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 love sewing but I don’t always have loads of time to do it. Also patterns scare me a bit, they look so complicated! This skirt pattern is super simple to follow though because all you need to do is be able to cut in a straight like and use your sewing machine – there really is no pattern to follow! You can make it without using a tape measure and best of all you really can make it from only one metre of fabric.…
With two small kids the amount of time I get to make things myself is pretty limited. Actually it’s pretty non-existent, so anything I do needs to be made in a matter of minutes or it just isn’t going to happen. Thankfully I’ve got a way to make cushion covers that really can be done super quickly so these really can be whipped up in no time. What’s more this cute material was designed by myself and that was super simple too!
Over the last couple of weeks I’ve shared a couple of posts on the Crafts on Sea Facebook page about quiet books and each time they’ve gone slightly crazy! People love quiet books and I can see why, they’re a great gift that you can make for your kid and they can help chill them out and help them learn at the same time. Fantastic! Seeing as they were so popular I thought it would be fun to make a little round up of some inspirational quiet book ideas. Stuff that looks cool but that is actually achievable too (I have two kids, I know what it’s like!) Hope you like them!
Welcome back to Tuesday Tutorials. This week I’ve started sewing again after a long absence and I’ve been loving it! We spent last weekend reviewing a cottage staycation (more on that later!) where I did some work on leather bag I’ve been making forever and when we got back I started a sewing project for my son (more on that later too!) Because I’m a bit thrifty though I hate throwing nice material away so I’m always trying to think of things to do with the scraps, after all that stuff is expensive! Thankfully Tuesday Tutorials came to my rescue via some of the posts linked up last week and inspired this round up of fantastic things to make with fabric scraps.
