Crafting Parties?

March 21, 2011 by admin

Those of you who know me, or who have read this blog, know that I love kiddos! I’m super lucky to teach roughly 20 dance/singing/fiber classes a week here in Orange County.

I’ve really enjoyed teaching Fiber Arts at  For the past few months I’ve been teaching home schooled kids to create all kinds of crafts with wool.

After an evening with some friends that turned into a night of non stop felting,  I’ve been toying with the idea of bringing crafting parties to you!   I’m still working out the details, but I wanted to see what you all thought.  Would you or your kids enjoy a felt making party? I’d bring kits with instructions and each guest would leave with a little felted critter or a sweet smelling soft bar of felted soap.

Let me know what you think!

Here’s some pics of my classes and the evening that the wool took over the kitchen.

We even had Dad’s Felting Baseballs!

Felted Cake

Felted Cakes look good enough to eat. Full of Fiber too!

I’d love your thoughts on Crafty Parties.

    Hi Molly!

    Suzy and Noelle and I were browsing the web this morning when they asked to see if you had a website. I told them I didn't know your last name and wouldn't know how to find you when Noelle said, “Type in Molly Made!” We did and here you are! How fun is that? They were pleased to see pictures of themselves on your blog. A fun little surprise for a Friday morning. We really enjoyed our class. I just emailed Jenny this week to ask about knitting classes; Noelle has been practicing her knitting and might like to learn more…Suzy, too.

    Have a great day!

    Robyn, Suzy, Noelle

    Robyn! It was so nice to hear from you. Jenn mentioned the knitting classes, which would be great! I'm going to be extremely booked this summer, and traveling a lot for work, but maybe we can squeeze a couple of lessons in before then.
    Your girls were an absolute delight to work with! I am so looking forward to the gift making class. I have loads of new ideas and techniques to share.
