I love to make things, draw them, laminate them, sew them, glue them , cut them out, and in general make a big mess! I never really needed an excuse to get crafty but at the moment I am making things to save money. It is amazing what you can make for practically nothing when you use things up or make something stunning for under a pound. It all started when I got creative to keep the cost of Christmas down. On this site you will find a combination of my ideas and links to other sites. I will only post things which I believe are genuinely useful or beautiful (I do love that William Morris quotation) , don’t use very specialist equipment (sheets of felt are in, needle felting equipment is out) and don’t look too difficult (although this is quite subjective).
