After trying several different shapes and researching what the best fabrics are, I finally made my first masks…So far, the feedbacks are amazing and I am thrilled! 3 layers of UK Organic fabrics, comfortable, breathable, adjustable and washable, I believe they work very well. For more info or to order yours please message me privately (incl. your email address) and I will send you all the details and the fabrics available. 3 sizes : Child, Teen’, Adult. Costs £10 (50% profits donated to Costwold Counselling Charity, a wonderful organisation dealing with mental health for all ages, budgets, situations). Together let’s heal all generations present and to come.

OK! so after sewing 30 sets of scrubs- which is just over 100 items- and £100 raised for the NHS over 6 weeks, I am happy!
Thank you for all your help, may it have been in the form of cash, fabric or words of encouragement, I simply could not have done it without you all. I am truly humbled, grateful and so excited to know that I have friends out there ready to trust me and help me out!? (yes! it took a worldwide pandemic for my stubborn mind to believe it!
Together, not only have we helped a vital cause but also made the world a little bit safer and the people a little bit happier. And at the moment, that is huuuuge!
The Green Frog Club is back! And we have already started working on the famous, the wonderful…..bumbaaaag!! (I know! I NEVER thought I’d say that!) but it makes sense for the sake of the children’s back, to carry their money for “Friday Tuck-Shop” without losing it, their snacks so their boxes dont get spread around the playground! you know?! all these occasions where you are not with them to do it for them! 🤣🤸♀️ok so with paper with made the patterns on week 1 thinking of shapes, with gorgeous scraps we cut-out our pieces on week2. this week we shall start sewing…the zip!!
Eventually we will come to that! but even better! (-; Watch this page!
When you know that your handbag is annoying falling off your shoulder all the time but yet, so much more stylish than a backpack that you keep using it anyway?!… That’s me! And my birthday was on its way… So I decided to imagine my own bag, draw it on paper, played with fabrics I had at home (from old personal stash to local scrapstore leather via Vintage second hand sale…), added my seams allowance and started sewing… and Voila! I used it to go to France this Summer and to little trips to the zoo for example and it worked a treat!
From a big piece of “dot and cross paper” (dressmaker’s paper to make patterns) to these, I am very happy with the work achieved by the children this term, what a great year to end their first year with the GREEN FROG sewing club! The dolls became great pals along the process too! (-;
I’VE FINALLY TRIED IT!!! Best Beeswax in blocks from:https://www.livemoor.co.uk I had a few children for the day so I thought it would be the perfect time to have a go at my beeswax-wraps-trial-run!! We grated the beeswax like a big block of cheddar cheese directly on the pre-cut fabric in the tray. In the over for 2minutes and got it out and hanged it up with wooden little pegs to a piece of garden wire next to my oven… it dries super fast! We had fun making different shapes (bowls cover, sandwich wraps…) Created some little sets of 2 for favours to friends and family! (-; To clean dishes I put them back in oven to get it liquid again, wiped off most of the wax with paper cloths with coconut oil on them and same again with a scrap of kitchen cloth. For my hands I used oil and hand cream and wipe off excess with a cotton cloth. I will make a few changes next time but overall, great fun to make and such a worthy purpose!😉 Will have a go with the children at The GREEN FROG Club this week! Any mums interested?
Shirts into skirts…At the GREEN FROG Club we finished our Summer skirts. We used a pre-loved shirt, we learned 3 ways to take measurements on ourselves and on someone else, we used these measurements to mark on our shirt, cut it, sew the waistline and pass the elastic through with a safety pin. Et voila! 😉🤸♀️
