For Kids: Make Your Own Mason Jar Planter

Spring is here, which means Mother’s and Father’s Days are right around the corner! Need a last-minute gift idea for a favorite parental figure in your life? On April 26th, I will be hosting Project Maker: Mason Jar Planters at the Poulsbo Library from 3:30-5pm in our Community Room. Kitsap Regional Library is offering a similar program for adults, but the one at Poulsbo is particularly aimed at kids.

Crafting at the Library: How to Backstitch

Backstitch is a versatile stitch that can be used purely as decorative embroidery or functionally in hand sewing. Backstitch creates a single, unbroken line of stitches that can be straight or curved. The length of each individual stitch can be very short or very long, but the stitches should all be the same length.

Thread your needle and tie a knot at the tail of your thread.

Insert your needle from the back of the fabric to the front so that the knot is at the back of your fabric.
