Make it Sewcial... top five favourites July 14 2014

Hello lovelies,

looking back over the past year I realised just how many lovely handmade projects and tutorials I've shared with you here on my blog. I thought It would be a really nice idea to pick my top five favourites to share with you again, just incase you missed them the first time around!



So, first up has absolutely got to be my number 1 favourite the 'up cycled chair' remember this beauty with its minty loveliness and neon colour pop legs? well this project was hugely popular with you guys too, and has also been pinned hundreds of times over on Pinterest. I adore my chair and its become my favourite thing in my craft room too.



Next up at number 2 is this simple but effective paper cut picture 'I love you more than flowers' something you can do in no time at all with instant results, this project would make the perfect handmade gift for your loveliest family and friends, or for a nursery or craft room, just change the words up a bit to suit yourself. 



Sitting nicely at slot number 3 is the 'happy jar' I love this so much, its a cute little tutorial that acts as a constant reminder for us to be grateful for all the lovely things we do everyday. Sometimes when we are really busy, its easy to forget just how much we enjoyed those fish and chips and donuts whilst sitting on the beach, or those gorgeous new boots that make you smile every time you wear them! Not anymore, the 'happy jar' stores all your happy memories away for a rainy day when you might need a little pick me up!



At number 4 is the 'floral headband' just because every girl needs flowers in her life and wearing them in your hair makes you feel like the prettiest girl in the world just for the fun of it and of course they look totally gorgeous too! If you haven't made one already, try it, honestly you'll be twirling round the kitchen like a flower fairy in no time!



And finally, sitting proudly at number 5 is my 'pretty storage tins' tutorial. I can't help but love this make because these tins started life as empty coffee containers that would otherwise have been thrown in the bin, but with a little bit of patterned paper, a pritt stick and just a couple of minutes of your time, they can be transformed into something really useful that barely costs you a bean (pardon the pun!) fantastic stuff hey! 

It really wasn't easy choosing just 5 today, as every week I create things from the heart that I hope you will love and enjoy making too. Which have been your favourites?... and which makes are on your 'to do list?... I would love to see pictures of the projects you've made following my weekly tutorials! 

big love for now
