We head to Prestatyn in Wales to meet Claire who has been sewing for as long as she can remember.

How did you find CO+K and why did you join?

I stumbled across Cut Out And Keep when i was searching the internet for a pattern. I found a project for a Guitar bag on the website and then started to look around and loved the idea of people sharing their ideas and projects so i decided to sign up.

What projects are you currently working on?

I have a few crochet projects on the go at the moment - scarves and gloves as it is freezing here!

Ursula from Home Made by Carmona recreates the elegant home of Brooke Shields.

Brook Shields home is a beautiful mix of traditional elements while curating rich eclectic pieces. I love how moody her spaces are without feeling stuffy or antiquated. The style of her home can be achieved by employing dark colors on your walls, and mixing the new with the old. Don't forget to bring in a variety of materials from beautiful wood pieces, to marble, to lucite, and don't forget that bit of brass or gold accents! Use these projects as a place to start, as each of these elements can easily be customized to become the style found in Brooke Shields home.
