I love to inspire big and small to play with fabric so I was very happy when I was asked to do Christmas crafts with children last year! As much as I would have liked to, working on a sewing machine with 15 under school-aged kids felt impossible so I saved up all my scraps to make decoupage balls for the Christmas tree with the children. Sadly I didn't take any pictures then, but when I was back at the same Kindergarten last week I was wiser. This time they made Easter eggs and wreaths in decoupage technique. The kids were so clever, I was so impressed with their patience. The youngest boy had only just turned three and did so well! I chose the smallest wreaths I could find, they are around 15 cm in diameter (they do look bigger in the picture than they actually are).
Here is a happy school girl with her wreath from another Easter craft class I had last week. The witch is her own design! In May I will have my first sewing class for school kids, they will design and make their own monsters and/or mascots. I am really looking forward to it!
Spring finally arrived last week and with that some extra inspiration, I made two fresh cushions from Marimekko fabric for my sofa and took on a new crocheting project. I can't wait to get home and make another square for my alpaca blanket! *edit* Here is the link to the crochet pattern from Garnstudio that I'm using.
Have you been doing any Easter crafts this year?
