Why I love painting our garden wildlife now more than ever.

Lockdown was hard for so many.  But it did make us think differently about the nature we have around us.   Millions of us took to our gardens, and in turn, we saw the wildlife in our gardens that were often overlooked due to our busy lifestyles.

Happy New Year !🍾🎉🎊🥳 


Hi everyone great to meet you and thanks for taking the time to find out a little bit more about me and Michaela Makes.  
 I have crafted since I was around 12. I started with knitting (which I taught myself from a paperback book I bought from book club in school ). I didn’t tell my friends as it was something that 12 year old didn’t really do,  that was until I made an Aran tank top (it was the early 80s ) my best friend seen it and asked me to make her one.  I then started working in John Lewis (GH Lee) as a knitting machine demonstrator on the haberdashery dept and my love of craft expanded.  I love cross stitch , tapestry, paper craft and felting but my true passion is crochet.  I decided to go self employed at the end of 2019 and have never regretted it.  I teach crochet classes every week from my ‘she shed’ in my garden so not far to go to work(usually accompanied by my 2 border terriers Isa and Winston 🐾) @michaelamakes21 enables me to make various items of crochet from baby clothes, accessories and home decor which I sell @britishcrafthouse and also take commissions.  I am looking forward to seeing what 2022 will bring and feeling very optimistic.  Working on hand crocheted scarves and cowls so why not follow me on Instagram and be the first to see my proto types.  I always welcome feedback.  So grab a coffee and have a browse @britishcrafthouse and enjoy looking at all the wonderful products that my fellow artisans make.

Grey Felt Koala Bear Hair Bow and Barrette Clip Set on Baby Pink

Well tomorrow is a new year and that means new things being made.

I love the endless possibilities with the new little gift sets I have started to make, matching hair bows and clips too.

I am working on so many new ideas but thought I would start with these sets for little girls and then a few clip ideas for your little boys with long hair, after all they also need something to keep their hair out of their eyes. 

I am so looking forward to showing you all my new items and if you think of an idea, well just get in touch and I will try to make it for you too.
