We first made these Leaf Lanterns about three years ago at German Toddler Group – one of the other carers with tons of group crafting experience showed us how to make them. And I totally fell in love! Especially as they were SO easy to make and even the little ones could enjoy joining in. […]

We do love getting dressed up and I do love making the kids’ some fancy dress costumes myself. Halloween Fancy Dress is a great time to get creative with the kids. Don’t invest in expensive costumes, that they quickly grow out of, but make some of these easy No Sew Costume Ideas many of which […]
Remember how many moons ago, I made some “No Sew” bunting? Well…. recently a good friend of mine got married and we needed LOTS of bunting in a hurry. We made an even simple version of “No Sew Bunting“…. no iron or sewing machine in sight. Result – lots of wedding bunting in about […]
Oh my, this “”How To make a No Sew Alice Band” – must be my quickest and craftiest cheat EVER! The idea came from my Mother in Law, apparently she had them as a child. I added some no sew craftiest by whipping out the stapler and hey presto – bright colourful Alice Bands….. I […]
This week’s tutorial is a lovely easy how to make a tutu… Though I am getting better and keener at sewing, I do love all things no sew, as not everyone likes to sew or has a sewing machine. So when Anna from The Imagination Tree shared this no sew tutu with me, I knew […]
Welcome to this week’s How to…make (almost) No Sew Cupcakes. I say “almost”… if you use these as pinchusions, no sewing is needed. If you let your children play with them (as toys of course, not pincushions!!) you could probably get away with a hot glue gun. If you don’t have one, a tiny bit […]
This week we have a fun and crafty idea from Kim and her blog Kims Kandy Kreations. I know Kim from her fun weekend link up parties. Today she shares her clever yarn ball lights… Just make sure you have heat resistant glue OR don’t leave these on over night… or use low heat emmitting fairy […]

Each is lovingly made and beautiful. From bunting, to mobiles… Really worth a look! And today we are lucky enough that Stacey shares […]
Welcome back to this week’s how to.. Today I bring you “How to make Lavender Wands” – or Lavendelstäbe – another little left over from my (Germanic) “teen-hood”. I think I like the “lavender wand” name more – makes it sound all fairy like. I made two today and immediately they were “claimed” by Red Ted and his playdate. A scented wand each. Perfect.

Remember the wonderful and beautiful Helen from Ickle Babe from a few month’s back? She came up with this great way of “recycling” your child’s favourite t-shirt that they have either outgrown or that has stained or been damaged. It was fabulous and you must go and take a look. Helen really is a very […]
Love the beautiful lavender around this time of year? Think it is a shame when it all goes to waste in a few weeks time? Don’t have the time (or inclination) to sew a lavender bag or little lavendar pillow? Look no further. No Sew Lavender Bags are here. This is so ridiculously easy, that […]
