Handmade Gifts : DK Crafts

Wow! I'm in a book. In Handmade Gifts by DK I show you how to make my popular tote bags, including the pencil design above. This was the first bag print I listed in my online shop and I'm happy to share a technique in printing it. (One that you can do at home without any expensive equipment!)
 In the back of the book you'll see my other stencil shapes for printing. Once you've copied and cut out the designs you canhave fun playing about with repeat patterns or changing scale of the shapes.

Take a closer look Here or even buy from a local retailer!? It's full of lots of lovely crafts and tips. I'm going to make the macaroons!


  1. Hi Nicola, I've just discovered your blog. Congratulations on the book. Your bag is lovely. I'm also in the book (the ipad cover on page 106). Happy crafting! Lova

    1. Hi Lova, Thank you! Lovely to hear from another contributor to the book. Did everyone you know get a signed copy for Christmas? ;) Congratulations to you too and your lovely designs :)
