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 colours of the day.
So I set out op-shopping to see what I could find. And found a mug holder, and mugs; I purchased the holder only;)
When I arrived home I discovered the ‘extra arms’ simply could be screwed out.
I purchased quilter’s cotton for the vestments; I didn’t need much. Then I played with a piece of greaseproof paper shaping a template until I was happy.
Making the vestments didn’t take long, I hemmed the edges with the machine and my mil quickly hand stitched the necks.
Our children really enjoy changing the vestments. Thank you Jennifer and friends for the ideas and inspiration:)
