I hate throwing clothes out. Apart from the fact that they’ve normally cost a bit, I don’t like to see something nice end up in a rubbish bag, it feels like such a waste. Of course you can donate them to charity, but if you’d like them to have a second life with you first then turning them into t-shirt yarn and creating something new is the perfect way to do it! I know that I’m not always as full of ideas as I am as full of good intentions so today I’m sharing 10 things to make with t-shirt yarn to inspire you as well as sharing a tutorial for how to make t-shirt yarn yourself.

We moved house three months ago and I chucked so much stuff out it was crazy. Now? I’m totally regretting it! I love upcycling projects and I’ve already started scouring my local boot fairs for stuff I could do up – I’m never chucking stuff out again! These upcycling projects are all cute, cool and totally fabulous plus as they’re upcycled they’re saving perfectly good things from going to the tip, it’s all winning!

Three months ago we moved house from Essex to Cornwall, I absolutely love it but…we’re renting at the moment. Now that’s not to say that renting is a bad thing and I’m not one of those people who thinks renting is money down the drain either (hello – we have a nice house in Cornwall!) but the thing that I am struggling with is decorating. I find it really hard to personalise our space when I can’t do anything that will leave a permanent mark. I’ve been really wanting to spruce up my work area a bit so I made a few little changes including this super cute DIY pom pom garland which I’m sharing the tutorial for today.
I was really excited to be asked by Harveys if I’d like to work with them on their Spring By You campaign. My home is a mixture of things I’ve bought, things I’ve made and things that I’ve done up (plus all the kids stuff!) and I love to try and be a bit creative around our home where I can. Spring is the perfect excuse to get your home how you want it and today I’m sharing a tutorial for a simple DIY monogram applique that I made for my daughters room.
I’ve really enjoyed sharing some free colouring pages for adults recently and today I’m sharing some new ones for you to download – these fantastic maps! The Ordnance Survey has recently released some of their fabulous maps as downloads that can be printed off and coloured in, having tried the London map myself I can confirm that they are brilliant! Really relaxing and there’s lots of little bits that give you a good excuse to get lots of colours out. Which of these maps to colour in is your favourite?
