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.Elastic Book Strap

Kids: Homework Station To Go
Kids and homework can be a tricky thing at the best of times. Fitting homework into the weekly routine around after school activities can be even trickier.
