Friday again?! Where did the week go?

Have you had a crafty week?

This week I’ve collected some sewing projects that you can create for kids. Whether as gifts for friends or grandchildren, or for your own kids, these are useful projects that can be personalised with their favourite fabric.

We often seem to find ourselves out on a number of afternoons a week while one child or the other has classes or practice sessions. The other child meanwhile is stuck with me either in the car or watching the activity, and their homework is…

One of the latest rainbow loom creations at our place is this cute penguin. He has attached himself to Little Miss’ clarinet case and makes it super easy for her to tell which case is hers at school when they all look the same!

But I saw a quick tip somewhere along the line that I used on my Fat Quarter Fizz quiltand I snapped a picture…

Four for Friday Angels crafts

It’s Friday again and my boy, Mr Happy, is home from school sick again. This seems to be a repeating pattern – although today’s fever is a lot easier to handle than last week’s gastro!

In any case I was thinking about angels earlier today – perhaps dreaming that one would help with the housework! – and realised that I have at least four angel crafts already on the Crafty Mummy. So here are four…
