Happy St David’s Day!
How about celebrating St David’s Day (1st March) by making yourself a tissue paper double-daffodil? Incase you’re wondering a double-daffodil has extra petals so it looks rather like a carnation.
The instructions in my last post for paper peony flowers are easy to adapt – remember to check them out first to understand the basic concept of how to make a tissue paper flower.
Fancy a crafty throw-back session? Get out that tissue paper and make some paper flowers.
All you need is some tissue paper, florist wire, scissors and if you want to be accurate a pen and ruler!
I’m just loving the way these flowers turn out – they remind me of a garden Peony.
Step 1 – Grab yourself some tissue paper sheets – I’m using 8 sheets of A4 straight out of the packet.
This is a step by step guide for making a Yoga Mat Bag or a lovely round bottom drawstring bag. It’s also pretty handy for other things too like storing wrapping paper!
Ok, are you ready?
The bag itself is made out of 2 pieces of fabric – a circle for the bottom and a rectangle which forms the sides of your bag.
Step 1: Calculate the size of your fabric pieces.
Roll up your Yoga Mat and measure its rolled up length (60cm) and diameter (14cm).
This week I was lucky enough to receive a complementary copy of the newly released magazine ‘The Art of Knitting‘.
This month I was invited to lead a workshop for a local community craft group on handmade book-making. The workshop went really well and as several of those attending are keen to make some more I thought I’d write a “how-to” post to share.
