An Ace of Jesters

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".
Here's the result - most tried the "anything goes" approach with colourful success!
If you are thinking "that looks like fun", and  you would love to have a go, please come and join us at our monthly "get togethers" at the Newcastle Girl Guide Hall, Henry Park, Thomas Street, Hamilton South (Newcastle) 10am on the second Saturday of the month. Here's Jane with her first every little pin doll. 

Next meeting on 14 May will be "The Biggest Morning Tea " - a fundraiser for the Cancer Council.
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 ....... ?
