Lisa & Nan then showed us how to make little flowers using the selvages that were torn off of new wool. Some were just coiled like a quilly and some were gathered. Leaves were added and a pin back could be used to wear it on a lapel.
This same technique was used to attach the little flowers to a branch and they ended up looking like hollyhocks - so cute!
Two finished versions of the little purses were brought to the meeting. We learned how to make these the last time we gathered. Cindy added cute little sheep to hers:
and Gayle did lots of flowers:
Pat is making good progress on her bag and is currently adding lots of bead embellishments to it.
This flower was made by starting with a circle of wool, then cutting it into a spiral using a pair of pinking shears (or a zig zag blad on a rotary cutter) and gathering it into a flower shape.
Angela got her selvage flower finished and was wearing it on her shirt.
The day was spent in good company. Our next event is the Maggie B workshop and there are still a couple openings available, so if you want to attend please contact Londi or Angela ASAP.
