A Round Tuit 355

Happy Monday from Cairns!
Welcome to this week's linky party. A place where you can link up your posts and creations, and be inspired by others.

Tuits are very hard to come by, especially the round ones. For years people have been saying, "I'll do it as soon as I get a round tuit". Well now you can have one of your very own, and all those jobs that have needed doing will finally get done!
 
 
 
Here's my favourites from last week's party:
 
First of all, this cute 
Beginner Crochet Beach Bag from Do it your Freaking Self.



Next, a lovely crocheted 
Rabbit with hood from Frau Tschi Tschi.



For those featured, feel free to grab a 'featured on' button here.

A Round Tuit 354

Happy Monday from Cairns!

Many of you may know that this year I've gone back to work teaching English after a long break being a Mum and doing casual work.
I've had less time with my blog, although am still managing to keep it up, but just now most of my creativity is going into teaching.

This week I combined one of my runs with some research of English reading opportunities near the school, where I can take my students out and about for a change from the classroom.
Down by the wharf I found these poles with stories written on!  I'm sure I can make use of those!


Of course this fits with my motto of..

Use What You've Got

That I'm still managing to apply to all aspects of life!!

So how about you? What have you all been up to this week?
Let's get this party started and find out!

Handmade gifts




Did you know I have my own on-line Madeit store?
It's called "Save the Planet Designs by Jill"
 Quite a grand name don't you think?  Ok, so I'm not going to save the planet all by myself, but I do believe that we can all make a difference no matter how small.

 With the things I make and sew, I try to use upcycled fabrics and offcuts wherever possible. Using what I've got rather than buying new.
PLUS, as with my e-book, $1 from each sale in my shop will be donated to the WWF, to further help preserve our amazing planet!


I've got a selection of items in the store for sale now. Ranging from bags, of course to pencil and notebook folders and pouches to even a mug rug!



I've added my e-books to the store so there's another place you can buy them 
(other than right here on the blog).



I do hope you will visit my little store, and consider coming back if you have gifts to buy - there's nothing better and more unique than a hand-made present!

Thank you for your support!

22 Things to Sew in 5 Steps and 15 Minutes



I firmly believe that anyone can sew if they want to.
So I've tried with these particular sewing tutorials to keep things as simple and clear as possible and create a set of things that can be made in just 5 steps and 15 minutes.
Of course this is a guide - some things may take you a little longer, some may even be quicker, depending on what you have on hand and your confidence.
The main point is that they are simple and straightforward and great for beginner sewers just starting out!

I hope you find something you can try. Just click on the pictures below to go to the individual tutorials, and on each post you will find a link for a free downloadable PDF version of the tutorial.

Happy sewing!
