July’s Crafternoon was all about weaving & dips! Weaving is probably pretty self explanatory. A lot of us bought looms from Target, and we used youtube videos to explain the best ways to weave, create hanging parts, make shapes, etc. I have not finished my weaving yet (seen above) and have kept mine pretty simple, but using lots of colors I love. The dip part of crafternoon went like this..Everyone brings a dip (savory or sweet) and I provide stuff to dip. It was really fun and the second time we’ve done a dip party like this.
As always we did a white elephant swap. I made this funny broad city tote bag (because lots of the ladies are fans of the show) by making a iron on from the map insert that comes with the DVD set of the show. I found the Milk Bar truffle mix and cute squirrel pen at Target! I’m slowly putting together a book-lover themed gift for the next white elephant gift. Some times gathering and making goodies for the swap is one of my favorite things to do.
