Saviours of the Lost Arts Workshop

Last Sunday Pauline from Funky Friends Factory and Kylie from Voodoo Rabbit held a soft toy making workshop here as part of the Brisbane City Council 'Saviours of the Lost Arts' Program. 

Having fun adding the toy fill to Plattie the platypus

Finished and  just  so gorgeous. Wouldn't you love one of these?

See more of Paulines soft toy patterns at Funky Friends Factory 
and buy the fabric kits and patterns from Voodoo Rabbit

My after school sewing kids saw this photo and were jumping up and down with excitement at the prospect of making one themselves. So I will be teaching Plattie, Baby Rabbit & Silly Scrap Snake  in my school holiday classes.

Isn't this protea beautiful.
I had one just like it in my wedding bouquet in 1989. Seems an unusual choice but I was married in the tropics on a very hot & humid 36 degree summers afternoon (believe me nothing else would have survived)
Thanks Nat & Caryn for a lovely bunch of birthday flowers.

Until next time..............Keep warm  and keep sewing..........Linda
