Normally, I find that sewing tutorials online can be rather confusing, but the step-by-step instructions for this cute reversible bag make it really clear what you have to do at each stage . . . so I wanted to feature it here on my blog in case other people get as confused as I do trying to follow sewing instructions! 🙂
The bag is a small size (for kids) but you could always size it up for adults without much difficulty.
These colourful and eye-catching patterns are created from layers of paper and can be cut with either scissors or a craft knife. You can then frame them individually, or string lots together to make a garland!

This beautiful hair accessory is made by folding satin ribbon into individual petal shapes and then using a lighter and/or glue to fix them in place.
Don’t be daunted because it looks intricate; most of the parts are the same petal shape repeated, so it’s actually quite simple!

I came across this website the other day, which offers high quality workshops (video lessons) online for free – including my favourites; a ‘waxing papers’ class and an ‘exploring monoprints’ class.
They also offer some other workshops for a small fee.
Check them out!
These trendy statement earrings are actually easy to make at home with regular polymer clay, and it’s a fab way of using up all the little scraps of clay leftover from other projects (even if it’s gone a dry and crumbly!)
This beaded bracelet looks like an expensive piece of jewellery, and yet the beads are just made from rolled up strips of paper. The secret is to add embossing enamel (UTEE) to the beads to give the shiny appearance of glass. Brilliant!
Craftsy* are having a big sale on online classes – from today at 12:01am MST, to 11:59pm MST on Monday 13th – that will reduce them all to under $20! And considering that some of the classes are around $60 at the moment, that’s a big saving on many of the most comprehensive lessons.
