Crafting with Kids

As many of you know my day job is as a High School Home Economics Teacher.  So introducing kids (and adults) to the world of all things fabric, buttons, ribbon, sewing etc is a huge passion of mine.  As part of the Joondalup Upmarket , Tied with Ribbon is running a FREE kids activity Table.  As you can see from the picture last Friday night we made Button Wreaths.  This week we will be making some Christmas cards with Buttons.  Come along and enjoy some Christmas craft for the kids and some shopping for the adults! 

Custom Order central here this week.  This Christmas Sack was made for a special little girl.  I was asked to leave the tree blank as Grandma will be sewing on some very special heirloom charms for Emilia that will be added to each Christmas.  A wonderful idea for a Christmas sack that will be treasured for many years to come. 

This towel was ordered to celebrate the arrival of a new nephew.  

Notebooks made to add to Christmas gifts for two young sisters. 

In this special box is a Birthday present I have made for an upcoming birthday for a little girl! Any guesses as to what I may have put inside?  I can't show you yet but soon.

And with Perth Upmarket on this Sunday at UWA - Winthrop Hall from 9am - this is what my sewing room looks like.  Lots of Christmas decorations and other goodies being counted and packed to take along.  I will be upstairs and make sure to check out the Market Guide which will have a special feature from me.  I will be posting this next week on my blog as my first Tutorial but get along to the market and have the first look.
