My Craft Kit (Danni)
Hello crafters, apologies for the long delay – I recently moved flats and I`ve been a busy bee unpacking, arranging, throwing junk away, amassing huge charity shop bags and acquiring new bits and bobs. I`ve also been having a lot of fun getting my crafting station ready. Whilst I`m still awaiting my desk (a lovely 1940s oak thing with an extra foldout ledge, very, very excited!) I thought I would take some piccies of my favourite bits as part of Charlie`s #MyCraftKit fun. If you`re on twitter why not share yours, I really love to see people`s craft treasures/bare essentials.
This is my bead box which I literally cannot live without. I keep all my beads in little bags and then keep them in bigger bags based on colour (that might seem a bit anal, but it really helps when coming up with ideas)
This is my fabric bag, some of which I`ve bought before I even know what I`m going to do with it (the piece on the top is a case in point, it was just too beautiful to resist).
Here are my knitting needles, thread box and button tins. I am a sucker for storage – I`ll re-use, scavenge from friends and buy from charity shops. The thread box came from Gumtree with threads and a mushroom darner, bargainous.
I just love craft books, they are usually so beautifully designed with so much attention to detail. Great layout, nice paper, gorgeous photos or illustrations – they are just so inspiring to have a flick through.
Another Gumtree bargain, this lovely old hand crank machine got me back into sewing.
So that is some of my craft essentials (like all good crafters I have a stupid amount of supplies, more to follow I`m sure!)
