So! You’re new to Brown Owls and someone has forgotten your name… Or you’ve been there for ages and people STILL get your name wrong! Well, we have the answer! Come and get your craft on with us…The delightful Hanna of hannakin (now at Rose Street market) http://www.etsy.com/shop/Hannakin will be taking us through a felt brooch workshop on Wednesday 21st September at 7pm at the Sporting Club, Weston St, Brunswick, Vic.
Felt pieces x Felt scraps
Buttons / Beads
Thread/ Embroidery floss
Scissors/ rotary cutter/ cutting mat
Brooch design you have in mind, or a template from the owl below
Brooch back if you have one, or a safety pin
You may want to follow this template from Bugs and Fishes if you feel you need a hand with an idea for a felt brooch, or you can design your own or improvise on the night! http://bugsandfishes.blogspot.com/2010/01/how-to-felt-owl-brooch.html
IMPORTANT! It is a good idea to bring a piece of fabric no bigger than 5cm across with your name embroidered, or appliqued, or written in fabric marker, so we can get straight to the brooch-making and you don’t spend the evening doing the name and then not making the brooch. Why not come along this Wednesday the 7th of September to embroider your name?
We may not get a whole brooch made in a couple of hours but you can always bring it along next time, and our trusty helpers will give you a hand if you need it.
We have a Pinterest group, http://pinterest.com/starbate/brown-owl-brooches/ with pictures of brooches to give you inspiration.
This is a free event, but Hannakin’s special creations will be available on the night for purchase, so bring your pretty pennies if you wish to purchase some hannakin loveliness.
The Sporting Club still has delicious tapas (4 for the price of 3, bargain!) and they even have half price cocktails! Bonza! What a night! Bring your friends!
