Crafty threading

My girls have enjoyed making something everyday as much as me I think this holiday. They have found craft kits from Christmas and many birthdays as we have de-cluttered the house this holiday. Today they had a go with the FAB FELT machine. I didn't have high hopes. These sort of things usually give great promise on the box but never quite deliver without massive adult intervention but this little machine is truly FAB.(at the top of the picture there)


We had a little jewellery making session today. Big Sis made felt balls and Little M threaded coloured beads.
 
 
She made the felt balls with the said FAB FELT machine and they looked really professional.
 
 
Might have to have a little play with that when she has gone
to bed later! Jo x

  1. Those are so cute. I really want to try making felted balls. There is so much you can do with them.

  3. My "sadness" is that though my daughter is arty and imaginative, she isn't interested in crafts. I try to encourage her and she loves looking at what I make, so maybe one day......Yours have started young. Well done.
