I’m hoping to get a bit of help from the lovely Burda Community.
I have been roped in to a local event (Southampton UK) on the 14th March. It is a vintage clothing/music event at a local bar.
I have been asked to run a stall where people can pay about £3 and then run riot with fabric scraps to create some of their own cool DIY accessories. I have been asked to come up with some ideas for what they can make. I have had a look through the accessories Projects here on Burdastyle but THE TOUGH PART is that they have to be quick and easy AND made with no machine sewing (as there will not be access for a sewing machine at the bar).
We may have a glue gun or two and will be able to provide chains, links, badge backs, earring hooks and that kind of thing but I really need help with ideas for non-sewn (or very minimal hand sewing) accessories. Any help will be really appreciated.
