Yummy Banana Muffins

Katies class at school are creating a cookbook with family recipes but unfortunatly most the proper family recipes i have are too complicated to cook with an 8 year old so we decided to make banana muffins which is a recipe i got online years ago and a great way to use up banana's.

Chef Katie ......Recipe:
200g (7oz) plain flour
1/2 teaspoon of baking powder
1 teaspoon bicarb of soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
150g (5oz) caster sugar
1 egg
75g ( 2 1/2 oz) butter melted
3 large banana's

Mash banana's then add melted butter,egg and caster sugar, stir well then sift in flour,bicarb of soda,baking powder and salt and stir till smooth.
Cook in a pre-heated oven at 180 degrees for 20 to 30 minutes.

Then EAT! yum yum

Fabric Flower Brooch

I've been having a lazy saturday so decided to have a play around with some fabric and make a little fabric flower brooch.

I've a bag full of fabric scraps so picked out these 2 fabrics which go together quiet well.

And this is the result a cute little flower brooch.

I had a mess around with an online photo editor aswell to make the photos a little more interesting and quiet like the effects!

Faith Hope & Charity Swapping ......

Back in may Lakoto from Faith Hope and Charity Shopping came up with the fab idea to hold a swap which would include something brought from a charity shop.

I was paired up with the lovely Miss Tea (Susan) from Tea~Diary and this morning recieved a package full of the following goodies which i am delighted with ..... Thankyou susan x

First package i opened contained a beautiful little thimble which im sure will get used many times as i do enjoy sewing.

And also a lovely handmade bracelet so so pretty and well done to susan as she has never made jewellery before but i think its fab and very well made.

Susan also sent me these lovely hearts which she decoupaged herself, reminds me i really must have a go as decoupage.

And last but not least these pretty candlestick holders which i love!

Thankyou again susan for the lovely gifts and thankyou to lakota for organising the swap :)

Raggy Heart Wreath

After seeing MissieLizzies Handmade thursday the other week when she made a heart wreath out of ribbon scraps made me think of a good use for the leftover school dress fabric that i had been creating with.

So this morning ive got to work cutting strips up with my pinking shears ........ i now have a lovely blister on my hand to prove ive been working hard!! lol

And then just tied them all onto a heart shape made from gardening wire.


Quick tip...... If your pinking shears get blunt just cut up some baking foil its sharpens them up a treat! I had to do this as below is a pic of my pinking shears that i nabbed off my mum and she got them late 70's early 80's lol yay for vintage pinking shears lol

If you would like to have a go at making one of these lovely then head over to Red Ted Art's Blog where theres a guest post on how to make a Rag Heart by Mary Poppins Home Sweet Home

Handmade Thursday ~ Upcycling

For Handmade Thursday linkup over at White Lily Greens blog this week im showing you what ive managed to make with 1 of my daughters outgrown school dresses that had a paint stain on so no good for the charity shop ....... i didn't want to just bin it as the gingham fabric is actually quiet nice lol

So first up take 1 old dress

Take it apart ..........

And use your imagination!!

Ive managed so far to make the following items, ok my sewing skills aint that good but this is all good practice using my machine and learning :)

First up a carrier bag holder ....

Second up is a pin/needle wallet thingy ma jig lol well its got felt fabric pages inside to hold all my needles etc

And then this its just a little sachet bag, am gonna make a couple more as i've still got fabric left and fill them with lavender from the garden to make the cupboards etc smell nice.

And lastly a little rosette flower that i'll attach to a hairfrip for DD will also make some more of these!

So give recycling a go you can make all sorts with scraps of fabric :)
