    I’ll start if off. I make greetings cards using a variety of techniques with stuff from craft suppliers, craft magazines and stuff I save like ribbons and gift wrap. That’s enough about me… tell us about your handmade goodies.

    Yay!Well, I can knit, but only scarves at the moment, and am working on a scarf that is rather epic in width… may not have enough wool for it. Plus, I’m not currently in a place that requires massively wide scarves.Now that my Master’s programme is over, I’m getting back into baking. My favourite thing to bake is a simple tea or coffee cake from a bundt pan. No icing, no frills. But often I pour some booze on the cake. ๐Ÿ˜€ I haven’t tried making pie yet, because I’m pretty impatient, but it’s something I’d like to work on to get my baking skills nudged up a bit.That’s all I’ve got up my crafty sleeve so far.

    Mmm…. cake! What’s a bundt pan @quitepeculiar? Love pies too but haven’t made pastry in years.

    A bundt cake pan (which may be called something different in the British Isles) is what I used to make this recently: http://theardentexile.tumblr.com/post/1713368547/boozy-late-night-baking-cardamom-rum-cake

    I make little collage badges and embroider in front of tv. I am slowly but surely turning into my mother.

    I make cakes! We have a little cake-making operation called \Formica Palace” and make them to order – no flavour or decoration is too wild the more unusual the better!I also make bags out of old pairs of jeans……have had the first one I made for ten years now and it still copes with all the ridiculous paraphernalia that I cart around! If you want one just chuck me your jeans and whatever you’d like to decorate it with and I’ll turn it around in a couple of days. Great for christmas and means you never have to part with your old faithfuls!L. x”

    I make bunting and flags, and the occasional cushion cover. Bunting and flags for hire / sale / commission / blag if you’re a community group with no money. I like to head to Ridley Road for fabric, and Our Patterned Hand on Broadway Market for the finest selection of buttons, and advice.

    Been making Christmas cards for my family to give to their friends. I would like to add a photo but I don’t know how ๐Ÿ™

    5 out of 6 people said this was a pretty or nice card. It’s always good to get compliments. http://www.facebook.com/?ref=home#!/photo.php?fbid=473495219159&set=a.78296564159.79058.560454159

    Anyone know anyone who does pottery? It’s one of the things I did at school and never since. Would love to know if there any clay crafters in the borough.I’ve recently started drawing again more out of need for images I want to make cards with… which gives me an idea for a new topic for discussion. Meanwhile here is one of my latest works…
