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.

Craft Room and Beyond, Crafts Header

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!

Pride 2021 and the Craftic Challenge

June is of course Pride month, and for Pride 2021, I wanted to do a couple of things! First of all I wanted to do a craft project, I also wanted to buy from an LGBTQ+ small, indie business; and in doing so, support someone’s dreams, and get something pretty for me; but something that was also representative of Pride. I also wanted to take part in the Craftic Pride Rainbow Challenge!

Wow, that’s a busy little list, when you add it to the projects I’m working on already, and the 30 Days Wild, and of course not forgetting the day job…

Garden Bunting and Wild Week 3

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!

Bright Knitted Jumper Project

I first started this bright knitted jumper project ages ago; and keep putting it down to work on other things! Lately though I have picked it back up again, to work on it a little more; and thought I’d share a little update!

On the desk...

When I started knitting this jumper I was going to make it purely with rectangles as a super quick and easy slouch jumper, though my limited skill has improved to the extent I am working on slightly better sleeves.

Handmade Happy Mail 2021

I usually send handmade happy mail out every now and again; to friends and family. A little something sweet through the letterbox is fun to both send and receive! I had a chilled evening recently and decided to make a whole bunch of cards, so I had some ready!

Happy Mail

I’ve had one particular matching set of card blanks for a while now. I love the cute patterns and colours, as well as the style of the open front ones! This week I spent one evening choosing various coordinating toppers, to make around 25 handmade cards!

Movies and Music – A-Z Challenge 2021

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!

A-Z Challenge 2021

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!

Jewels and Sparkle – A-Z Challenge 2021

We’re finally here, J. My most dreaded of letters for this years challenge. Honestly; I wrote a list and couldn’t come up with anything for J! Someone suggested jewellery; but I don’t do much in the way of making jewellery (though I’ve had a go here and there)! Though I do use jewels, gems, glitter, beads and sparkle a lot in crafting!

Crafty January Baking & Handmade Cards.

So we’ve made it through the first month of 2021; with just one weekend to go. it’s been a great month of creating and I though I’d do a bit of a round up of a very crafty January!

This Week

I’m feeling fairly positive about how the month has gone, and have achieved several of my goals (not all of them, but it’s looking good for productivity), so I’m calling it a win! With that in mind; I’m more than ready to head into a positive and productive February!
