Friday

It's Finally Friday - ideas for the weekend

Hi there! Happy half-term, let the fun commence! For this weeks It's Finally Friday, I am in a particularly creative mood, so I dug out some of my crafty books, as they sound perfect for some of you!

The two books I have chosen are Crafty Creatures and Stitch-By-Stitch (both by Jane Bull)!

Crafty Creatures

This book is a step-by-step guide to creating your own little animals, using skills like sewing and knitting. Even though I haven't actually used this before - I have just read through it several times, I can already tell this is the perfect instructions book if you have no clue how to sew or knit (like me), using very easy-to-follow language and taking you through each stage in sufficient detail. With instructions for pretty much any animal, insect or bird, anyone with a creative streak with love this book, beginner or expert!



Stitch-by-stitch

This is rather similar to Crafty Creatures, however it focuses more on the different skills of sewing like embroidery and applique, to name just a couple! And as well as just making animals, this book will teach you how to make little pictures, cushion covers and clothes accessories, just by sewing. Like the other one, I haven't actually used Stitch-by-stitch before, but flicking through I can see that this is a great book for all!

This Friday, bank-holiday weekend and half-term, go buy yourself a copy of either book, and get MAKING!
It's Finally Friday - what are you up to in the weekend/half-term?
