I have already been showered with so much love as a mum-to-be and feel extraordinarily lucky to have so many friends and colleagues who have shared in my joy of becoming a mum. One thing I am conscious of is making sure I am always thankful and showing my thanks in a unique and meaningful way.
One of my goals for this year and next is to learn how to sew my own clothes. I have this dream of having a closet full of clothes I completely made myself. This may be a dream too big for reality but I can hope!
I've seen some beginner patterns and tutorials on Pinterest but even they seemed out of my reach. Until I saw the pillow case dress (for kids!) but I thought I could easily adapt it to an adult top. After a few days of thinking how to make one I thought I had enough of an idea to give it a try.

Happy Friday! Today I am so excited to welcome Claire from Claireabellemakes who is bringing you a gorgeous DIY...

One of my favourite things to do is browse fabric stores; lingering over the lace and ribbons. I have an unhealthy obsession with lace. I personally believe the world would be a lot better place with a lot more lace in it.
Today's craft is a beautiful folded heart garland. I first saw these in a shop, took a sneaky picture; folded and stapled till I worked out how they were made. There were a few failed attempts! This is often the way I work, I like seeing something then trying to find out a way to make it my own.
