Fairy Picnic Bindle

Continuing with our Fairy Picnic theme, this week we’re showing you how to make a Fairy Picnic Bindle.

A Bindle is a little bag tied on the end of a stick which is carried over the shoulder. The bag is usually a blanket tied in a knot on the stick which makes it easy to carry little items around. A Bindle is also called a “Swag” or “Hobo Stick”

And a fairy sized Bindle is perfect for your fairy to bring a picnic lunch to her favourite fairy picnic spot.

How to make your own Fairy Picnic Bindle…..

You will need

  • A small square piece of thin fabric which measures about 8cm x 8cm
  • A thin stick or a wooden skewer (with the sharp end removed) about 8cm long
  • Fairy food for a picnic – see below

It is much easier if you use thin fabric and cut pointy corners in the fabric … to make it easier to tie the corners together.

What to Do…
