The Making Home Weekly Link Up #9

Welcome to the #MakingHome weekly link up!

Be inspired by posts all about home; moving house, decorating, DIY, family activities, recipes, gardening and more. It’s all here under one roof at Mrs Crafty B’s.

I have been trying to find some time and motivation to get our front room painted this week but having just started a new part time job I am finding it hard to say the least! I am hoping that a boost in finances will help us along the way with our #MakingHome journey; I have a long wish list!

Alongside trying to get myself in an organised state the last few days, I have been thinking about Christmas! I know I know its October but this year I would like to make a few personalised gifts, so I have been experimenting. I am talking hot chocolate stirrers and chilli chutney. With that in light, I thought this week I would share this sewing tutorial. This carry case for the Little Bs' colouring books and crayons is really handy in keeping my under stairs cupboard tidy and is easy to grab for long car journeys and weekends away. I think it would also make great Christmas present for any #MiniMakers out there. What do you think?

Last week's #MakingHome was jam packed full of inspiration. If you missed it take a look and catch up on all of the fab posts. I am talking great recipes (like this one from Sneaky Veg), the reclaiming of furniture, Ikea hacks, and room makeovers galore (I LOVE the London wallpaper in this stylish attic room from The Brunette Says).

Don't forget to join in this week and link up your own posts! The linky is now open until late Wednesday.

  1. That looks an ideal place to store pens and paper. I'm also thinking about christmas - well I'm trying not to but it just seems to be the topic this week. Have a great weekend and thanks for hosting #makinghome

    1. It is really handy! I'm thinking smaller versions to fit in handbags for coffee shop visits ;-) I've just been back in the craft lab trying another handmade gift! We may as well face it and embrace it; Christmas is coming X
