In case any other crafters / makers come across this blog, I wanted to draw your attention to this - it's nothing to do with me at all but a great chance to get your ideas published. If I were further along in my own experimentation I'd give it a go but am not in a making stuff for kids place right now... good luck! (And if the Making Stuff book is anything to go by the kids version should be a right old treat, can't wait!)
Making Stuff For Kids: Children's craft book seeks crafter/maker contributors
Black Dog Publishing is a small book publishers specialising in high-end illustrated books. Following on from the success of our alternative craft book, Making Stuff, we are currently working on the follow up, Making Stuff for Kids.
This book will feature beautiful, funky, wacky and useful ideas for things to make for and with kids.
We need your brilliant and exciting ideas. Mobiles, dolls clothes, cross-stitch and any type of clothing, toys or accessories for little ones will be considered! Contributions are unpaid, but you will be credited in the book with a 100 word biog, featuring any websites or contact details you would like to promote.
Please send a brief description of your idea with any images you may have to hand to: mailto:email@example.com
