Tutorial: Felt Hairclips

Hey everyone!

In this week's workshop we made a variety of different hairclips - bows and flowers! If you missed the session but still want a go at crafting your own, or simply want a refresher of the instructions, I've put together some tutorial information for you.

To make some cute bows like these, follow the link to Oliver and S, where you'll find all the instructions. You simply need the pattern, which can be found by enlarging and printing out the photo above or as a download on the website, felt, a needle and thread. You can then embellish them as you wish and glue them to hairclips!

In the above photos, you can see some visual tutorials on how to make your own felt flowers! These can then be turned into pretty badges and hairclips. Again, all the materials you will need are felt, a needle and thread and some decorations like buttons.

Happy crafting!

Tutorial: Scratch Off Maps

Hey everyone!

In last week's workshop, we made scratch off maps. These are laminated maps with the countries of the world painted over, then when you have visited a country, you simply get a penny or use your fingernail to scratch the paint off, revealing the country underneath! It's a great way to document everywhere you've been to, perfect for people who love to travel.

For those of you who didn't manage to attend the workshop, here is a video tutorial documenting how to make your own scratch off map, including the materials you will need.

To get your creative juices flowing, here are a few photos from the workshop so you get an idea for how the finished product should look:

Happy crafting!
