DIY at Got Craft? with Spool of Thread

spoolofthread_spring_2014Familiar faces from the Spool of Thread sewing lounge will be at the upcoming Got Craft? on Saturday, May 10th and Sunday, May 11th, 2014 teaching you how to make your own bow pins. Super cute right?! Bow ties make a great accessory to pin on your jacket or as a last minute Mother’s Day gift – hooray!

Spool of Thread‘s free DIY table has all the supplies and tools needed to make a Bow Pin. They’ll even bring pins so that you can wear your creation right away! The best part of the day is watching everyone match their favourite printed cotton to felt, each colour combination tested with each person coming up with their own spin on the project.

The bow would also be darling as a hair accessory or as a special topper for a gift!
