Join in the time-honored tradition of sewing toys from the scrap basket. Inspired by children’s books, little rabbit finger puppets are made from boiled wool and scraps. From basic shapes, learn the fabric preparation and traditional toymaking techniques to finish, personalize and costume your bunny. Think Easter baskets, bouquets, hidden for the garden egg hunt. Pattern and instructions included. Ages 16+

Impact: Scraps of fabric, often too small or oddly shaped to use for other projects, are diverted from the waste stream.

Instructor Pippa Mars

Participant and Materials Requirements: Please bring sharp fabric scissors. Participants will be doing hand sewing and should have some basic level of comfort following along with the pattern and the instructor. Fabric, trim, needles, and thread are provided.
