Canberra (Downer) Brown Owls - 21 March

bunny egg cosy, originally uploaded by two hip hippos.

Our next Downer meeting will be 1.30 pm to 4.30 pm Sunday 21 March.

Given that we are so close to Easter, some bunny-making might be in order. How about it? Here are a few ideas. We'll leave you to decide, and bring your own fabric and equipment as well for a fun afternoon of crafting!



Or you can make the bunny egg cosy in the photo up above - you'll need to bring 20 x 20 cm wool or felt or old blankets for the body, some fabric for the inner ears, some fabric for binding, and buttons, floss, scissors, needles and thread! Also Sew Hip Issue 4 if you have it - otherwise we have our copy you can refer to.

Other ideas
Sewing easter basket (bring a copy of Zakka Crafts if you have it, and make it from felt for easier hand sewing.

As always, please RSVP below to ensure your place at the crafting afternoon! Bring a plate to share for afternoon tea if you like. Looking forward to see you there.

Michelle, Bron, Naomi and Georgie xo

Without entering into any interesting details about wee child with tummy upset, am hoping that she is well enough that I can make that's a maybe yes or maybe no for me.
