Like any avid crafter, when I heard the words ‘Etsy’, ‘craft’ and ‘party’ in the same sentence, I naturally cleared my schedule, put on my favourite cardigan and headed along with bells on.
The Melbourne Craft Party took place this Saturday, and brought together a room full of happy crafty types to make sun-catchers in various shapes and sizes.
I went with a diamond shape (who could go past it? So cute!) and had great fun cutting up bits of tissue paper in pretty pastels to fill in the gaps. When I’m crafting, it’s usually crochet, weaving or felting, so it was actually really nice to get back to basics with good old scissors, glue and paper.
Etsy put on a great spread (just look at this giant, coconut marshmallow!) and it was certainly a wonderful way to while away a Saturday arvo.
Did you get along to any of the Etsy Craft Parties in Australia or around the world? What did you make? I’d love to see!
