DIY printed nautical beach bag

20140522-220456-79496550.jpg

 

This is another project that I’ve made for my business, Less Grafting More Crafting – sorry for another cross-post, but I’m just so chuffed with this!

 

We’ve been posting about this summer’s nautical trends on our blog and decided to design a project that you can make at the weekend. We were keen to do some fabric painting, and this is the result! It’s a DIY tutorial post so we take you through each step, and you can download the PDF template too. To see the full tutorial, click here. I’d love to hear what you think!

Spinach and feta tart | Hello! Hooray!

Spinach and feta tart

This spinach and feta tart is surprisingly easy to make and tastes delicious – it’s perfect for a summer meal or you could take it on a picnic too. I made my pastry from scratch, but you could use a pack of shop-bought to make it even easier. What’s really great about this recipe is that you don’t have to mess about blind baking the pastry, you can just line the tin, pop in the filling and then bake. Great! Read More

It’s actually surprisingly easy, and if you’re looking to have a crafty wedding or a wedding on a budget, then it’s one of the ways that you can save money and create something beautiful and unique to you.

Ginger Crunch | Hello! Hooray!

Ginger crunch

This weekend looks set to be a lovely sunny weekend, so get your picnic baskets out and get out there! This recipe for Ginger Crunch is the perfect to make to take out on a picnic – it really is so SO good 🙂 Ginger is definitely one of my favourite flavours, and if (like me) you have a sweet tooth, you’ll love this recipe! The fudge topping is really easy to make, and will set really quickly at room temperature, so no need to put it in the fridge. The original recipe says to use a 24 x 34 cm baking tin, but I used my brownie pan to get a much thicker version!
