I came up with four crafting activities, so that they can pick and chose.
The first one was a strawberry pin cushion, the pattern can be found on Heather Bailey.
I found it to be quick and pretty simple depending on how much of the details you would like to incorporate on your strawberry. I also liked the fact that by altering the size you can use it a Christmas ornament.
Almost everyone made one! I was so happy to see everyone concentrating and sewing away. It was also fun to see everyone's personal touches.
By the end of the day - we had some very pretty strawberries.
While everyone was working on the strawberries, I decided to work on something else, since I already did all the crafts the night before so I can use them as demos. I altered the pattern, instead of using the cone shape - I flattened and fattened it a little and turned it into a mini-pumpkin.
Craft #2 (stamp your own bags) and craft #3 (easy kleenex holders) were taken straight off of MarthStewart.com craft of the day.
The final activity was bookmaking. I loved seeing how creative everyone was at using the supplies I brought it.

I was so bored at home that I ended up making more felt stuffies.
