Autumn has hit New Zealand in just a few weeks! It feels like only yesterday we were enjoying the beautiful perks of summer. I’m excited for winter though, it means warm wooly jackets, scarves, boots, trips to the snow and hot cocoas in bed on rainy days.
What does Autumn mean to you?

Yes these are toe socks, its sooo cold here at the moment that I wear them allll day!
Hey guys! Today Im teaming with diary of a mad crafter blog. Awhile ago she had done a DIY on fabric painting, I loved it and decided I wanted to test her method on a pair of tights! I LOOOVE paisley patterns and happened to find the perfect wood stencil at a trade aid store. So today we have both tested this method again, such fun huh?!
I actually started by cutting a long piece of cardboard so that the paint wouldn’t seep through to the other side. On a piece of paper or ice-cream container lid smooth your paint out so its reasonably even. Dab stencil on and press down firmly onto fabric. Repeat… and leave to dry over night. Remember to read any instructions you get on the fabric paint bottle. You may need to iron or wash before using.
Sweeeet winter accessory! xo Bec
Hello! Day 4 of mine and Alanas pattern project!
Its getting into winter weather here in New Zealand which means tissues are a must have! (I hate being caught out in public with a dribbly nose and no tissue and we all know wiping it on your sleeve just aint that pretty) So todays DIY is a super cute way to carry tissues in your bag at all times.
Supplies needed: Fabric or felt that you love, needle and thread, scissors.
Firstly lay out your fabric and measure the size of a standard tissue, you need to make sure they fit inside and leave about 5mm on each side for sewing. Cut to correct size.
I then cut out a long scoop so that either side had a wee tab to sew along. Also this makes it super easy to refill with new tissues.
Sew along the edges and fill with tissues. How easy was that?! Now you can look forward to having a cold. Sort of. Maybe not…xo Bec
