Apologies for being away from the blog for a little while. As I mentioned previously, I’ve been in London, which is where I still am. Things have been happening lately and I got some more work from Prima after they extended my internship, so I’m still here for the time being. I’ve actually been working on their craft supplement, Prima Makes magazine, the next of which is out in February. But if you want to know what I was doing in the summer, and are in the mood for Christmassy crafts (please don’t say it’s too early – I’ve been thinking about Christmas since August!), then pop into WH Smiths and pick up a copy of the above, Prima Christmas Makes, only £3.99. Can you tell I love my job?
Crafting was a big part of this year’s Strummer of Love festival and my friends and I certainly took advantage of this. After all, what is more exciting to a craft enthusiast like me than the appeal of a festival which incorporated it into the schedule?
Here’s what I made:
Floral crown headbands
These floral crown headbands were the perfect addition to our festival outfits and what was great about making them was that was they were completely unique and personal to us. Here’s how we made them:
Friendship bracelets are synonymous with schooldays (I used to make loads of them to wear myself and to hand out to friends) so making them at Strummer of Love felt like a nice nod to my childhood.
Native american headbands
On the final day, we were able to make these wonderful headbands to proudly wear around the site, which was a nice way to finish off our weekend.
