Crafty Colour Palette #1

Crafty colour palette #1 | Hello! Hooray!

Crafty Colour Palette #1 had to be what originally inspired my new project. 

It was this lovely tray that I got from IKEA! Every time I looked at it, I just kept thinking how the colours went together so well.  This is quite a large selection with 8 colours, but you could select a few or use them all.

What could I make?


There are so many things you could make with a rainbow colour palette! I picked out a few ideas from my Pinterest board, Stitch.


Make some hoop art with some very neat satin stitch – simple but so effective! (Embroidery by Jane Denton. Source: The Jealous Curator)

You could also customise your clothes! Use vintage-style stitches to create a unique garment or give something a new lease of life.

Customisation doesn’t have to be complicated though! Add some rainbow style with some simple stitching. This is a dress that we recently bought for Little One and it has simple stitching around the bottom in rainbow colours. You could stitch this on a sewing machine if you’re not confident at sewing by hand. Dress from Mothercare (photo my own).
