Diy Galaxy T-shirt

You've seen it now you'd better believe it. Galaxy prints are back in! Previously only to be found on the backs of die-hard Dungeons and Dragons tournament attendees or hanging in musty new age shops between the wizard posters and dream catchers. But...!

Fabric Wrapped Picture Frames

These unconventional picture frames are so easy to make! Plus this is a great recycling project to use up all those fabric scraps I know you have lying around.

How to make: an ornament tree

I woke up this morning and looked out onto my balcony with a start. For a moment there I thought the flowers were blooming but alas, it was just the snow covered leaves glistening in the watery light.

☺ Surprise Feature ☺

Just stumbled across my first full-page feature in this month's issue of Mollie Makes Magazine... 
Chuffed  to bits!

Why Sisters Rule

Contents of my birthday goody bag!

Sisters get you the best presents ever. Fact. This is the bounty I scored for my 30th from my oh-so-thoughtful sis Kim, along with more cake than four adults could comfortably scoff. So spoiled!

Book Review: Learn to Knit, Love to Knit

My book review of Learn to Knit, Love to Knit by Anna Wilkinson has just been published in this week's issue of Gathered Magazine by Mollie Makes. Above is a sneaky preview, to read the full article head over to the link above where you can download a copy to your iPad. If you haven't checked out Anna's book yet then get onto it toot sweet! I can't wait to whip up those quirky-wonderful fingerless gloves...

Crocheting stripes: changing colours

Here's a quick vid I made to show you an easy way to change colours when crocheting stripes. This works best with 3 colours since the yarn only has a small distance to travel up the side of the fabric, keeping the result neat-looking. Provided you are using an odd number of colours, this technique saves you from breaking the yarn at the end of every stripe which means less time weaving ends later. Yay!

How to: Tie a Turban Headband

The turban headbands I sell in my shop are stitched in place to maintain that 'twist' and are made from stretchy fabric so all you need to do is pull them on like a regular headband and you're good to go. But did you know you can also achieve the turban look simply with a long scarf?
