Kirstie's Handmade Britain

Kirstie Allsopp is one of my favourite designers / presenters. I love her taste in homewear and have enjoyed all her TV shows. I wasn't surprised to learn she was related to Cath Kidston either. Anyway i am enjoying her new show and so far have pretty much fancied a go at all her crafts there has only been a few i have tried. Unfortunately most them involve alot of cost for materials but one i noticed that is pretty much free was newspaper models.

So i have set about having a go.....first attempt was a bird (like on the show) and i have since done a Giraffe. The Mini makers loved the look of it and also have had a go with Master maker's wonderful lizard and Little Lady's, well, shall we just say she hasn't got the hang of it yet and patience has been limited so up to now she has just made....a mess! :)

Anyway, here was my first attempt (doesn't look this lumpy in real life i might add!)

(think i need more practice!)
