Below is a picture of each project and the materials YOU will need to bring if you are going to make the pictured project.  Please keep in mind that this class is about 30 min. long so budget your time wisely as you probably won't have time to finish all 3.  Look for sign ups in your auxilary roles this Sunday!

1 baby wipe case - white
1/4 of fat quarter of fabric (you can get 4 out of one fat quarter) go in with a friend!

Indoor Flower Pot:

Needed Materials:
1 glass pot or any kind of pot, the cheaper the better!!

Spice Up A Frame:

Frame (look around your house, the frame doesn't have to be in perfect condition, we are going to cover it and spice it up!)
