Hi Everyone,

So, last year I started working with one of my favourite brands in the whole world - Hobbycraft. It was an absolute dream come true to write projects for their blog, so I thought it would be so fun to show you and share links to all my 2019 projects. Plus it means you can bookmark them for future crafting plans.

So first up, my first ever blog post was this Animal cushion:

You can see all supplies lists and instructions here: https://www.hobbycraft.co.uk/ideas/sewing/how-to-sew-a-simple-animal-cushion It's a fun pattern that uses minimal amounts of fabric and would be fabulous for a new baby gift or update to a nursery. 

Next up was my cross-back apron. This has been very popular and includes printable templates too. I loved making this and the style is so easy to wear. Find all links and instructions here: https://www.hobbycraft.co.uk/ideas/sewing/how-to-sew-a-cross-back-apron

Next was this star quilt. I was really looking forward to making this one as I've been wanting to get into modern quilting. This was such a fun design to do and it really gave me the patchwork bug. I was definitely really proud of this make, mainly because it was the largest quilt I've ever made.

Next up is a cute Halloween costume. Because kids love colour and they don't have to be scary! I played with the designs in this tulle fabric and made a headdress to match. Also how adorable is this model!?! Full tutorial here: https://www.hobbycraft.co.uk/ideas/sewing/how-to-sew-a-halloween-tutu-and-headband

So now we come to projects made for this season. First it was this cute quote wall hanging perfect to make for a sentimental Valentine's Day gift. I used some really nice colours for this and I was really happy playing with typography and felt.

I then made another quilt! Obviously I did a good enough job on the first one haha. I was really happy playing with the geometric shapes of this and I absolutely love the fat quarter sets. The colour combination is perfect for easter I think, but would still be a perfect design for a new baby. Full instructions here: https://www.hobbycraft.co.uk/ideas/sewing/how-to-sew-a-bunny-quilt

Lastly I made these cute Bunny Ear Scrunchies. They're the perfect project for an afternoon, a quick gift or just to use up some fabric scraps from other projects. Find supplies lists and instructions here: https://www.hobbycraft.co.uk/ideas/sewing/how-to-make-bunny-scrunchies

Hope you enjoy browsing the Hobbycraft blog. Let me know if you make anything of mine. I would love to see.
Happy Handmade!
