Layouts and sewing!

Wow it has been sooo long since I last posted. Have been mostly updating the shop blog and ignoring my own. But thought it about time to start getting more up to date here too!

Firstly here are some layouts that I don't think I've shared before! The middle one I did using a Crafty Stash Kit and the last one for a challenge on UKScrappers quite a while ago!

These 2 I made for the shop blog. The Black, Red & White layout used this kit from the Which Crafts? shop and some red scraps and Elle's Studio Journalling Tags. The second one being part of the All One Colour Challenge for the Blog Party. Pop on over and join in, we would love to see what you come up with and there is a chance to winning a free kit!

And lastly I have had a play with my new sewing machine! I have wanted one for ages and I will hopefully be having a play with it on some layouts soon but I decided to make a bag. And for my first attempt I am very pleased! If you fancy a go yourself there is a lovely tutorial here and you will prob do a better job than me!

I'd love to see any sewing that anybody else has done and any helpful tutorials or tips on using a sewing machine for crafts if you know of any.

Thanks for popping by!


  1. Fantastic LO's, as for sewing machine tips, never let your machine know you are in a hurry, it will start chewing thread & fabric just for the fun of it, oh & always check your tension on a spare piece of fabric... basic, but it but saves hours of frustration :)

  2. As someone whose just survived a hen night that's a great LO.
