Badge Hangers

After a very lively game session with Jaws and the Hi Ho game we settled down to some craft work. Over the Easter holidays our membership badges for 2012 arrived from head office. This year is the first year they have been issued but the aim is that each year a new badge will be created and sent out to all children in Woodcraft Folk groups around the country.

Since we hope for many children this will  be the start of a collection we decided to make some badge hangers to display them. This project will take us through the next few weeks as there is a lot of work to be done.

This week we started with sewing, first making a channel at the top of the fabric which we will use later to thread a stick through, then using shaped cut from felt to personalise the hangers.The sewing was a challenge for many of the children but they all worked really hard and managed to do it.
