Crafternoon Hen Party 17th August 2013


This Sunday saw nine hens descend upon The Marksman pub to get crafty and make some monsters. After having an excellent Sunday lunch they embarked on 3 hours of fun and crafting to create these wonderful monsters.

I was looking after my niece one Sunday this summer holidays, we had walked around East London but were looking for something a bit more crafty. After a stop at Beyond Fabrics a great fabric store on Columbia Road we headed home to raid my ribbon and embellishments tin. Mae designed and made 2 cushions in one afternoon. A sunday well spent !

When I was a child my mother decorated my bedroom with brown Harlequin fabric Jungle Book curtain, I can remember staring at them for hours and willing the animals to come alive. I couldn’t find any of the original fabric but they have a new version which I bought for Miss P’s room. Jungle Jamboree!
