You might have heard about the Comic Relief Crafternoon?
You might know of a Crafternoon happening somewhere near you?
Comic Relief is getting crafty this year and has a pretty awesome magazine to prove it.
An inspirational labour of love, SilverPebble has seen her vision of handmade being turned in to raising money for Comic Relief brought to life and I hope she realises just how brilliant this is.
[Go and tell her!]
The Big Comic Relief Crafternoon magazine is brought to you by the same team behind Mollie Makes and has the same clean, modern and easy to follow format you would expect. The magazine contains over 50 craft projects, from the worlds of crochet, sewing, ceramics, needle felting, embroidery, cross stitch and fimo for you to try out, whether experienced in the craft or a beginner.
Makers and bloggers have come together to share designs to encourage you to make something and host a 'Crafternoon' of your own [tips inside the magazine]. If you've been meaning to pick up a new craft, you'll find something that inspires you here. Comic Relief airs on Friday, 13th March - so why not get some people together to have a go at one of the projects at lunchtime this week and raise a bit of money with tea and cake? Theres still time to whip up some of the projects and sell them too.
My favourite projects are Emma Mitchell's fimo necklaces, Jodie Carleton's felt guinea pigs [perfect for my Goddaughters] and Rachel Basinger's ceramic plate - I'll be giving them all a go:
