Burlap as Wearable Art

The Ekka is on at the moment (our local country comes to the city show in Brisbane, Australia) and so we took the boys down last weekend for a day of fun!

First stop was to visit the craft section and see how we fared with our entries this year. My 6 year old son has entered his owl in the under 16 years machine sewing section - unfortunately they only awarded 1st and 2nd, and his entry was the only other one - a bit mean I thought given it's a kids section. But we told him he obviously came third - which is a great achievement!

His is the small owl in the centre!
My Burlap Owl was pipped at the post in the Toys section for some really lovely and very detailed fabric toys, this was quite a competitive section.

Looks like he kept watch as night of the exhibits!
But my Hessian and Ticking cape won second place in the 'Wearable Art' category. Unforutnately the photos don't do it justice so when I get it back I will photograph it properly to show you. First place went to a very creative handbag made of old vinyl records and ribbons - wearable art indeed!

The Red Cape at the back is made of Red Burlap with a ticking Lining
