Minecraft Party

Our little Man recently turned 9 so we had a Minecraft Party to celebrate...

We started off with invites made using this minecraft block printable to make envelope/boxes and I downloaded the minecraft font from here to type up the invites that I printed in grass block colours.

Next up was the party favours. I bought green t-shirts from Amazon and using a Creeper template I found online, similar to this one, I fabric painted creeper faces on the front. 

Jacob made some Hama Bead Minecraft squares. I love how when ironed they look pixelated. There is Steve, a pig and an Ender Man. I found the template here.

We kept the decorations quite simple as the lounge was also decorated for Hallowe'en. I used the font I had downloaded to make a Happy Birthday banner and drew creeper and zombie faces on green balloons. For the party bags, I bought green paper bags and found a template online to print the creeper faces directly onto the bags. Most of the guests wore their creeper t-shirts for the party. 

Just before we changed into costumes ready for trick or treating, the candles were blown out and the cake was cut....

Two Minecraft blocks in one cake :)

Book Launch for...The Beginners Guide to Dressmaking - Wendy Ward

I've just got home from a lovely evening at the book launch for Wendy Ward's "The Beginners Guide to Dressmaking" at MIY Workshop. As the evening is over I can finally post pictures of the cakes!

A couple of weeks ago my fellow student Croianna text me asking if I would like to make a cake of Wendy's book with her for the book launch. So a few days ago we got together and had fun decorating a cake.

Here it is... Croianna made the clothes and I did the lettering.

With the left over sponge I made a pair of scissors because which dressmaker/seamstress doesn't have a slight obsession with scissors?!

My little assistant Ruby made me some pins for the fondant pin cushion whilst I added gold powder to the bolt on the scissors.

 And here she is... the lady herself... Wendy Ward, cutting her cake!

Congratulations on your awesome book Wendy and everyone else... go buy a copy and learn to how to sew your own clothes!

Since I last posted I have joined the fundraising team at Jacob's cub group and we've decided to run  few crafty events that I am very excited about!

I have known Emma Herian from Sew Recycled for years from having stalls next to her at craft fairs and I have long admired her gorgeous needle felted animals and other creations.

So I am very excited to announce that Emma has agreed to run her Christmas Needle Felting Workshop at the 44th Brighton Scout Hut on Friday 21st November 2014.

Tickets are a absolute bargain price of £25 for 3 hours of crafting fun making approx. 2-3 baubles. All materials and non-alcoholic refreshments are included. 
We are having a BYO on the evening if you would like to enjoy a glass a wine.

So come along, tell your friends and join us for an evening of crafting.
