Innocent Village Fete: Day 2

11 Aug

At the Innocent Village Fete: Sunday 5th August

More pictures as promised from the second day in the Folksy tent.

Orange-headed penguin with pink front….

Fluffy cat head with big bright blue eyes. Meow!

Fluffy the cat head

This cat has got two sides: one pink and one purple. Looking very dapper with a pretty tie.

Turtles were the most popular plush to be made. I think this boy is pleased with his.

The first bunny to be made at any of our workshops and looking very cute in a blue jacket.

We ran out of stuffing towards the end of the day and in true re-use style we substituted the stuffing with shredded fluffy scrap fabric. Here’s some turtles hanging out together on the straw.

I am particularly pleased that we managed to get the fluffy legs out of this dog when we turned it inside out. I was worried we might end up with a 2-legged dog, but after a bit of effort and poking through, the legs appeared and completed this lovely fluffy dog.

I would have personally named this one the ‘Incredible Mutant Sheep’. It took the couple hours to make and I’m impressed with their patience and persistence to finish it. It’s huge!

Isaac and his penguin.

Starfish with suckers and pretty pink bird

This was one of the last creatures made with some striking red lips. Many eyes helps a good looking plush girl (all the better for seeing you with)…

    Those are really great hand made toys, my mum always got myself and my sister involved in making sock puppets etc and I think it is a great way to get kids thinking more about recycling and re-using materials.

    Great post, thanks.

    Wow great pictures! What kind of camera did you use by the way? Anyway, I love the two-sided cat, turtle, bunny and many more! It’s a good activity for kids to learn new great things and to meet new friends….

    Thanks! Sock puppets are great too, so easy to make.

    I use a Canon PowerShot G5 camera. It was a beautiful, sunny day at the fete so the photos came out great, I’m very pleased with them.

    I know the kids made new friends, plush friends as well as fellow crafters and it was great to see the kids rope their parents in too!
