Craft coastal creations

I'm constantly collecting shells, pebbles & other beachy touches for my flat, but have just found a blog that takes seaside-obsession to another level. A Beach Cottage - Life By the Sea. Be prepared for a serious dose of home envy.

How Tuesday: double crochet

It's Tuesday again peeps so it's time for another lesson in how to do. This week we are picking up our hooks and going loopy as we show you how to double crochet.

How Tuesday: crochet a granny square

The great thing about granny square's is they're great for newbies and perfect for using up scrap yarn. Once you get the hang of it, sew them together and make a granny crocheted blanket. They're all the rage on the catwalk don'tcha know.

Friday i'm in love: a right royal treat

A few weeks ago whilst rummaging at my local bootie I came across this magazine, a 50 year old Woman's Mirror - Royal Wedding gold! Friday i'm in love!

Knit project! Be patriotic, wear a union jack

You've made the bunting and knitted the corgies so what next? Fear not Spotters, look no further for your next patriotic project we have just the knit for you!

Red, white & blue craft ideas

OK so I couldn't resist dipping my toes a little further into the waters of royal wedding fever! Royal-themed colours are big news this spring. And luckily, they make instantly stand-out craft projects too. As part of our colour inspirations series, I've scoured Flickr for my favourite handmade projects with a red, white & blue theme.

Folksy find of the week

This spring the craft world is buzzing with british-themed projects, from papercut London to royal wedding fever. One of my favourites is this mobile phone case by Hello Clementine.

Paper cuts will rule the world!

After this week's ric-rac confession, I have to admit I have a new love which is making me go ga ga - paper cuts. Intricate ones, folksy ones, laser cut ones... love them! Especially these paper banners from Famille Summerbelle!

Friday i'm in love

Hello there, it's Friday again so that means it's time for me to tell you about some of the treasures that have had me cooing in the last week.
