I decided that Dexie needed something else on his bag. For someone who was against commercialisation of children’s things, I’m not doing so well – he’s got a Thomas the Tank Engine bag, a Maisy bag tag and now a Hungry Caterpillar bag tag. Plus his new TTTE sneakers. The front. The back. It’s pretty [...]

About a week ago, I was pottering around the internet looking for some ideas for easter baskets. I saw one idea that looked good, but of course, I didn’t bookmark the page so now I can’t find it. It was a simple idea though, so with a bit of help from Willow, we made two [...]

I have found another pattern that looks a bit more modern. Willow chose the purple elastic, so that’s what I went [...]
