Hello everyone. It’s been along time since my last post but I am back again with plenty of great ideas to share.
One of my viewers liked one of my K-Mart crafts and then told me that she went to K-Mart to get the supples and found that they no longer stocked what she needed. I can imagine the disappointment so I am very sorry!
I went to K-Mart as soon as I could to check it out and found that a lot has changed in their craft department. They seem to have swapped suppliers so some of their stock is the same just labelled differently. However a lot of things they have stopped stocking altogether. Such a shame but I suppose this happens with big business!
I got over my disappointment pretty quickly though and took up the challenge to come up with some new ideas! So my K-Mart posts will be similar but different to the previous posts but you can be assured that all you need you can find easily and cheaply at K-Mart.
I am sure that this won’t be the end of more changes so if you find that you can’t buy something where I said you can please let me know!
So here is my first simple craft made with craft supplies from K-Mart. It is similar to a previous post with a few changes. Hope you like it.
These are the supplies you will need
You will also need a pair of scissors and a glue gun which you can also purchase in the craft department.
How to make them:

Hey everyone! This is a really simple machine sewing project for beginners sewers but also a great, quick and easy project for the more experienced sewers out there. Makes a great ‘new baby’ gift!
They don’t need much fabric so I have used up a lot of my quilting scraps for this project. The backing is made of toweling so it makes them nice and soft and absorbent. You can purchase this on the roll at Spotlight or any fabric store, however I just purchased some cheap towels from the supermarket or department stores. If you use a darker colour they wont show up stains as easy.
You will need a piece of cotton fabric and toweling ~25cm x 35cm and 2 large press studs to complete this project. And of course you need the pattern – please click here to download it for free.
Here are the instructions on how to make this quick and easy bib…. Continue reading “How to Make a Simple Baby Bib”
Since publishing this post K-Mart have changed stockists and some of these items are no longer available in their stores. Sorry for the inconvenience but hope the ideas will still inspire you. Thanks, Chrissy

This is one of the best crafts you can do with a group of girls young and old. I have taught this one many times and it is always successful. You make each petal separately with very easy origami folding. I think I have made about a thousand of these over the years and there are plenty around my house! I don’t think I will ever get tired of making them. I will definitely be posting more example in the future… Continue reading “Amazing Origami Paper Flowers”
