Starry, Starry Night

I’ve been running some needlefelting workshops at The Craft Room @ Garners Garden Centre and thought I’d share some of the projects that we have been making there. This one was inspired by Van Gogh’s famous painting ‘Starry, Starry Night’ and is an ideal introduction to…

Messenger Bag

Yesterday I decided to get out the sewing machine and have a Crafty Afternoon. I’d bought some lovely fabric the day before and was itching to transform it into a bag. I never seem to have ‘The Right Bag’ – always too small (not enough…

Crochet Cushion

I am the first to admit that I’m not fantastic at crochet but I really enjoy it. I manage to muddle through and although my results aren’t perfect, I am happy with the finished projects. I have spent a couple of evenings making a cuddly…
