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.

Kids Craft – Autumn Leaf Painting

Craft/ Kids Craft

What a FUN craft for the cooler months – Autumn/Fall and Winter. Our favourite part was collecting the leaves- trudging through big piles of crunchy fallen leaves throwing them all about whilst looking for the perfect ones to paint!

A great combination  – a nature-based activity,  outside play, and kids craft all in one.
