With the help of my friends, I co-ordinate "The Craft Group" which is a place for women to gather and do craft! We share a whole range of things, from craft to the small things that matter to us right up to understanding the whole meaning of life! I learn so much from everyone, I thought a blog would be the perfect way to record the memories!
The "Plus..." is all about extra bits 'n pieces that I have found and would love to show you. Welcome to our Craft Group. Please feel free to say hi, leave a comment or become a follower! Enjoy!
Remember the good ol' days of folk art?
I loved that phase of my craft life and miss playing with paint and brushes!
Well, Sharyn has not let it go and recently went to a class where she painted these cute teddy bears.
There are certainly still many Folk Artists enjoying their craft and making beautiful things!
Don't you think it is the cutest thing to actually wash all the kids soft toys and hang them on the line ?
I feel a bit mean if I hang them in a painful sort of way, like by the ear. But these ones don't seem to mind :)
The class painted their bears on these hessian bags which are huge (perfect for transporting a quilt project) and cost just $3 from Freedom! (The furntiture store).
I tried to find the bags on their website but to no avail. I think you have to pop into a store to ask.
Maybe they sell them as carry bags if you buy something like 5 cushions from them!
Oh, and here is a little pic of Sharyn working on a hand made quilt last year.
