The makers of homes 

Published on 27 January 2020 3 min read

Home is where the heart is, and if you’re anything like us, your heart is where the stash is! Often, your home is the center of your making world and having your handmade creations dotted around serve as a lovely reminder of that. 

From cosy corners where you settle in to stitch to whole rooms dedicated to storing your stash; from the train seat where you craft on your commute to the safe circle of crafters you create with – our making environments might look a little different, but they all feel like home to us.

We’re celebrating the makers of homes and the homes that make us with amazing makes.

Cosy up your craft corner

There’s nothing quite as homely as getting comfy in your favourite spot and getting stuck into a project. Give your creative space a little upgrade with a cool and colourful blanket to keep you cosy while you craft.

Brilliant blankets for cosy crafting

Make space for your stash

As the age old saying goes: ‘tidy house, tidy mind’. While the tidy house part might not always be possible, you can always have a tidy stash! Have a crafty clearout and we bet you’ll unearth yarns and materials you never knew you had – and you’ll clear space for new additions! 

What better way to organize your yarns and materials than in handmade baskets and storage containers? Not only will they look gorgeous in your home, they’ll also save you time rummaging through a tangle of yarn! 

Space saving makes for your stash

Save the planet

At LoveCrafts, we’re always thinking of ways we can be kinder to the planet, and that doesn't stop when we go home. We’re all about finding ways we can do away with the old and disposable, and bring in the new and reusable. 

From the bedroom to the kitchen, there are so many household items that could be used time and time again, and lots of them can be knitted, crocheted or crafted super fast with materials you’ve got sitting in your stash. 

Get creative and see how many disposable items that you're using daily, you could make instead. It’s the little changes that add up and make a real difference.  

Planet-friendly makes for the home

For eco-friendly makes, we love Paintbox’s super environmentally friendly yarns made from materials that would otherwise go to waste, but are instead gathered and spun into gorgeous yarns.
