On Sunday, July 6 at the Mar Vista Farmer’s Market representing reDiscover Center I taught children how to make their own thaumatropes with paper, markers, glue, wooden skewers and imagination! They had a blast. More was made than I could take pictures of, they come in spurts. All it takes is one little kid seeing another and they run over. They had great ideas including birds in nests, a spider in a web, fish in tanks, and more. One little girl remembered me from last month’s CD fish craft. This is truly a rewarding event. I look forward to August and learning from the children.

Workshops

Interested in making some small sewing projects this summer? Then sign up! I will be teaching three workshops at the JCC in Manhattan in July. {hint: you don’t have to sign up for all three, but why wouldn’t you. hee hee}

Fabric Arts Workshops at the JCC in Manhattan
by Amy Bauer

Quick and easy 2-hour sewing workshops for students who are absolute beginners or novice sewers. With a focus on “going green”, you will create projects that are useful and personalized. A fabric lunch tote will encourage you to eat healthier and spend less. A reusable sandwich/snack bag will have you ditch those flimsy plastic ones. Sew a simple lanyard for your keys, ID badge or Metrocard and keep it all together.

Iron-Ons

Possibly the weirdest & coolest thing I have ever gotten at a swap. A set of old Iron-ons from ? who knows when. Today I tested out one that I have no idea what it is besides a monster from someone’s mind. 🙂  The best part was to find out that they are re-useable!  Looks like I have some crafty ideas for the holidays!

Book

I taught myself a bookbinding technique today. Used some sample card stock and yarn I had. Holed punched holes and weaved the yarn in and out of each page and back into the previous page twisting the yarn to keep the book tight. Seems to work which is good because I will be giving demonstrations at the Maker Faire.

Tomorrow is Mother’s Day and once again I have made my mother a card. I used some embroidery floss I got from the art swap, bristol board, buttons, ribbon, sticky back felt, crafting papers, and Double Tack Mounting Film (which I bought today at Dick Blick).  I think it came out great. Especially since I did my usual free wheeling no plans, just winged it art!
