Pay it forward

A few weeks ago I was reading Kim's blog & saw she was taking part in Pay It Forward - a lovely blogger project where you make crafty things for readers, who then make crafty things for their readers.

I was sent a mini q&a to fill in but had no idea what to expect, so it was a really lovely surprise to open my package last week!

I got...


.. a tote bag with a Harry Potter quote sown on it! This is so cool (and has inspired me to to learn to stitch - I want to make things like this!). I think I'm going to cut up the bag so I can frame this bit of fabric and hang it up in our new library. It'll look lovely.


AND.. a cupcake coaster & a felt macaroon badge! This was pretty much perfectly timed after my last post, and will look really sweet on one of my cardigan's in the summer. Thanks Kim!

Pay It Forward is such a lovely idea - I'll need to wait until we are settled in the new house before I get started on crafting things but watch this space, I'll let you know!

  1. I'm so glad you like everything! that's an awesome idea for framing the quote. Love it. Hope it didn't get too wrinkled in the post.

    I'm also planning on making myself a macaroon as I was so happy with how it turned out :)

  2. That is absolutely amazing, I adore the tote bag with the stitching! I wish I could hand sew like that, that would take me weeks and weeks (with lots of unpicking!) Love the Pay it Forward idea!
