Covet Tuesday: Designist

I've been coveting many items on the designist. site for ages now so their shop was on my list of must-sees on our recent Dublin trip. These are just some of my favourite items but there is loads more to see here. I bought a lovely Cake Cafe tea towel during our trip as I was nostalgic for the years we lived in Dublin and places like this were on our doorstep!

I'm definitely in lust with this new version of the Adria Action Caravan - so many possibilities for making it your own - and perfect for trundling around for small scale adventures!

Making: Easy Beach-Proof Sunglass Pouch

We're going on a sun holiday for a change this summer so I decided I needed a beach-proof Sunglass Pouch.* I had this spotty vinyl from another project so strengthened it with some iron-on interfacing which made sewing much easier - one popper and cute button later and I had a really easy and quick to make pouch! *made with a template I found on Google Images
