Handmade Monday #29

It's Handmade Monday time!
Welcome to another Handmade Monday, the place to share your makes, bakes and other handmade craft ideas or just find some new inspiration.

How has your week been? I've been enjoying participating in a colourful Instagram challenge for June. It's organised by Adventures and Tea Parties and is #ColourMyEveryDay. The daily prompts have been pretty vague which always makes this kind of thing easier. I've not done a daily challenge like this for ages and to be honest I never normally manage everyday but as they are supposed to be for fun I don't beat myself up about it!

Now here are the features from last weeks linky:
Vicky Myers made this beautiful chevron cushion cover from old jeans. If you read her step by step instructions it is actually much simple to put together than it looks. 

I LOVE Rhubarb and so I couldn't resist these lovely looking rhubarb crumble muffins from Of Faeries & Fauna

And a final bonus honourable mention that goes to the super talented daughter of Ginny from Ginx Crafts who made her mum a most fabulous toy Alpaca. Isn't he just fabulous? She did cut up her dressing gown to make him, but how could you be cross about that?!

Congratulations, here is a "Yay! I was featured" button for your blog.

We are all about sharing and caring here at Handmade Monday so if you do link up please take some time to visit some other links and share a few on the social media of your choice. If you are not a social media fan then comments are lovely too (I know the world of tweets, likes, shares and hashtags is not for everyone!)
We have a Handmade Monday Facebook Group where we share tips and ideas. If you like to link up here regularly you are welcome to join us, just send a request. Every entry to Handmade Monday gets pinned onto our Handmade Monday pinterest board too.

The rules for Handmade Monday are simple:
  • Did you make it? Yes - hooray, we'd love to see it!
  • Add the link to a specific blog post, not your main site URL.
  • Link up to 3 posts each week.
  • Mingle - visit some of the other links - comment - sharelet's support one another and grow our craft community.
If you're not sure on anything, more information can be found here.
