Infinity Wrap Top Project

So I’ve been wanting an infinity dress for aaaages, but they are so expensive, and seem to only come in Bridesmaid-ey colours. I decided to have a go at making one myself, but to make it a little easier for myself I started off attempting a top.

Baby Shower on a Budget

Last year, one of my oldest friends had a beautiful baby boy. While she was pregnant I offered to throw her baby shower. I know a lot of English people are against Americanisms like baby showers and engagement parties but I think they are a fantastic idea. They don’t necessarily have to be about gifts, but the idea of acknowledging and celebrating these huge life milestones is, to me, a lovely one.

Hot Glue Gun Fun: Button Canvas

So I bought a hot glue gun because I saw one in hobbycraft. I always thought that I had TONS of projects that I wanted to make, if only I had a glue gun to make them. So all excited, I bought it, got home and… couldn’t think of a single thing I wanted to make.

Lucky for me I have an adorable niece. She’s not actually my niece, she is the daughter of a friend from college, but we call ourselves her Aunties and she’s always happy to see us (except for a while after Auntie K yelled over some spilt hot tea) so it’s close enough. So anytime I am craving a little craft action with no particular project in mind, I usually create something useless fun for her. Like this Initial Button Canvas. Totally useless but fun for me to make!
