Two years ago I was totally inspired by Jennifer’s Fr Oak, not only the craftmanship of the materials but the whole concept behind Father Oak. To help focus the children’s attention on the liturgical year in a visible and tangible manner. Everyday the children change the vestments of the ‘priest’ in conjunction with the liturgical […]
A dear friend sent me some beautiful material, my plan was to make Mass bags for my little ones. Yesterday I completed them! An A4 size they are just the right size to fit prayer books in. The children can’t wait to use them. I had plans to give you a quick tutorial on making […]

My friend Anne has given me this beautiful piece of material. I’ve been pondering what to use it for? It has finally occurred to me that it would make lovely Mass bags. I’m planning on having special items to help my little ones focus on the Mystery. Any ideas/ suggestions of designs or patterns?
