Flying South for Summer

Flying South for Summer

Are you off on your travels this summer? If so this quick project designed and made by Starr Thomas may be just what you need. Starr explains "I nearly lost my suitcase because it was the same make as a fellow traveller's, so I decided to make a distinctive strap using test blocks from a workshop". This strap has 3D flying geese, but to make it simpler we have given instructions for ordinary flying geese. But of course you could follow Starr's example and use up pieces from those samples started and never finished!
