Make it Monday: Craft projects

October 26, 2009

So, I have not been up to much for the last couple of weeks. I am sort of in a ‘it is Autumn and if I am going to be cooped up in this house all Winter it needs to be sorted’ so I am clearing all cupboards, recycling, freecycling and giving bags of stuff to charity shops. So I don’t have a lot to show you at the moment. Rest assured there are posts in the pipeline though!

So this week I thought I would share with you some of the things I have found on the internet that I want to make but don’t have the time!

There are loads of embroidery patterns on LollyChops that I like. If you have time have a browse around this site – there are so many great projects that I would love to do!

I have lots of lavender from the garden this year so I am hoping that I manage to make a heat bag as a Christmas present for my MIL.

I just love this Scrappy Bird Mobile and I have lots of bits of material that would work. Thinking of making a grown up version for my room in muted fabric and a bright and beautiful one for Piran’s room.

And as it is half term and Halloween at the end of the week why not try a wooden spoon witch puppet or a ghost or anything else you can think of. Or make a Halloween mobile.
