pin interest

PRIME PICKS These James’ Giant Pear (and Apple) Pouffes were designed by Anne Claire Petit and are sold through UK-based Rowen & Wren Homewares. They’re crocheted from organic cotton, and the pear is 70cm high. You’ve got to agreed that it seems a waste to use them as common-or-garden footrests when they look more like designer sculptures. Find out more by visiting www.rowenandwren.co.uk. A WHIZZ IN THE KITCHEN There’s a sweet crafty ‘makes’ book out called Big Little Felt Fun – and the title pretty much tells you all you need to know, other than the fact that there are 60+ projects between its covers. We thought we’d show you this pretty Mixmaster and baked-temptations photograph as a tease. Sweet, eh? The book’s compiled by Jeanette Lim, published by Lark and distributed in…

pretzel pincushion

Use pins with white heads to look like salt crystals, and you have the perfect NY-style pretzel, all knotted and tasty – well, perhaps not so tasty, in this case … but functional, and quirky! It’s made by Abby Glassenberg, of While She Naps, whileshenaps.com, who’s been kind enough to share her tutorial with Homespun readers. (This project was inspired by a work in More Scrap Saver’s Stitchery, by Sandra Lounsbury Foose, published by Farm Journal Crafts.) Materials: • 22 x 3in strip of brown fabric• Brown thread• Fibrefill stuffing• Pins with white heads How to: 1 Fold the strip lengthwise. Using a1/4in seam allowance, stitch down the long side, leaving a 2in opening halfway down. Stitch the short sides, curving them to give the pretzel curved ends. Trim the seam allowance close to…

salvage

First glass honours Degree of difficulty: 1, because this is just about as simple as a craft project can get. And it starts with plain-Jane bottles that might otherwise take up recycling-bin space. These decorated jars can either be for breakfast-to-go or as a novel presentation at individual morning place-settings. Here’s our easy-peasy how-to: for the lids, cut strips of fine lace to fit snugly around the cap rims, then use a couple of dots of glue on the caps to secure the fabric in place; for the jar itself, cut broader bands of cotton lace and use double-sided tape to hold in place. Boast about your toast Never waste an opportunity to make your home something really special – and that applies to the smallest elements of design. To wit: slapping a…
