How super cute is this necklace made from a thimble and some colourful pins, it’s like a little mini sewing garden. Not only is it a great way to make a statement about your love of making but we don’t know about you but it really gets our creative juice flowing with ideas! The necklace has been designed by Laura over at The Wind and the Sail and we are really pleased she has let us share this tute with you.

Stitch 'a' long

We all know stitching is as old as the hills. Not only does it have its place in the record books through the making of garment essentials but it has a firm place in history as a decorative art.Through many a stitch, some of the greatest pieces of artwork the world over have been created by talented stitchers. What we really find exciting is the trend to replicate absolutely anything through stitches, with nothing too strange to put a needle to. How lovely is the simplicity of this paper plane project created by the girl herself Little Lovelies By Allison
