Oliver + S Day!

In case you missed it (and really, if you did, how could you? I was harping on about it enough!) Saturday was Oliver + S Day at the Eternal Maker. And what a great day it was!
We had an all day class making the Ice Cream Dress...
And look at some of these finished dresses - cute, huh?
No, Emily - I don't think its going to fit you. Nice try though.
And while all that was going on, we had some drop-in make and takes going on throughout the day. Here is Rachael doing some paper craft projects - we had fridge magnets with the oliver + s paper dolls, brooches, and of course, as Father's Day was on Sunday-
some sweet fathers day cards. Hmm. What clothes are they on the line? Oliver + s ones?
And while Rachael was doing that, Millie was making necklaces and earrings...
cute, huh?
oh, and check out the sweet spool dog. We were making them, too.

And while all THAT was going on, Paul and I were guiding people through making wash bags using lovely coated cotton from the Modern Workshop fabric range, and the Lazy Days Skirt.
I lost track of how many skirts we made through the day, but I'm pretty sure it has to be some sort of record. What I liked most was we had a lot of little girls in, and this skirt is so super easy that we were able to guide them through making them - for some of them it was their first time on a sewing machine!
Although the skirt pattern uses ribbon, it seemed that pompoms were the trim of the day, so with a slight adjustment of the pattern we pom-pommed everything!
Thanks everyone who came along and joined us on this great day, and thanks to oliver + s for making such good products!

Remember you still have time to enter our oliver + s giveaway - we will be drawing the winner at the end of the week, so enter now for this great prize!

Our next big day is on Saturday 23rd July, and is a celebration of organic fabrics - using fabrics from companies such as Birch Fabrics, and Cloud 9 Fabrics. More information on this nearer the time - but put the date in your diary!
