A few weeks ago I got an email that made my day from Davina Drummond. I've been following Davina on instagram for a while (you know - to the point where I feel like I kind of know her already... confirming my suspicions that instagram is actually turning me into a stalker).
She asked me if I'd like to contribute to a craft stall that she is curating as part of the Village Fair at the Southbank Centre which is happening this weekend (24th and 25th August).
Of course I said yes, even though I actually hardly ever do tutorials as such here on the blog and I'm actually going to be away this weekend and I was in the midst of school summer holidays chaos with not a moment to myself. But you know, I'm glad I did because as is often the case with me a bit of a deadline kicks me into actually doing something where I could very easily have just made a cup of tea and purused the wonders of other peoples blogs instead.
I've made a very simple tutorial to make a book - which can be found here.
And below is the rest of the Village Fair Virtual Stall - with all of the tutorials that people have made - please have a look and maybe enjoy making something new this weekend? Or if you're in London go along and take a look at what is going on (and please instagram it so I don't feel like I'm totally missing out).

Enjoy the bank holiday weekend - I love the August bank holiday; but it always feels a little bitter sweet as it marks the beginning of the end of summer. It's been a good one; I'll be sad when it's over.
