We finally had another Crafternoon with more than myself, hurray! Today, my friends Dee & Mimi came over for some diy time. Mimi wanted to crochet a scarf to wear in the winter & Dee wanted to learn to crochet. So we had a crafternoon crochet lesson. It went really well & now both ladies are working on double crochet scarves ^.^
This is the direction that I dreamed Crafternoons would take. I wanted to provide a place where people could come and learn a craft or teach one. That way, we create a melting pot of diy ability.

I wrote earlier that I finished my first official handspun yarn. I twisted it up into a wee little hank and it was very cute ^.^

I found this briefcase sitting outside our dumpster one night. I decided to spray paint it. A quick coat of paint is a really easy way to spruce up a find. First, I painted it silver, then taped the striped pattern, & then sprayed it navy blue.
|Here it is mid process.|

Cherie worked on refashioning a shirt she got from her Grandmother. She did a lot of nipping, tucking, and grommet setting and created a very cute lace up tube top. Unfortunately, I don't have any pictures of it yet, but I will.
This was a great Crafternoon. Next week, I hope to host another Crafternoon just as great. :)
