The workshop was run by the lovely Caroline Marriott and she brought a selection of wools for us to use - which was exciting in itself! Caroline then talked us through the process of making a brooch using a rag rug technique.
Caroline recommended that any type of wool or soft fabric (e.g. t shirts) are suitable to use. You could let your imagination run wild with different colours and patterns. Think we'll be rustling up a couple more to give as Christmas presents!
We had a fantastic time learning this new technique and it's officially our new favourite craft!! Thanks for the inspiration and a great workshop Caroline!
Oh and by the was 2 years ago that we bought the Weaving Stick Dollies Kit from Caroline at a Christmas Craft Fair. Think we'll be back for more of her offerings in the future too!!
What a fun little project, and so good to use up scrappy bits and save them from the bin!ReplyDelete
We always love finding ways to use up scraps - seems a shame to throw away pretty things! xDelete
They are really cute and will make a fabulous little present too.ReplyDelete

What a fab tutorial! I've never seen anything like them and I can see there is potential for so much more! xxReplyDelete
