Most useful craft projects

The gorgeous Allison Sadler of the People Shop recently featured me as her Maker of the Week. For the feature I went back into the archives for photographs of craft projects I have done and it got me thinking about what makes have and have not survived in my own home. Anything that has lived on is a sign of a good make, I always think. Today, I want to share with you my top 5 most successful and enduring craft projects…

1. Pouffe

I have to say I am so glad I made this Liberty print pouffe. It is probably the most used item I have ever made and Jules and I argue over it most evenings as it is so much comfier having your feet up on this when sitting on our sofa. Find the full post here.

2. Hanging planter

I featured this in my recent Urban Jungle Bloggers post and realised just how useful this planter is in my kitchen. It saves precious kitchen space by hanging and it is so great having herbs within an arm’s reach. Find the tutorial here.

3. Candles

I made these very recently and I’ve already made another batch and had requests from friends to make them one. They are quite simply brilliant and have already saved me money. Find the tutorial here.

4. Cushions

One of the first things I learnt to sew was an envelope cushion and it is still one of the most useful things I can make. I love being able to pick fabrics and within minutes sew them together to make a cushion. Find the tutorial here.

5. Cot tidy

I made this for my friend, Betty, and she has reliably informed me that it has been a really useful thing to have. This is also my most popular and searched for post to date so I’m guessing mums must like cot tidies! Find the full tutorial here.
