    A little pin puff

    Crafters use an awful lot of pins. Hijabis (someone who wears hijab/ headscarf) use a whole ton more. As one of both, can you imagine the amount of pins I have lying around? And when you use pins every day, having to store them in those pesky pin wheels is a real pain…especially when you’ve got one hand over your head awkwardly holding your pashmina in the perfect position, having to wrangle out a pin one-handed is not the easiest thing. So the perfect solution? A cute pin cushion that would look pretty alongside my perfumes and jewellery on my dressing table as well as being practical.

    A little bit of heart

    I’ve had this little swatch of ribbon embroidery lying around the house for a while now. Made on a little scrap of cotton as a tutorial for a niece of mine, I couldn’t find a reason to keep it, but then again, couldn’t find a reason to throw it away. A dilemma I’m sure you’re all too familiar with! Next thing you know it’s been sitting on your desk for a year looking forlorn and unloved. So to help you out, here’s a little idea for those scraps of material you can’t bear to part with: a scented cushion.
