VINTAGE CINEMA SEATS

VINTAGE CINEMA SEATS

Followers of my facebook page will have already seen a sneak peek of these in their former incarnation. This is a pair of old cinema seats that I managed to pick up from Second Chance reclamation centre in Baltimore.  I saw them whilst I was […]

VINTAGE NEW YORK DECOUPAGE CHAIR

VINTAGE NEW YORK DECOUPAGE CHAIR

This is my second decoupage project. I’m still quite in love with the idea of gluing maps to everything I own, I’ve started to stare absent-mindedly around the room, looking for my next victim. I got this chair from an amazing salvage yard in Baltimore […]

MINI MOD DRESS -with crochet collar

MINI MOD DRESS -with crochet collar

  This is a tiny 60’s style dress that I made for my niece. I really wanted to make something with a crochet collar because I kept seeing pictures of them on Pinterest. I made up the pattern and guessed the size, I don’t see […]

KITTY CAT HAT

KITTY CAT HAT

My crochet skills are gradually improving and as my friend is expecting her first child I have made this for her. Anyone who has met me will be aware that I’m not the most maternal individual, I’m not one of those people who looks at […]

Sleepy Easter Bunny slippers

Sleepy Easter Bunny slippers

These are some little bunny shoes that I made for my youngest niece. She’s too tiny to fully appreciate the joy of an Easter egg (why does the chocolate taste so much better just by being egg shaped?) so I felt that these would make […]

TINY CROCHET TOYS

TINY CROCHET TOYS

I struggle to sit still so I have been trying to teach myself to crochet in order to keep my fidgety fingers occupied of an evening. I made these two dinky toys for my nieces as my first experiment. I’m still fairly convinced that crochet […]

VINTAGE MAP CHAIR

VINTAGE MAP CHAIR

I haven’t added a ‘making’ post in while. That’s partly because the cold weather has just made me want to stay inside and bake and partly because this chair took a little longer than my usual crafty bits and pieces. I saw something similar posted […]

APPLIQUE TREE CUSHION

APPLIQUE TREE CUSHION

I think that my mum might be one of the few people I know who is yet to receive one of my Colonial Cravings makes. But no one escapes forever and it’s her Birthday so that seems like a good excuse to make something for […]

SEASIDE BAG FOR LIFE

SEASIDE BAG FOR LIFE

This is a reusable bag that I made for a friends Birthday. I needed a small gift that I could send home as I am making her wait for her main present until she comes to visit.  She’s a fellow Cornish girl so has an […]

GLASTONBURY FESTIVAL CUT-OUT

GLASTONBURY FESTIVAL CUT-OUT

This is a cut-out that I made for my friends birthday. We share a love of all things Glastonbury festival related and were hoping to be able to meet up for this years festival but unfortunately neither of us managed to get tickets. I spent […]
