Not a single April fool amongst the Gumnut Dollies group! At out last meeting, we had a theme of "Clowns, Fools and Jesters". Our fun creative activity was to make a little jester. Connie and I had a sewing morning and made the components of these little jesters from elinor peace bailey's pattern in "Pick Pockets Wearables". The first one I made was made with the arms, legs and bodt all from the same fabric, but we thought, why not, in true epb style, just make lots of arms and legs and bodies, and allow everyone to either "mix and match" or just "match".
Please bring for "show and tell" something handmade , celebrating the domestic arts - for example, a tea cosy,a pot holder, an apron, am embroidered doily or tea tray cloth ....... ?
