A few weeks ago, I headed down to Glasgow to attend a 'Crafternoon' which was being held in conjunction with Hillarys Blinds, The Crafty Hen and Joes Bloggers. Aside from tea and cake which was kindly provided by 'The Butterfly and the Pig' where the event was being held (a gorgeous tearoom in the centre of Glasgow), we were also treated to a fun afternoon of crafting.

At the event, we made 2 crafts: a covered notebook and a 3D bird using fabrics from the new collection at Hillarys blinds. I must say that the new collection fabrics are all gorgeous with something that will suit every interior.

The 1st craft we made was a notebook. Now as someone who has a bit of obsession with notebooks, I was really looking forward to this one, however difficult it would be. In fact, it wasn't as difficult as anticipated: 4 simple stitches held the cover in place.

The 2nd craft was a 3D bird which was slightly more difficult to make and included a little more  sewing. However, once you started stitching, you could see the bird beginning to take shape (although my final one resembled a seal).

After a couple of hours crafting, these were the finished results:

Thank you to Joes Bloggers, The Crafty Hen, Hillarys Blinds and also The Butterfly and the Pig for a fabulous event!
