Perfect scents

I wanted a room diffuser but found they were quite expensive. I made my own by cleaning out an old herb jar, adding bamboo skewers to it and filling it with white vinegar to neautralise odours. Sometimes I change the fluid to fragrant oils from my favourite perfume. It was simple to do and now my room always smells great.

Take it from the top

My sister Meg received a T-shirt from her friend in Australia, but it wasn't the type of thing she'd wear. I cut up the material and created a bag, jam jar tops and a pincushion out of it. Now Meg has useful things that will always make her think of her lovely friend in Australia.

Hoppy ever after

My baby girl Frankie, five months, had grown out of her jingly rabbit socks, but I didn't want to part with them. I filled them with toy stuffing, stitched up the ends and sewed a loop onto them. Now we can attach Frankie's rabbit to her play mat or car seat and she loves seeing her favourite old friends jingling away.
