Plaits and Patches

Leave a comment

The 1st Birstall Girls’ Brigade are old hands at puppet creativity having already made the head for Mary.  In their session tonight all the girls – from the Explorers to the Brigaders – got busy on the young shepherd puppet as well as adding more substance to a wise man’s robe.  They frayed patches which they sewed on to the tie-dyed tunic made by the Special Needs Playgroup.  We had “competitive plaiting” too ……I’d thought that this might make a shepherd’s belt but the finished plaits looked so lovely I’m now thinking more along the lines of headgear for a Magi.  And the shepherd’s head took shape (leading him to be christened “Ed Milliband” by the girls!)
