Packham a punch

I know it’s terribly middle class to idolise the Duchess of Cambridge’s sense of style (and that this post is several months overdue), but who doesn’t feel a twinge of envy when they see her in another fabulous Jenny Packham creation? You have to have a seriously good figure to pull of this colour and so many sequins, but for those feeling brave enough, I’ve tracked down two options from Packham’s diffusion line for Debenhams:

Sequinned dress, £185 from No. 1 Jenny Packham at Debenhams 

Sequinned dress, £150 from No. 1 Jenny Packham at Debenhams 

If those are still out of your price range, this nude lace shift dress is a wearable and affordable option, from Next: 

Apricot lace dress, £75 from Next

You will need: Fabric, thread, needle, scissors, plus embellishments such as cabochons, buttons, ribbon etc.
Step one:

Cut out a circle of fabric approximately twice as large as you would like your finished puff. Tie a knot in the end of your thread, stitch through the fabric a few times to secure, then sew running stitch around the edge of the circle.

Gently pull the thread to bring the edges of the circle in together to the centre.
Step three:

Look! My craft stall!

Well the craft market at the Midsummer Festival this weekend didn't go brilliantly for me thanks to the rain, but lots of people did take business cards so hopefully they will go home and order online from the cosiness of their houses. But look how pretty my stall looked! And all made on a budget of about 50p, proving that you don't need to spend a fortune on display things:

Of course, the highlight for me was lovely Thomas, the Clydesdale horse who had his shoes remade (they were huge!) and gave small children rides up and down Churchgate. He was adorable.

Review: Hand Lettering A to Z by Abbey Sy

I've been wanting to try my hand at "proper" hand lettering for a while - I often get complimented on my handwriting but when it comes to lettering for journalling or cards I'm never quite as happy with the outcome as I hope to be. So when the lovely folks at Quarto Publishing got in touch with their Autumn catalogue I was thrilled to see how many titles they had on the subject.
Hand Lettering A to Z by Abbey Sy is a gorgeous place to start. Abbey's instagram is absolutely lush (follow here here) and I particularly love her Bangkok photos as we've just returned from there, so I was super excited to be able to have a look at her book. The book takes you through a range of hand drawn fonts, plus has additional chapters on embellishments and a gorgeous gallery of inspiration. See how beautiful? So exciting. I was so excited, in fact, that I totally ignored her advice to get a sharp pencil and a proper table to work at. 'I can do this in front of Netflix can&#…
