OPAM -August Round Up.

These little cuties are now numbering  in at 14 and they have been a lot of fun to make. Deciding which colours to put together and making lots and lot of teeny weeny pompoms!!
I have had fun,, can you tell?
A look at some Textile Club makes for next term, such as these felt fortune cookies for next January.  
My entry for Le Challenge in September (Yep I am actually ahead of myself here!)
I shall reveal this next month on the 15th.
Then some of the above was turned into.........
Book marks!  I made some a few years ago and gave them away.  Again I am looking for little activities for the, yet to start, Textiles Club.
These are quick and fun to make, using up scraps from other projects and learning skills such as cutting, pinning, hand stitching and of course sewing on a button.
I weighted to ends of the bookmarks with a button as I felt that the last ones I made needed something more substantial at the other end of the ribbon.
The pink flower version is going into my teaching planner for the new term and the round one is going to be my teaching example.  This will be the first activity that we will start with in a couple of weeks time.
I think that is everything for August.
How did everyone else do?  With such a fantastic summer here in the UK perhaps the number of finishes might be a bit down over here this month.
If you stop by please say Hi as it has been so quiet round here.  Massive pageviews but no comments.?

Hello Indigo!!

Sorry for the late response to your message - time is running away from me at the moment! I have an email button on my blog sidebar if you'd like to drop me a line there? - it saves us having to post our email addresses here in comments boxes!
Love what you have done with those bookmarks, very clever!

I love the little flowers on the hats. I've done ten so far. The bookmarks look wonderful. I'm sure they'd be a great project for your textile class. I think lots of bloggers have been out enjoying the sun. Now back inside as it's raining :) Have a lovely weekend.
