It’s true: homemade burgers always taste better, but handmade burgers are best. Treat the family to takeaway with our amigurumi burger stacked with fillings. Fresh from the grill, this little guy makes great play food for kids of a quirky gift for adults – make him today!
For festival goers we have a DIY jewellery project using retro seed beads and a mini backpack – that’s accessories for one outfit sorted – plus a bunting knitting pattern that’ll help you recognise your tent. Learn how to make your own espadrilles, sew a vintage tie for men, get a simple cross-back tshirt sewing pattern and a crochet cowl pattern made with yarn in ice cream colours.
Also in this issue we cover the chalk trend and share three ways to bring them dusty pastels into your wardrobe and outside for summer gatherings. There’s a fab chalkboard-style table runner that doubles as party entertainment – you have to try it! Light up your lounge with a DIY lampshade, find a corner to display your love for pineapples and embroidery, and keep babas oh-so comfy with our handmade bolster cushion sewing pattern.
