
We made these to give to family for Christmas. They do take a bit of time and planning, but are definitely a one-of-a-kind item! And it can get a bit messy 😉
I used good quality vintage pillowcases. They were old family linen, but were sitting unused in my cupboard. I didn’t want to throw them out, so I up-cycled them!
(Please pardon these rather un-edited photos – I have a new computer and haven’t quite got the new photo editing system down pat yet.)
