If you’ve got a jumper you can’t bear to part with but can’t bear to wear, here is a way to keep them close to you - stitched into some big, warm, fluffy hearts! This would also be a really sweet project to use with kids clothes that they’ve grown out of that you want to keep too!
Dipping anything in chocolate improves almost everything, I’m sure most of you can agree. These adorable pops are almost too cute to eat, but I’m sure I could bring myself to eat one…or two. HH has lots of fun pretzel pop projects, so make sure to click through for more!
New new obsession is quilting (if you follow me on Pinterest you will be nodding your head!) so this little project caught my eye. Skirts are one of the easiest things to sew, all you need is some fabric and elastic, but this little quilt pocket adds some real sweetness to what would otherwise be a plain skirt. Just watch out, because you might get addicted to quilting too!

If you can cut triangles and glue them down, you can create an equally amazing piece of art just like the one pictured! Modern & geometric design generally fits in with most interiors, and of course you can customise the colours to suit - I would do pinks, greys, and of course… gold!
That’s right, neoprene - as in wetsuit fabric! Normally I would run a mile from any piece of clothing made from this material, but made into a flirty little pink mini skirt it has won me over! The fabric gives it a lovely structual quality and actually looks quite comfy! Plus the beauty of neoprene is you don’t have to hem it or add a zip.
This cake is all of my favourite things in one hit - meringue, chocolate mousse, chocolate, chocolate glaze, meringue, chocolate. Did I mention the chocolate mousse? I did? OK. This is certainly not something you would eat every day, but my 30th birthday is coming up, and… you should eat your favourite things on your birthday right!?
This is such a clever idea! The ‘aida cloth’ for this project is made out of…felt! That’s right, felt! Once you’ve drawn up your grid, you then punch the holes to cross stitch through. This is such a fun project and would be great for kids to have a go at. My mind is brimming with the different designs you could achieve with this - think 60’s mod flowers, zig zags, words, multi-colour squares - check out Etsy for inspiration and Pinterest for free cross stitch designs too!
Valentine’s day is a day of love - and not just for a boyfriend, girlfriend, wife or husband - show your love to your friends, kids, family, anyone who you want to spoil! These adorable little valentine’s are part of a great Valentine’s Day blog hop, so make sure you follow the links for more freebie goodness!
Tulle skirts aren’t super practical, but sometimes you need something completely impractical to wear! It’s super girly, twirly and fun and you know what.. it’s not that hard to sew. Whip one up in white, pink, black or even grey would be sweet, and put it on when you’re needing a happy outfit!
The fox is my favourite animal, so I’m keen on any craft that involves one! My sister’s birthday is coming up and she loves eye masks so I’m thinking this might be a good project to make as a gift. Or for myself… hmm, maybe I’ll need to make two!
These pajama pants are so pretty - I would wear these outside! I’m on a bit of a fabric kick at the moment, and have been obsessively poring over the beautiful fabrics at Fabric Worm. I suggest you have a look there for some nice material to make a pair of pjs that are totally you! Straight up - this is an advanced sewing project! Mainly because it involves shirring, which involves using elastic thread… which can be very difficult! But it’s still a really fun project so if you’re keen, go for it!
If you have a kid, then you’ll love The Kids Dept. It’s full of amazing style for the little ones in your life! And though this necklace is meant to be for your mini-me, I see no harm in rocking it yourself! If you’re not a dog lover, try any little plastic animal - maybe an owl or fox?
I always have so much trouble finding duvet covers I like. The problem is that I get in my head what the perfect one would be, then when I can’t find this in the stores I get despondent! I love the idea of making my own, which has occurred to me but the how has been what held me back. This is a fantastic tutorial on how to make a duvet to perfectly fit your bed (another problem for some of us with high/oddly shaped beds!) using a vintage sheet or any fabric you like. I especially love the trim at the end!
