Re: Registering and Monitoring home educated children propos

Just a quick note back to the Registration policy.

Now, I understand that this...

Re: beaded pearl bracelet

Its a really easy technique and can be used to make loads of other items. I know this style is quite dated but is in trend at the moment so its a great gift idea. I bought enough supplies to make 12 kits and that worked out at £2.50 each so its cost effeective too.

Re: Fabric for baby sling

I have made a moby from stretch jersey. I paid 2.49 per meter from the range. The only drawback was the only pattern they had was leopard print... I have finally had to stop using and swap for a mei tei.
