hand-made plushie @ the museum

I made this monster in an hour, sitting on the floor of the San Francisco Museum of Craft and Folk Art, a couple of weeks ago. The occasion was the amazing Craft Bar with Etsy Lab, where you were provided refreshments, sewing and knitting supplies and kits to make stuff! I can’t wait to go to the next one. Is  completely free for students – only 5$ for everybody else.

The sewing kit, and demonstration, enabled me to make a plushie out of old sweaters and buttons. In alternative you could make a cup cozy or knit a scarf (pattern provided) or whatever you wanted. It was such a great night, with so many people crafting happily all over the place, men, women, old and young people alike. And here I am, from the museum’s flickr page…

There’s no better way to celebrate craft in a museum than…making something.
