Come behind the scenes at Ric Rac and tour Jodie's colourful sewing room filled with adorable plushies.
My absolute favourite thing about this space is that I have it. I spent many years crafting on the end of the kitchen table, shoving things into tubs and under beds to keep spaces livable and now with this space I don't have to.
I don't have to share it with half a laundry or a study and it doesn't need to be turned back into a guest room at the drop of a hat.
I love that my craft work doesn't have to be interrupted or packed away.

Lisa from Dazed & Beautiful recreates the makeup of Adele for #MakeoverMonday and gives her a grungy makeover.
I love how classic Adele's style is. She is the perfect example of being effortlessly glamorous. I love her 1950's pin up style and that it is so simple but can go with any occasion from an album cover to a red carpet.
Cheryl recreates the cosy book filled home of TV detective Sherlock Holmes for DIYTheRoom.
I've been intrigued with Sherlock's Flat from the first episode; the wallpaper, the scattered papers, the various science experiments. Every time I look at a photo or watch an episode, I seem to spot something new that I hadn't noticed before. The flat seems to be quite dark which also makes it seem cozy, especially with all of the books spilling off the shelves and the tea cups strewn about. The flat is bursting with information about all kinds of things, which makes sense since Sherlock is a detective, after all. This flat seems like the perfect place to be on a rainy day with the lights low, a hot cup of tea, and reading a good book in one of the armchairs.
