More Pretty Dolls to Make


This week I was busy making some more of my little Travel Dolls. There have been so many new baby girls born in my world lately, so I needed a new stash of handmade gifts for them!

These Travel Dolls are an ideal present for a little girl. They can be used as a decorative cushion in a bedroom or as a doll and bed to play with and especially to take away for a night away from home.

I have previously posted the step-by-step instructions on how to make these dolls – they really are very simple to sew. Hardly any sewing talent required at all!

Enjoy your creative project this week, whatever it may be!

Tea Towel Cushion


This lovely Annabel Trends tea towel has been sitting in amongst my craft projects for a while and I have been wondering about how best to display it.

I had a leftover cushion insert floating around…… so I decided to combine the two! It all happened by accident really. Quite amazingly, the cushion insert fitted absolutely perfectly into the tea towel. Meant to be!  
This project was very easy. I placed the cushion on the tea towel’s wrong side, wrapped the tea towel around the cushion to make the cover and then pinned it.

Then I simply sewed up the sides. I just hand sewed it quickly - no turning out to the right side or anything… it’s all already done!

And then I gave it its pride of place on one of the beds in our cottage. Much better than using the tea towel in the kitchen!

I’ve also previously used tea towels to make pictures and you can see them here.

Happy sewing!
