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

The Crafty Lass does… World Book Day!

Sometimes, I get an idea in my head – and that’s it, the idea HAS to be done. It doesn’t matter whether that is going to take me all day and all night (and then all day and all night again) to complete whatever hair brained challenge I have set myself, or whether it is Read More

Be kind to yourself. It’s January! Stop to eat the biscuits – even if they are broken.

I’m tired. But, it’s January – who isn’t tired in January? The days are dark, it’s (seriously) cold, I think we are all just trying to make it through, right? Trying to stick to New Year’s resolutions, trying to be ‘good’. In fact; who thought it would be a good idea to make resolutions to Read More

Feel the Fear…

The Crafty Lass currently features in the BOOTS Health and Beauty magazine for January/February 2019 – in an article all about conquering our fears. What better way to start the New Year with a blog post featuring a little bit more about mine, and what resolutions and steps I took to change this… Phobias: they Read More

The Crafty Lass ADVENTure…

It has certainly been that… what an adventure it has been! 2nd October 2017 – we sold our first ever ticket for The Crafty Lass workshops at the Old Grain Store workshop studio… part of me feels like it was a lot LOT longer ago, and the other part says where has that year gone?! Read More

A wreath is for life, not just for Christmas…

Autumn. For some, this is purely just the long, grey transition from the warm and bright Summer days into our dreary, cold, drab – and of late, very snowy Winters here in the UK. For, me – it is the ‘calm before the storm’… and I actually really love this season. I’ve talked before on Read More

The Journey

People keep asking me, what is next? There are lots of exciting things happening, but the one thing about this journey – it is all about putting yourself out there, and seeing what happens. Saying ‘yes’ to things perhaps I wouldn’t normally do… and also learning when you actually can say ‘no’. There IS such Read More
