Children’s Birthday Party Projects
Birthday party project descriptions:
All Ages (5 & up)
Felted Paper Weight- Children will select their own colors of wool roving and yarn and will create a decorative paper weight while learning the process of wet felting and having fun at the same time!
Dying to Weave! – First we will hand-dye yarn with Kool-Aid! Then the kids will create a small weaving while learning “over-under-over-under!”
Sock Snowman with Finger Knitted Scarf- A Snowman will be created complete with a clay carrot nose. Then the kids will learn the skill of finger knitting a scarf to keep “Frosty” warm!
Woven “Scandinavian” Felt Heart Basket – cut red and white felt into two halves of the traditional Scandinavian woven heart basket design. Weave them together and decorate a beaded wire handle.
Ages 8 & up-
‘Nuno’ Felted Mini-Scarf – Silk gauze fabric and wool roving will be laid out and a process of rolling and thumping will be used to create a wet felted light weight scarf that is beautiful and practical. It is a fun and magical project!
Felted Beads- Using wool roving we will create a felted snake or cane which is then cut with a bread knife to create a collection of 10-12 beads perfect for creating a piece of jewelry or to sew onto a jacket, purse or pillow!
Sewing for your 18″ Doll– Create this lovely cape and bonnet for your special Doll. You can bring her to the party too! We will show you and your friends how to cut out, sew both by hand and machine and embellish your special fleece cape design.
