Handmade Challenge - June Update

Well here we are. We are halfway through the year, and with much determination, I have (just) made half of the items off my Handmade Challenge List.

The latest item to be marked off is the little tea bags. They looked simple and innocent, however I found them to be for more complicated.

Fancy a cup of tea?

I have been working late into the night, and this was the only photo I managed. I did make six tea bags in total, not just the one! However the following morning, when I had hoped to take proper photos, the kids decided they just couldn't wait to make multiple cups of tea. Needless to say they don't quite look like they once did, however they have been a HUGE hit with the kids, and therefore worth every swear word.

Six Items Down

The items that now remain all seem to be quite big ones, and sewing, so much sewing. I knew I would do that.

Six To Go


I feel I am in desperate need of a cheer squad. How do you motivate yourself when everything seems impossible?


  1. 👏👏👏👏👏👏👏
    Well done you. I lost my crafting mojo for a couple of months but it's back now and I'm moving the right direction now 😀.

    1. Well done on finding your Mojo Melanie! So glad to hear it's back :)
