The #wikstenoversizedkimonojacket is everything I hoped for and more! After lamenting over my fabric choices for far too long, it’s finally done and I couldn’t be happier. You can read about all the details and see more pictures up on the blog today.
.
I made this version out of a lightweight Pendleton wool coating, lined with some lawn from the shop and I couldn't be happier with how it turned out. It's so cozy and makes the perfect layering piece! I've already got at least two more that I want to make now...

A very simple but effective Christmas tree craft today. Glue 3 lollipop sticks together in a triangle shape. (I used super glue for stability but keep it well away from little fingers!) The first was decorated with pom poms. We found PVA glue more successful than a glue stick. The second was covered in glue and then we wound pipe cleaners around the triangle. Sprinkle with glitter (if you are happy to use it) whilst the glue is still wet. Hang with cotton, wool, string or a pipe cleaner. Easy for little fingers to do and a quick result!

This week is the official start to the holiday season, or, as it could also be called, the “more-of-everything” season. Think about it, between Thanksgiving and New Years, our lives become supersized. We typically spend more, eat more, drink more, travel more, celebrate more, and we likely see more of our friends and family than almost any other time of the year. It’s both a wonderful and crazy time.
For those who run creative businesses, the holidays also mean there are markets to prepare for, weekends devoted entirely to selling at fairs, the excitement of more sales made and the pressure to package and ship last minute gift orders out the door to your customers.
All that said, the one thing there isn’t more of during this more-of-everything-season, are hours in the day. We still only get twenty-four of them. Unfair!
This week’s Monday Motivation Challenge is a simple tip that will help you stay calm, creative and hopefully more sane this holiday.

Look at this gorgeous slot together Victorian Doll's House. A lovely project for a family or mother and child to do together with a finished article that will be played with indefinitely. The kind of gift my Mum would have liked to give at Christmas, as we always had something to make in the afternoon. The attention to detail is just incredible, and I love the fact you can even slot different food items into the oven to cook. £25 for the factual book, slot-together kit and sturdy box.#usborne #usbornebooksathome #dollshouse #victorian #slottogether #makeanddo #christmasideas #presents #dolls #craft #christmas #books

Wreath Making Season! This little guy made from clippings off my evergreens, dogwood branches snipped out of the ditch, Virginia creeper vine from around my deck, fern fronds from my garden, and a few odds and ends out of my "make and do box". Getting ready for a workshop I am doing for a friend's Christmas party.... #christmaswreath #naturalwreath #makeanddo #playing #foraging

Today is the last day to save 15% on ALL fabric and sewing patterns in the shop!! It’s your last chance to pick up all your holiday-making supplies while they’re on sale!
.
This gorgeous floral scuba knit has been a popular choice lately...it would make the perfect holiday party #lododress, don’t you think? I’m keeping my fingers crossed that we have a work party to go to so I have an excuse to make one for myself...
.
Plus, did you see that @waxandwool’s holiday collection is out? I’m stocking up for the season.

Our Stripe Tencel Jersey is hands down the most popular fabric we have in the shop...it’s a classic! It’s lightweight, but has a really amazing drape. Swipe through to see some of the projects our customers are sewing!⠀
.
Jersey is available in Navy or Crimson stripe. It’s perfect for the #larktee from @grainlinestudio, but would also be great as the #ebonydress from @closetcase.patterns, the #adventuretank from @fancytigercrafts, or the #laneraglan from @heyjunehandmade! Shop all these patterns and more in the shop and save 15% through tomorrow with code HANDMADEHOLIDAYS (don’t forget, the sale is on fabric too!!)

Creatives often undervalue what they make. It's so important to think of your prices based on the value you provide, not just how much it cost you to create.

Been on the hunt for campaign style nightstands foreverrrrrrrr. Problem is always that "real" campaign furniture is pretty small scaled and they would look dinky in our room. Would have loved to do 2 small chest of drawers but there's not enough room. Sooooooo....I found these walnut beauties at @livingspaces and the size, color style and price 🤑 are perfection and I think I in love! 😍😍😍 #livingspaces #bedroom #design #interiordesign #hgtv #hgtvdesign #apartmenttherapy #sodomino #makeanddo

finally using this AMAZING rose gold pleather from @moodfabrics for another #kellyanorak. it doesn’t recover from pins well, so thank goodness I had some paper clips handy 😂📎

I wish I could say it's always like this. But for this half hour it was. We made fairy wings and a crown and a wand from a knitting needle. And listened to the Beatles and Carol King. (Half an hour later we had tears and Ghostbusters) #parentingtheshitoutoflife #makeanddo
