November Crafternoon

Just like October, November seems to be flying by in a blur! November’s crafternoon was last weekend. It was a crazy dip party where I provided dip-able items and asked everyone to bring a dip. It was amazing, so many delicious dips and a perfect range from savory to sweet. That photo above with the tables covered in food wasn’t even after all the dips had arrived. I highly recommend throwing a dip party!
We made hand sewn things from wool felt. We had a couple of books and printed patterns for inspiration. I forgot to take a photo of the one I made, I’ll do that this week. But as you can see there was a lot of cute things sewn, and I didn’t even get a photo of all of them. Next month’s crafternoon is already planned, my holiday shop update is in the works (I’ll post some peeks and a set date this week), and I’ll be printing out my advent planner this week to sit down and start planning our advent. Don’t forget that when you buy the planner you get updates (and new content & DIY’s for free automatically) So many thanks to everyone who has purchased a copy so far! I want to see what you do with it so please tag #verymerry on social media websites, or leave me a link in the comments.

  2. How cute! I love the donuts and the Russian nesting doll. I used to make a lot of felt crafts. It’s a cheap, fun way to make some great little projects!

    Rae, it came about because my friend Molly brought an amazing warm cheesy bean dip to the previous crafternoon and we were all going on and on how we could just eat dip for meals, and then the idea just made perfect sense!

    Sian, I’ll get the names of the books for you, one was mine—but the really really cute one belonged to my friend Molly.
