Cricut Make-A-Thon 2018 in Salt Lake City

As I write this, I’m sitting on a plane somewhere above the Atlantic Ocean. It’s 3am (although, on a transatlantic flight, time doesn’t have much meaning!). Most of the fellow passengers around me are asleep, but I’m far too excited for sleep… Why? Because I’m flying home from Salt Lake City, where I attended the Cricut Mountain Make-A-Thon 2018! It was the MOST AMAZING week! I’m honestly still full of adrenaline from all the stuff that’s happened… where do I…

How To Easily Make Plush Toys In ANY Shape

With a baby nephew who’s only 6 months old, I have a feeling that I’ll be sewing a lot of plush toys over the next few years. I’m talking: dinosaurs, aliens, robots… I’m basically making all the cool stuff that I fear is too childish to go in my own home! 🙂 But that’s what being an uncle is all about, right? Doing the fun stuff and spoiling my nephew with handmade gifts! This is where my Cricut Maker is…

Bauhaus-inspired DIY Travel Chess Set

I’ve been wanting to make a DIY Travel Chess Set for aaaages. I think the idea first started during my trip to Berlin last year (check out my video, here), when I visited the Bauhaus Archive. I fell in love with the harsh angles, minimalist geometry and clean lines that makes Bauhaus so distinctive. In the gift shop, I spotted a really cool wooden chess set. The pieces had been reduced down to their most basic shapes, then carved into…

Make your own Easter Egg stickers!

I don’t know about you, but for me Easter means two things: chocolate and crafts! Although I also feel the same about Christmas… and Halloween… maybe I have a chocolate-eating-craft-making problem?!

There’s just something about it that I feel lends itself to fun, simple and easy-going craft projects. 🙂 With this in mind, I turned to my trusty Cricut to…

How to Make DIY Fabric Flowers

Here in the UK, it’s Mother’s Day next weekend. I usually buy my mum some flowers and make her a handmade card – but this year, I’ve done something a little different… I’ve made some DIY fabric flowers! I always kinda resent buying fresh flowers, since they inevitably die after a few weeks (please tell me I’m not the only one who thinks this?!). But there’s no chance of her flowers dying this year – they’ll be fresh and colourful forever!…
