Envelope Cushion Cover – Quick Project

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!

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!

An A-Z of the Craft Room

I had a bit of a tidy up and sort out in the craft room recently; and it got me thinking about how individual a space it is! wondering how I would go about doing a room tour post, and I decided to do an A-Z. Which might give you a little more insight into me, if you’re new to the blog, or just feeling nosy! So here we go an A-Z of the craft room!

Fat Quarter Project – Needle Wrap and More

A little over a year ago I purchased a fat quarter of really pretty Alice in Wonderland cotton fabric at a craft show. Simply because I liked the pattern and the subtle colours; though I love all things Alice, and have slight theming in the craft room! I just needed the right fat quarter project!

When I bought it, I had no idea what I was going to make with it, it was definitely one of those “just really like the print” purchases, (you know what I mean right?) and so, of course it sat in storage, not forgotten, just awaiting inspiration.
