Washi Tape TV Make Over – Home Sweet Home

This entry is part 1 of 52 in the series Home Sweet Home

So after all of the work I’ve done on our apartment, there are only a few things left that I’m unhappy with. The TV area is definitely one of them. It’s like a back hole of suck.

Before I got to the actually organising and the shelving etc I wanted to do something a bit easier: make over the actual tv.

How To Make A Puppy Mattress – Lottie’s Home Sweet Home

This entry is part 2 of 52 in the series Home Sweet Home

Miss Lottie’s new-ish house isn’t nearly as soft and comfy as her old strawberry was :( So I set about making it a bit more awesome by making a little mattress she could sleep on in the bottom. I’ve tried putting blankets and regular pillows in but she just shoves them to the back >_<

Anyway the end result was really cute!

Crochet Needle Case Tutorial

For today’s tutorial let’s make a knitting/crochet needle case! I say this like it’s for your benefit… but really it’s something that I have desperately needed for like 10 years and been too lazy to do.

But look, now my needles are so neat and I won’t lose them anymore!
