Would you like to learn or feel more comfortable hand sewing? Or just take a break and make something cute you can keep or give as a gift? This workshop will include an introduction to basic hand sewing while you make your own custom felt ornament(s) to take home. A variety of patterns spanning seasons and pop culture will be available to use, and supplies will be provided. These make great stocking stuffers and dorm decor! All skill levels welcome!
