Come behind the scenes at Pysselbolaget and tour Karin & Freja's cosy craft closet in Stockholm.
Beside the fact that I can keep all my craft supplies in one place, I also get to display some of our favourite crafts. We make lots of things for the blog and I also make tutorials for companies who like to fill their websites with creative content.
Cydney recreates the colorful nerdy style of Kimmy from The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt.
After binge watching The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt one weekend, I have a soft spot for Kimmy’s indomitable optimism and joyous attitude! I love that her character resembles a ray of sunshine, with bright colors and playful accessories- she has inspired me welcome more bold colors in my wardrobe this spring.

How did you find CO+K and why did you join?
One of my friends told me about the website, and when I went to look on it I saw so many great art projects that I just had to sign up! It's a great source for so many different art projects.
What projects are you currently working on?
Currently, not so much. I still want to entire fill my vase with Lucky Stars but that's way too much work. And I'm always drawing something, I'm working on a drawing of a friend at this moment. And I'm trying to get some new ideas for a statement necklace! And I want to learn how to crochet and make a blanket. And... And... And... I just want too much hahaha.Read the rest of the interview »

Fun with Stitching
We chat to Fiona, give you a chance to win the book and learn how-to stitch an elephant.
Hi everyone. I'm a sewing and knitting writer, living just outside London in the UK. I'm largely self taught and studied politics at university, so nothing at all arty. But my heart has always been in making things. When I was 11, I won my school sewing cup for a pair of slightly dodgy looking blue seersucker pyjamas. And although I've written a lot of knitting books recently, sewing is my first love. I used to teach it and am still part of a local sewing group.
Mistress Nora of Madness recreates the colourful hippyish style of a boho party from the 60's.
The sixties was all about sharing and caring. Peace not War. Breaking out of the restrictive clothes and concepts of the 50's. No more doing what is expected of you. It was a time of thinking for yourself and standing up for what you thought was correct. Loving everyone=no matter. Loving Mother Earth and her resources.
I’m a Portuguese illustrator, currently living in Lisbon with my boyfriend and my cat. I like to draw cat ladies wearing colorful outfits and some of my inspiring fictional characters of literature/ cinema. Apart for being an illustrator I’m also a lawyer.
