We were working on Proddy Rugs - being taught by one of the students, Ann. Given that she had made this she was deemed to be well qualified!
It's made from 3.5" strips of fabric, so is about 1.5 inches thick - really lush and tactile
It even looks fab from the back!
So we've all started - lets hope ours look as good! We've got an old fashioned Dolly Peg - albeit slightly modified - as our proddy
We also made some plans for the next few sessions: February and March will look at Cathedral Window blocks: the real way, and the easy way
May will be a felted fairy (dry or needle felting)
with help from Kaye, and this book
While June will be felted flowers (wet felting)
And in July we are going to have a go at painting hessian bags, like this one that Stephanie brought in:
And finally a few more photos - a bit of Show and Tell from Christmassy making: (well done ladies)
