A few weeks ago, I was asked if I could produce some tutorials for Christmas projects to the Make with Me website. I haven't really done any proper tutorials before but I fancied the challenge!
First up, I made some little tree decorations -
Cute little Christmas presents! I think these would look really sweet tied with ribbon to special presents too. This is a really simple idea that even children can make with a little supervision.
The second project is for a drawstring patchwork gift sack -
This is an ideal project for anyone looking to begin making patchwork but doesn't know where to begin! I love these sacks, they're a great 'eco' alternative to paper gift bags and not only can they be used year after year, but they can also be used throughout the year to store things in - i.e. decorations or even children's toys etc.
The message behind the Make with Me website is all about promoting crafting and creating together, as a family, with friends or as part of the community. Why not hold a crafting morning, charging a little entrance/participation fee and donate the money to Mencap which is the charity behind the initiative.
To view the tutorials that I've submitted, hop on over to the projects section of the Make with Me website to find 2 of my designs with easy step-by-step instructions.
And if you make any of these projects, there's also a facebook page so that you can upload photos of your crations!
