African Fans

Weave a cool fan!

Craft Project Directions:
To weave a fan you will need raffia, some straw (you can take some from a broom), and a stick.

To begin, fasten the straws from the broom together in the center with raffia.

Add a half straw so that you will have an odd number radiating from the center.

The half straw will be woven in. Weave the raffia in and out around the straws to form a round shape.

Bind the outer end of the circle with a whipstitch, using a strand of raffia on a blunt needle.

Attach your stick with a piece of raffia for a handle and your fan is complete!

Paint a colorful design on it if you wish.

Enjoy Crafting!
