Canon Creative Park
I am super proud to share that I have been recently working with Canon and even more proud that Freddie has joined in too! ❤ There is an amazing website called Canon Creative Park – and it is packed full of paper crafting projects all ready to print and create using your Canon printer and
Wild Dreams and Field of Memories
I can hardly believe that I haven’t posted on The Crafty Lass blog in 3 months – where has that time gone?? Time flies when you are having fun… And can you believe that in that time – my second Craft Cotton Co fabric collection Wild Dreams is now out in shops! The designs are super
Be Your Own Rainbow!
Be your own rainbow.❤🧡💛💚💙 This week is World Autism Awareness Week, and in particular this Good Friday 2nd April… it is World Autism Awareness Day! However, as it is a bank holiday, Freddie’s nursery are marking it a day early, tomorrow on the 1st – with activities and reading and dressing in a ‘spectrum of
Personalised Door Mats!
I love doors. Front doors! Wreaths on doors, what colour they are, what door furniture. I am a door geek! And, I genuinely have a thing about doormats too – I love them! They are the welcome into our home (albeit done very little of that in recent times!) They make me happy. And after
Simple, Fun, Festive – Paper Green Wreath
One of the things I enjoy with craft – is quite often it is the quick and simple ideas that give me the most satisfaction. Being able to turn a few basic materials into something. This is made from 1 gold wreath, some white felt balls (both from Pompluspom and 3 sheets of card (by American
Merry & Bright Cushion – NEW Cricut Infusible Ink Blanks!
I studied Printed Textile Design at Loughborough University – and I miss the old days of being in the print room. Mixing the dyes, calculating the fabric steaming requirements, preparing screen prints. Designing! Even thinking about the ‘smell’ of the print room brings back warm memories. But, this year – I discovered something new. Infusible
Rainbow T-Shirt – Cricut Infusible Ink!
Last Saturday we set about a little craft project, and what could be better than Freddie drawing his own rainbow and we magically get this on to his own new t-shirt?! I’ve done several Cricut Infusible Ink* projects now, and it never fails to amaze me just how easy it is, how vibrant the colours
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
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
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
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
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
