Canberra Brown Owls - Accessorise with us!

It's that time again Canberra Brown Owls! This month we are setting ourselves up for a glam autumn wardrobe with brooches...

It’s up to you what you'd like to work with: felt, ribbon, zippers, fabric, ricrac....there are a few links to get you started in the email. I'm already having a tough time narrowing down what I'd like to make; I might have to plan for several!


As always, look for inspiration via google (include "tutorial" in the search terms if you specifically want how-tos) and especially Flickr.

We will have a few tools available, like a hot glue gun and an iron and ironing board, but otherwise please BYO all your supplies and instructions. Brooch backs can be found in various sizes from the larger craft chains or from beading stores.

This month's meet is Saturday 19th March, from 2 to 4 pm, at the Downer Community Centre. Please RSVP in the comments. $5 for hall hire please and a plate to share for afternoon tea if you wish.


See you there!
