Bring Your Own Crafts to the NYPL!
I’ve learned some cool things from Lena Corwin’s book, Printing By Hand. I already made one printing block following her directions.
From that block, I’ve printed a bunch of Crafternoon flyers!
But then again, I had so much fun learning from Kata Golda and her wonderful book Hand-Stitched Felt, I might just bring some felt and start working on my next felt stuffed animal.All I need to get started is a pile of felt and her charming templates.
When it’s all stitched up, you’ve got a precious hand-stitched toy. Yep, I made this one myself, and I’m darn proud of it.
Between craft projects? Fear not! We’ll have some supplies on hand from prior Crafternoons for quick pick-up crafts.
This event is FREE and held at the main branch of the New York Public Library.
