Felt Easter Egg Decorations

A year ago my girls spent a happy afternoon making these banners to decorate the house for Easter – such is life with a small person in the house, I’ve only just got round to blogging them. The template for the eggs was just a Hama Bead Egg board, something we can always find...

Fabric Bag with Cat Motif

Over the Summer, Maddy wanted to experiment with using our new sewing machine and decided to have another  go at a bag she had tried once before and hadn’t been so pleased with. This time she put a little more thought into how to build up her pattern and layer the seams so it...

We wanted to make some pretty traditional ornaments to go on our light up twigs this Christmas. Since we are currently sewing-machine-less due to an accident with an over-zealous daughter and a large wedge of material, it is handsewing all the way.

Sock Snowman Craft

For a super simple instant snowman, you can’t beat this idea given to me by a teacher friend. It amused all my children in the run up to a rather trying Christmas and the resulting snowmen were rather cute. (Note, do not store them in the garage afterwards, instant mouse fest). These are really...
