Smocking bonnets

Work continues on the smocked baby bonnets. Barbara brought two of her own designs to show the group.

Barbara has added beads to the green smocking on the left for a heavier, sparklier effect. This technique works particularly well on clothes intended for adults.

There is an important social aspect to the meetings.

For smaller children and those not interested in joining in the sewing, we are lucky to have books and crafts supplied by Marion Joyce.
