These are not a creation of mine, but have been hand made in Nepal. I found whole tubs of them at Spittalfields Markets in London and had to buy some for my niece. They are finger puppets and there were all sorts of characters...thought they were quite good to encourage interaction and imagination.
This birthday scarf was a labour of love by Miss J for Merry Risa. Its hand knitted, with beautiful free style beading on the front, and lined with crimson lace on the back. Behold, the tiny stitches and general neatness of the lining!
A site for crafty guys and gals who are keen on DIY, MIY and using our hands to make fabulous interesting things rather than buying factory made. An hommage to the creative spirit and creative reuse that bubbles away in us all. Part handy tips on materials, techniques and patterns, part confessional, part photo in the wallet of the proud crafty parent.
