Crafternoons are Good Fun

What happens when 6-8 11 year old girls get together for an hour or so of little-felt-animal crafting? Not all that much in the great scheme of things, but we sure have fun.  Last week we made little pandas with flat arms – today was stuffed monkey day.

A little bit of Japanese craft culture for the Grey Lady.

It teaches you how to create your own “Felt Mascots”. Today it also let a group of girls be creative while getting to know each other better. We’re not charging anything for Crafternoons… I thought about it briefly but the materials are inexpensive and the experience is, as they say, priceless.

We’ll do another Crafternoon next Friday, March 27th, but then I think the soccer season is going to take our leader’s attention. We’ll probably sneak them in whenever we can though, because getting together for no reason and sewing felt stuff is good fun.

If you know a crafter in the age range, bring them on down. It’s free and we’re friendly. – wendy h.
