First Craft Group = Success!

Yay! The first successful meeting of our craft group has taken place. We decided we were all going to work with felt....and this ended up being true for everyone but me. We had a group of 6 of us, which I think was a good number. Lydia ("co founder") picked up "communal" felt for all of us (ended up costing each of $2). And the rest of us brought, bits and pieces of stuff we had at home. Half of us had decided what we were going to make before coming to group (this worked in our favor). We had a pretty wide (well as wide as possible with 6 people) variety of skill level. Some were skilled seamstresses, while others didn't know how to sew. In the end we ended up with some felt jewelry, a (felt) mask, a place mat for cat food....and a cat tutu (I'm sure you can guess who's that was). If you're planning on coming to craft group, I would recommend: having a few ideas in your head about what you'd like to make (lord knows this probably isn't what your final project will be, but a great resource for others), bringing "base" supplies for your project, and be prepared to have fun :)
I hope I will see more of you at our next group!
PS-A picture of Ahi in her white with pink rose buds tutu will surface soon enough....
