Make it: Drawstring Laundry Bag

Its January and so what better time to clear out all your stuff, organise what's left and of course try your hand at that Learn how to sew, or Sew more things resolution you keep putting on your list every... damn...  year.  Don't worry we all do it, mine is make more clothes, currently have a stash of at least 4 patterns and fabric sitting in a corner... and that's from last year!

Things learnt from 2017

I don't know about you but this time of year can be both full of promise and dread!  Things do not magically change just because the next year has rolled around and so while there are many people thinking of resolutions and what they can do better, there are just as many of us, if not more, that think well, we just keep doing what we do right? or why does everything have to be suddenly amazing, and what happens if its not amazing?!? Should we then fall in a heap and wail that our year is going crap so far, so whats the point!

Merry Christmas

It's Christmas! Did anyone forget, he he.  We thought we would send a Christmas Message for you all.

So, we wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year and hope that whoever you are with or without this Christmas you can create your own Happy time.

It can be a tough time of year for some and we think its important to remember that however you do Christmas, to take some time to rest and enjoy in the way you want to.

We will be taking a little break over the Christmas period and so we shall see you in 2018!  I am sure we will be about on social media though if you want to say hi!

Love
H & Sammy

Make it: Silver Bracelets with ImpressArt

It's gift time for the Tutorial this week, with thanks to the people over at ImpressArt we are bringing you a couple of bracelet options for gift ideas for your friends or family.  These really are a great way to personalise something with song lyrics, favourite phrase or just plain a 'Love you' note.

Make it: Haberdashery Baubles

Its that time of year again, when we just have to share another fun bauble idea for your tree, it's becoming a bit of a tradition here that H gets to make a new bauble.  This year I thought I would go the fun Haberdashery way with some treats picked up from Sew Crafty

Make it: Tassel Earrings

I am super excited that statement earrings are a thing again, mostly because it means that I can get my DIY on! Tassels are first on my list and what all my friends will be getting in their stockings this Christmas so I thought I would get a head start. I made a few different pairs some with readymade mini tassels and some with DIY ones in colours couldn't get online. I picked up a few colours on Etsy from Pretty Pretty Beads and My Vintage Charms both based in the UK. They also have jewellery findings if you don't already have some in your crafty stash.
