The Handcraft Fair we had earlier this year in the Spring worked out so well, we decided to have another one for the Holidays. It turned out to be another great event with so many different creative handcrafts.
My son made homemade artisan bread - crispy crunchy crust, and oh, so soft inside. You must try the recipe yourself - it's so easy to make and wonderfully satisfying.
My daughter embroidered felt ornaments
My son made sculpey necklace ornaments with imprints of leaves, shells, and berries
And he tried his hand at a bit of sculpting
Look at what a four year old can do. I drew this pattern from Doodlestitching onto the fabric, put it in an embroidery hoop, threaded a dull darning needle, spent some time showing her how to stitch in one side and out the other, and she was able to stitch the pattern really well. I will say here that her personality is one of order and perfectionism. She likes to organize everything and is very meticulous about lining things up and things of that sort, so her personality probably lended to the embroidery. She made two - one for her grandma and the other for her friend.
Here are some of the other things we saw today
And last but not least, a little violinist played for us.
We'll be having our next Handcraft Fair in the Spring, hope you'll join us!
