It’s been a while since I’ve shared a quick craft project, here on the blog; so I thought I’d share something I made recently for the rocking chair in the craft room. I shared the fabric over on Instagram ages ago, but in this post I’ll share what I made – a super easy envelope cushion cover.
As I’m sure you’ll already know by now, my craft room is a mix of teal and grey (wonder where I got my blog design idea…) and it’s also dotted with Disney, and especially Alice in Wonderland bits and pieces! I have a rocking chair in there, and for the longest time, I’ve said I want to do something with it to make it more in-keeping with the room.
Well, not too long ago (a couple of months?) Stu’s mum tagged me in a pic on Facebook, of a local fabric shop’s latest fabric additions, which were all Alice in Wonderland themed!
What lovely amazing weather we’ve been having! All the better for getting out in the garden, and of course; if I’m spending more time out there, it made me realise how much I needed to renew the garden bunting!
This has become even more noticeable, as I’ve been out planting; doing more of the 30 days wild list; and of course, enjoying family time in the sunshine!
If there are topics that are sort-of asides here on the blog, it is movies and music. I’m an avid movie watcher, and have always loved music! I’ve tried to incorporate both of these into my craft projects over time; as well as devoted posts here and there, in terms of favourites, and other features!
This year my A-Z Challenge theme is: The Craft Room and Beyond – A Retrospective. A look back at previous content and basically a chance to share and revisit some things from the archive. As well as exploring things that haven’t made it to the blog yet! As I have said before; if you see something that piques your interest that I don’t link to; certainly seek out the search bar, or get in touch!
I was having a think this week about Happy Mail; and given the time of year, and the current situation here in the UK; it made me think of what Valentines gifts (or “galentines” etc etc) you could send in the post.
So I thought I’d do a little post sharing some ideas, great if you wanted to step away from the simple flowers and chocolates, or even if you were just looking for ideas to send something nice to a special friend!
And as a bonus I’m also sharing a super cute and easy craft idea anyone can do, for almost any occasion!
You may have seen these around, but are they really easy to make? In this post I’ll share, step by step how I made my fun sock skeleton; which you may have seen over on my Instagram feed from the CraftRoomInspired Challenge last month!
This is actually a super easy craft project that looks really cute and fun! It can be a great way to use up some stash, and have a little seasonal fun; suitable for kids and adults, though smaller crafters may need a hand with the sewing!
Week 2 of the # CraftRoomInspiredChallenge – Old Comfy Socks.

It’s definitely getting more autumnal isn’t it! If you’re seeking out your colder-weather clothing, perhaps you come across a pair of old cosy socks, why not take part in this week’s # CraftRoomInspiredChallenge!
Want to work with iron-on vinyl, making your own t-shirts, home accessories and more? You should try the Cricut EasyPress 2.
This is a sponsored conversation; written by me on behalf of Cricut. The following opinions and text are all my own.
I will be completely honest, I have never given much thought to iron-on projects. This isn’t to say I’ve never had the idea; I was under the impression; that Iron-on projects are too complex. As well as something at risk of being a bit of a fad, that I’d pay out for; before becoming bored with it; not using it or getting distracted with something else.
This being the case, I haven’t really been aware of products to do this at home, though of course I know you can do certain projects at home with an iron. I don’t know the first thing about materials or methods…
It’s time to reveal the wonderful gifts from the #CraftBlogClub Secret Santa 2018!
Though I arrange #CraftBlogClub now; I have been a part of it for so much longer. The annual Secret Santa is one of my favourite of the regular challenges and events throughout the #CraftBlogClub year.
I really like giving and receiving handmade gifts; and the wide range of crafts, and talents in #CraftBlogClub means it’s always a varied and fun activity at Christmas!
Hoop art, is definitely more popular now than it was a few years ago, and it is a great craft for making a gift, or even decorating at Christmas, there are SO many great Christmas fabric designs which are really good fun for many projects; and it is nice to have a different use if you’re not big on sewing, as I wasn’t up til a couple of years ago!
This post contains items which I have kindly been gifted * All opinions are my own.
Christmas fabric is also a great eco friendly alternative to paper for wrapping! Especially for those harder to wrap gifts!
My guest blogger today is Christine, sharing fab gifts for crafters! A fellow craft blogger who I met through #CraftBlogClub on Twitter; I love her blog Craftyism, which is full of tutorials, tips, reviews and other crafty goodness.
Like me Christine is a fan of a variety of different crafts; and I’m so happy to share her gift guide.
Thank you so much Christine for this fab post! So many gorgeous pieces, and some much needed Christmas shopping inspiration!
