Since I’m a bit of a cushion-making fanatic, I thought I’d try putting my own twist on the circular cushion trend. I’ve altered the shape slightly and made my own DIY Easter Egg cushion. So festive! 😛 To give my Easter Egg cushion a bit of extra dimension, I used a panel…

How to make a geometric wooden clock

Have you ever tried a woodwork project before? Or has the thought of thought of using jig saws, electric sanders, mitre saws and other power tools put you off?

But you know what? I started small, and gradually built up my skills (and confidence). I’m now a…

How to make a DIY cushion with piping detail

I remember waaay back in early High School, when I first used a sewing machine.

As a young, naïve, budding crafter, my mind was blown at the sheer possibilities of the machine sitting in front of me! I could sew fabrics together! The only limit was my imagination! (and…
