Hi everyone!

I thought I'd start this to share tips and ideas for anyone that's looking for things to do now that we all have so much time on our hands!
It's here and not on Facebook so that more people can join in - feel free to share pics of disasters as well as successes!
If there's enough interest we can maybe arrange some show-and-tell video calls but let's see... Few ideas to get started below - Pinterest and Youtube also good for inspiration and how-tos.

Supplies
It's a mixed picture over whether it's safe for some larger companies with warehouses to continue sending out orders, but Post Offices are still open and small businesses are still going.
Dressmaking fabrics - https://ohsew.co.uk and https://www.materialgirllaura.co.uk - both one girl working on their own.
eBay, Etsy and Facebook Marketplace.
Charity Shops - most are shutting up shops but some still have online sites

Love the ideas and plan to try some of these alongside some of my knitting projects that have been ongoing for a few years 😂

I don’t know how to do these, but saw these pop up on my feed and had to share. She mentions tutorials coming soon.

Sharing Becky and Jacob’s amazing Easter eggs!
A tribute to Jacob’s grandad (my uncle) who’s a radiographer (love the x ray eggs!) and for those not on Netflix, the Tiger King and Carole Baskin!

Not glued down yet, just an idea. Considering some text to go with it but don’t want it to be cheesy, thoughts?
Shame there aren’t blue tulips!

The petals are lovely . You could place them upside down to make skirts for fairies on cards and use other petals for their wings.

After a few sewing disasters recently I have gone back to basics to get back into it. This was really quick and easy (apart from my inability to cut in a straight line and jamming my sewing machine that is 😂) as everything gets turned inside out so there’s very little stitching on show and it doesn’t really matter about being accurate.
I have enough of this fabric for a couple more goes if anyone wants me to post a square but could also use old clothes cut up.

This is the tutorial I followed but there are loads more similar ones https://youtu.be/iGu5hzrxJT4

The paper prawn tutorial I mentioned before is online now. She says it can be done using cereal boxes:

I’ve finally made something useful 😂

No elastic needed which is good as it’s apparently in short supply. Not medical grade but good enough for the supermarket. Instructions here : https://youtu.be/tjcBX52tZn4

Macrame coasters - Just needs string (or maybe garden twine?) and a pin. Would like to see these in multi coloured strings.

Inkwell Arts is a cafe and workshop in Leeds run by Mind. In normal times they do classes but for now they have some online tutorials, including making soap and bath bombs, felting, weaving and some options for kids.

Is anybody still there? Carrying on in case any of this is helpful to anyone at all, but would be good to get some responses.

Playing with my new sewing machine. What do you really not want to wear on a day like today?
