Secret book

I made this book for my niece who is really into Harry Potter. Hopefully she will have fun making more things to keep inside the secret compartment. A great way to recycle an old book!


Mini zipper pouch

These cute zipper keyring pouches were gifts for a friend and my daughter this Christmas. Here is a link to the free pouch pattern which was really easy to follow. The only tricky bit was sewing the tabs in place. The keyring clips are from lanyards my husband receives every time he attends a business conference so this seemed a great way to reuse them.

Mini tray


My handy husband made this tray from off-cuts, then I painted it with the grey paint left over from the garden shed. Inside, I lined it with some pretty wrapping paper protected by sticky backed plastic. This would also make a nice trinket tray for a dressing table – or a small tea tray!
