Hanmade cereal box organiser

I enjoyed making this project. It was easy and so useful once it was done.
I had been waiting to think of a project to use this wallpaper and I am really pleased with
 how it came out.
Check out katydidandkid for the tutorial here. Follow the steps to make your own organiser.

Hanmade bean bags

This was a cute little project that I made for a gift for a friends son and he totally loves it! I am so pleased. Its not too hard to make and you can personalise them too which is extra special.

Cut out rectangles that you will fold in half, sew on a letter,
sew around the edges right sides together.
Make a bag slighly smaller and insert kidney beans.
Turn the outside pocket round the right way, insert your bean bag.
Sew the open edge together.
I wanted to make a small bag to hold them in, so I made one with a simple lining and two handles, just right for little hands!
What a perfect gift!

Happy Year! And craft aims 2013

Hello and happy new year! I hope you have had a lovely Christmas and new year! I did!

So I had abit off time off from sewing over Christmas, but my head has been doing lots of planning and thinking about future projects that I would like to make this year. 
I made a crafty list this time last year and actually found it helpful. Plus it's a great way to log what I would like to do. ECk exciting! 

So here it is;
A denim skirt from a pair of jeans
Cushion for the couch ( I already have the perfect fabric!)
Fabric basket for my mother in law, as requested by her
A small quilted blanket
Quilted place mats
Curtains for our trailer tent

Phew, I think the list is long enough! 
Some of these things will take more time than others. 
I have wanted to start quilting but have felt abut nervous about it, but think this will be the year that I make some progress! 
I will also be making other bits and bobs along the way. 

What projects have you got planned? 

Next time... I will be showing you some inspiring ideas, see you then!
