Young Embroiderers Fabric Wallets

The Y E group met on Saturday 15th September, with a lovely day making Fabric Wallets.

The children had to cut out their fabrics, using paper patterns, which were then hand embellished with ribbons, lace and embroidery stitches. 
In the final step, the wallets were assembled and sewn together using the sewing machines.

Some children added a fabric purse to the wallet.

So a busy day was had by all.
