Another pastel makeover!

Yesterday was an op shopping day,YAY! I found this cute cane dolls chair squashed into the basket bin and thought immediately...I could do something with that!
 Add a lick of lilac paint and a few pretty cushions and here it is! I just wish it was adult size however I think it will be the prefect size for a Blythe doll....but that is another story!

I love these colours together the most.

More plastic purses

Recently I had a spurt of sewing excitement (it comes and goes) and whipped up a few more pretty plastic purses. I love small projects that I can actually get finished and it's so much fun mixing and matching colours and fabrics together. The plastic can be a little fiddly at times, but it's so rewarding when they turn out ok!

I have a few more 'plastic' ideas so hopefully I will get cracking on those very soon. Too many crafty ideas....not enough time!

Felt macarons

Still on a macaron high, and inspired once again by Mollie Makes ,I've been crafting cute little felt macarons. I'm usually not a huge fan of hand sewing, but with these I have actually enjoyed it...maybe because the stitches are well hidden so don't have to be perfect!

Such a wonderful magazine, I don't know what I'd do without it now!

Homemade macarons

I think we all love macarons don't we?? About 2 years ago I had my first attempt at making them and they were absolute Maca-ruins! I was devastated,they went in the bin and that was the end of that....until yesterday. Feeling brave I gave it another go, and here they are! Not perfect, far from it but a million times better than my first batch.

 A few for my lovely Emma as a belated birthday treat.
 All tied up with string.
On another note, I have been crafting away on an exciting new project.....but SSHHHH, it's a secret for now! :)
