The Happy Barnet Craft Challenge!
I do love a good crafting project but due to health issues I hadn't been crafting much or spending as much time with my crafty friends (that's the worst bit, obviously!) so I have decided to try and bring a bit of crafty fun back in to my life and hopefully to encourage fellow crafters like you to try something new. Which brings me to.....*drumroll please*...... The Happy Barnet Craft Challenge!
Craft Challenges 2018:
Take a look at the list of challenges below, grouped into two sets, one just for fun and the other to try something new. Pick as many or as few challenges as you feel comfortable completing.
You can share your project updates and get more ideas in the happy barnet facebook group and use/follow the hashtag #happybarnetcraftchallenge on instagram, and twitter. Looking forward to seeing which challenges you choose and of course your finished crafts!
Happy Crafting, folks!
