In case you missed my post, I have been featured in issue 47 of Craftseller magazine as their Blogger of the Month – yay! I am super excited about this (as if you hadn’t guessed!), especially as I was asked to design a copyright-free tutorial for their website. The design that appears there is a little bird felt brooch, but I had lots of other ideas when I was designing it and I thought I would put a bonus design on my blog too! Read More
I recently upgraded to the iPhone 6 and this gave me a good excuse to get out my sewing stuff and design a cover for it! I bought a plastic one too but I really don’t want to scratch the screen or anything, so a fabric case/pouch is perfect for protecting it whilst it’s in my bag or my pocket. There were two main things that I had in mind for this project: 1 – it had to be as slimline as possible, given that the phone itself is (and what is the point in making it really bulky?!); and 2 – it had to include some sort of thing for keeping my headphones nice and tidy. If there’s one thing I don’t like, its a knotted pair of headphones rattling around in my bag! Read More
It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas, and although we’re not having a tree this year (on account of our fridge freezer and washing machine camping out in our living room) we have put up a couple of things to try and bit a little bit festive! I had my eye on these gorgeous mini glass baubles from Paperchase for a few weeks, and then came up with the idea for this little garland. The baubles are 2cm in diameter, so are just perfect for this project! It’s SO easy to make and you can have it made and on display in about 20 minutes. Yay!
Christmas crafting is in full swing of many of us now, which means that I can’t actually share most of the things I’m working on with you at the moment! However, I was recently invited to take part in a competition to design a Christmas wreath as part of the Direct Blinds ‘Deck Your Doors’ campaign, and this I can share with you! I had been wondering about making a felt Christmas wreath anyway, so this was a great opportunity to get around to doing it.
