A craft a week challenge…Week 1


If you didn’t see my previous post, I have decided to set myself the goal of completing a craft a week through 2014. I love Pinterest and am forever pinning lovely craft ideas and DIY’s but never get around to actually making them. So, this year I am going to try and make something every week , it might be something really small and quick like washi tape covered bull dog clips or nail art to something a bit more fancy…like a dress for myself or Audrey.

You can check out my inspiration board on Pinterest here and if you fancy joining me let me know (even if you can’t manage one a week) and I will link through to your crafts too!

So, week 1… If you are a Crafty mag or Mollie Makes reader you will know you get a little free project on every cover. I have been saving mine up for a rainy day so now is the time to use them. I started with this months Mollie Makes gift as I fancied a new brooch for my winter coat. Below is the result…

If you want to join me, leave links to your projects in the comments below and I’ll re-post them through the week.

Here’s to a crafty year!
