Felt Creatures

This project was created by two of our summer volunteers. They found the craft in a book called The Big-Ass Book of Crafts by Mark Montano. They drew posters and advertized, made a sample, got materials out, and assisted people who were new to sewing. Participants made bears and bunnies, as well as earless creatures that looked like gingerbread men. It was a fun time for everyone, and it gave the activity leaders a sense of pride and ownership that is only formed by creating your own activity. Notes for creating creatures: Help them draw a general template for the body to make cutting the bodies out a little easier. Also, sew the face on before you sew the body together, and make sure everyone’s needles will fit through their buttons.
