Hello all,

I'm feeling very adventurous with arts and crafts at the moment but I'm running out of fun ideas!
I've done sewing, made place mats and coasters out of lollipop sticks, trying to find some items to upcycle etc

Does anyone have any fun arts and craft projects on the go?
What do you enjoy most about arts and crafts?

    That's all very creative! I'm a bit scared to do arts and crafts because I'm a perfectionist.

    I'm trying to make my own clothes for the summer. What did you sew?

    Heya! I was sewing random patterns into cloth and realised I have no skill haha. 
    Make your own clothes sounds fun! How do you go about that?

    Haha yeah I'm a bit nervous to use the sewing machine, only sew by hand now (fixingh holes etc)

    I think I try to recreate a skirt I have, it's basically a piece of fabric with 2 buttons on it so it shouldn't be too difficult I hope xd

    Did you find a new project to do?

    Hi @GreenTea

    Great thread! I'm not very creative but I like upcycling things so I've been trying to revamp old clothes or find a new purpose (eg as a cleaning cloth). I started quite basic so like adding elastic bands to skirts that are too big or old clean shoe laces in to the waist band of leggings that have stretched out. 

    I want to start making some scrunchies with bands and old shirts but need to figure out the sewing machine =)
