Our latest Hobbycraft project is a very simple little project to create 4 simple puppets with just spoons, felt and goggly eyes! So your kiddies can put on their very own Christmas panto from behind the sofa. Who doesn’t love a bit of festive theatre. He’s behiiiiiiiind you!
Head on over to the Hobbycraft website now to find out how to make them.
Is it okay to be in Christmas mode yet? We couldn’t wait any longer! We decided to make a little Advent Garland for the Hobbycraft Blog – 24 little stockings and mittens that can be filled with goodies in the lead up to Christmas. It’s really easy to make but bear in mind that you do need to make twenty four! So it takes a little time.
Our latest post for Hobbycraft is now live, hoorah! This month we decided to make something for our long-suffering cameras. We’re so snap happy – our cameras are always with us and they get a lot of bashing about, flung into the nappy bag with all manner of baby junk. We wanted to create a cover for the strap to personalise our cameras, one that can be removed for washing! This is a nice easy project and a great way to use up scraps of fabric.
On Friday we waved bye-bye to our Buttons for the night (secret high-five) and hopped on a train to London for the MAD Blog Awards. These awards honour parent bloggers in the UK and we were finalists in their best craft blog category. We had a really lovely evening and totally weren’t expecting to win anything (our competition were all established and awesome blogs) so when they called our name out as winners… Well it was all a bit of a shock. We have no idea what we said when we picked up our award but will probably cringe when we see the video.
Ooh, we’ve got a really exciting weekend ahead of us – tonight we’re off to the MAD (Mums and Dads) Blog awards as finalists for best craft blog. We never get dressed up these days, so we’re very excited to get to wear fancy dresses and paint our nails. It’s also the first time we’ve left two of our Buttons for a night away so it’s exciting and nerve-wracking at the same time!
Our latest Hobbycraft project is now on their website, and we think its pretty…erm… cool! With the summer in full swing we wanted to make a little purse to keep our ice cream change in, and to remind us of those summer nights once the sun has long gone. For the full tutorial of how to make your own, pop on over to Hobbycraft.
Our latest post for Hobbycraft is now live. We decided to use some different products from their store which we hadn’t tried before. We used this floral number centrepiece we made at our little blog birthday party. It was simple to make and looks great as the table decoration. For the full tutorial click here.
