Had a busy but very enjoyable two days doing felting activities at the Mega Mela in Manchester.
On the first day the children ( and some adults) used prefelts to make Rangoli inspired patters.
It was non stop felting fun for five hours! But it was great to see all the different designs that could be made with just three shapes.
The following day I was double booked - I set up early at Beech Road Festival and spent an hour or so there.
Ames's table and all her wonderful crochet creations. I really love her cute colourful aliens.
So at 1 o'clock I set off to the Mela again.
Some children go both days so I decided to do some sewing on my handmade felt.
There was a choice of elephants:
The above pink shape with the yellow flower was done by a young boy who went off to get his face painted and never came back! Shame since he did such a fantastic job.
So a very busy but enjoyable two days - and there was free curry and lots of sunshine - what more could you want?!
