Handmade With Heinz

Back in Lockdown 1.0, I was delighted to reveal that I partnered with Heinz UK! The Crafty Lass was set a challenge: to inspire people to reuse their lockdown Heinz cans to make fun and easy ‘can crafts’ for all the family. Now, I am adding all the makes and creates from my exciting Heinz Read More

Nail Varnish Marbling

Have you tried this before? It is something I have wanted to do for AGES! In fact, ever since I’ve been using Pinterest… I love Pinterest (do you use it?) I can often be found searching for ideas and inspiration around 3am when up with Rupert… 😅😴 Anyway, after buying some ceramic blanks from Hobbycraft, I Read More

Let It Snow!

I love a wreath. It’s no secret – as I have taken to having some sort of wreath on our own front door, all year round! It makes me smile, and it apparently makes people smile as they walk past too – so, wreaths it is… However, sometimes – it is nice to have a Read More

The Handmade Festival ONLINE 2020 – the FESTIVE edition!

I think we can all agree that this year – hasn’t quite gone to plan… Some highs, but mainly lows… certainly different. From a crafting perspective – I finished maternity leave ‘officially’ in June 2020 – and in all sense of ‘normality’ I would be fully into festive mode with workshops here at the studio Read More

Organisation – Cricut Labelling Heaven!

For someone who loves being organised – a Cricut Maker* is an absolute DREAM! We put this Ikea storage into the playroom earlier this year… No exaggeration, we spent SEVEN hours tidying and arranging these yesterday… adding the coloured vinyl labels on to the draws is the icing on an organised cake! Such a simple thing Read More

Time to refresh, renew, strengthen and build.

Gosh it has been a super long time since I have written a post… I had almost forgotten how to do it! Over the last year I have basically just tried to keep my social media going for The Crafty Lass – my website and blog rightly or wrongly has largely been ignored. I was Read More

The Crafty Lass does… Quick Make: Bottle Gift Bag!

With the call for more ways to reuse and upcycle – here is a fun and simple make for a little gift bag. You could use any fabrics you like, and of course this wouldn’t have to be just for Christmas. You could even use something like an old shirt to turn it from unwanted Read More

The Crafty Lass does… Santa Hats Tutorial!

I know (and I say this a lot to myself, and here on this blog about various things) why would I want to MAKE one, when I could BUY one? Because, I am crafty. Mad too, I think. But also – for the sheer personal satisfaction. To be honest, I was given this beautiful feathers Read More

The Crafty Lass does… Halloween!

I know, I think I’m crazy sometimes too. I could have just bought a costume… But I WANTED to make one. Little Freddie has suddenly become very interested in Mummy’s sewing machine – and thinks it is magic that I can take fabric and turn into something ‘for you’. How perfect then, to make him Read More

Who’s The Crafty Lass? Oh yes, I remember now – that’s ME.

The Crafty Lass… who’s that? Who is she? Oh yes, I remember now – that’s ME. I had almost forgotten. I was asked in a consultant doctor’s appointment the other day what my job was – seeing as we had only just met and he needed to establish my general day to day ‘activity levels’ Read More

The Crafty Lass does… Maternity Leave!

How is it May? MIDDLE of May. Christmas, Januuuuuuuuuuuuuary. FebruaryMarchApril. MAY. And so that’s it, I am on Maternity Leave as of the end of today. The last 36 weeks in particular have been super speedy – part of me feels like I’ve been expecting a baby forever, part of me thinks – how is Read More

I can’t do everything!

People presume as I am ‘The Crafty Lass’, I can do it ALL. Everything – ALL the crafty things. Well… I can’t! I cannot sew a zip. Although I can easily sew on a button, I do not know how to sew a button hole. I think there is a setting on my beloved sewing Read More
