Halloween is just around the corner and we are back in lockdown… However rather than sticking your head in the sand and being sad about the fact that Halloween this year won’t look like it did all the years before, just make the best of it – making…

Chunky Rainbow Bonnet

For some reason this year marks the year of the rainbow. Not just because of lockdown, but because I have started to introduce a little bit more colour into my designs. I still won’t go completely over the top, so don’t panic 😂, but I might start pushing…
