Americana Academy Workshop: Yarn Dolls
Fridays: July 29 • 3:00-5:00 pm
Do you have some left over yarn from a knitting project, and a few scrap pieces of felt or cotton? Learn how to use them to make a traditional yarn doll, then dress it - you can choose between boy or girl. It is simple, fun, a great way to use those scraps, and makes great gifts!
