My Etsy Pattern Picks of the Week! - Week 1, £2 and Under.
Supporting independent pattern designers is something really important to me, and if it wasn't for  Instagram or Etsy, finding independent patterns that are modern and funky would be especially complex. Whilst traditionalist patterns have their place, findi...

Biscornu Deux - How To & My Companion Cube
In my last post, I talked a bit about the biscornu projects I'd done over the last few years. They can look very complex to do, but are in fact very simple provided a few rules are followed.  I thought about doing my own how-to, but I certainly couldn't riv...
