Handmade Monday #359


Welcome to another Handmade Monday, our weekly link up for all things handmade.

Instead of a pic of something I’ve been working on this week I’m going to share a tv show recommendation. I don’t know if it’s available to watch all around the world but I’ve spent the last week binge watching Junior Bake Off, that I’d recorded a few weeks ago. It’s a spin off from the Great British Bake Off and all the competitors are aged 9 - 12. It’s just the most wholesome tv show. The kids are great, so supportive of each other and so creative with their baking. The judges are perfect, with lots of advice and a great way of finding a positive somewhere even when a contestant has dished up what can only be called a hot mess. It’s the most fantastic mix of complete chaos and brilliant baking, I love it! If you do get chance to watch it I’d highly recommend. The perfect tonic.

Now let’s take a look at the features from last week’s Handmade Monday:

Stephanie from Crazy Little Love Birds made this beautiful heart decoration by upcycling an old chocolate box, you’d never guess would you?

I have totally fallen in love with this gorgeous altered book idea from Fresh Vintage by Lisa S. I’m not kidding when I say I want to stop everything and find an old damaged book to alter! I have in fact showed a small amount of self control and just added it to my to do list but I plan to get round to it sooner rather than later.

This doily is such a pretty way to use a small piece of lovely fabric from Keeping it Real.

Sara from Birdz of a Feather upcycled an old plaque and made this stunning geometric art. Isn’t it gorgeous?
