Blogvent #20&21 : Wrappers Delight

Bit late with my advent blogging…. but on Thursday was my crafty evening at the amazing Outlaws Yacht Club in Leeds…..

20121208-154548.jpgI was super nervous!! I’ve not done a craft event before…. but I packed up half the contents of my attic crafty room and set them up in a corner of Outlaws…

Oulaws is a great, chilled place for socialising….. they have a knitting club, vegetarian running club :), exhibitions, super nice styling, lots of games, a kids graffiti wall, a magic till…. as well as lovely food, cake, bar and lots of good music…. all round win…..

So we set ourselves up in a corner and got crafting….

it was a nice mix of some of my friends who’ve been interested in having a crafty night together and a great chance to meet new people too….

I’d wondered about doing set tutorials on things… but decided instead to take a few things for inspiration and just let everyone get on with it…. an all you can craft buffet! :)

We made pompoms using our fingers….

an easy way of making pompoms that I’d forgotten about until recently…. and lots of little creature decorations appeared :)

We stitched padded decorations….

  1. Craft Monkey put on a fine buffet of crafting treats! She brought along some gorgeous fabrics, ribbons, tapes, buttons and ideas for us to craft with. And she helped us with our designs and to smooth out any frustrations as we experimented with how to realise our crafting masterpieces! I recommend this event to anyone who enjoys crafting in a relaxed and informal group of inspiring people.
