Under the Sea and Mermaid sewing adventures


I don’t know how they do it!? Ever issue just keeps getting better and better. I’ve been an article contributor to One Thimble magazine for a few years now and each time I’m researching handmade goodies to include in my gift guide article I’m always amazed and excited about the theming for each issue. I think to myself surely they can’t beat this issue with the next release BUT… Oh my gosh, I’m in love with Issue 16!

Mermaids, mermaids and more mermaids! Soft pastels, flowing maxi dresses, spring shorts and tanks, super cool  merman and a dress up pattern every little girl will want!

Welcome to an ‘Under the Sea’ adventure..

Sew a Softie 2017

Sew a Softie – Handmade Little Houses

Blog Hop Love/ Challenge/ Craft/ DIY/ Tutorial

It is Sew a Softie month and we are very excited to be joining in the fun this year.

What is Sew a Softie you might ask? Firstly, besides being a whole lot of fun, it is an initiative aimed at igniting a love of hand sewing in the next generation. Sew a Softie’s founder Trixie hopes to encourage parents and kids to turn off the tv, step away from the computer and put down that phone and discover the fun of creating a simple softie together from scratch. Get creative, have fun- there are no rules and you don’t need to be a sewing whiz to give it a try.

This year Sew a Softie runs from July 1st to 31st. Myself and 30+ other crafty bloggers from around the world are joining in to share a whole lot of fun softie tutorials for you.

You can follow the 2017 blog hop here– there is a new tutorial added each day. Scroll down to the end of my tutorial to see some of my favourite projects from the list too.

Maybe it is already a regular event at your place, or it is still on your list of things to do. We try to have a games night every second weekend – our little miss 7 loves it! Although she doesn’t love it when little miss 20 months keep pulling the game off the table and throwing the parts around the room.. It’s all part of the fun, right?
