Hi, I’m Claire and this is my little sewing, crafting and making blog. It’s called My Monday Makes because Monday was my day off when the kids were younger – when I got to play with my sewing machine and make lovely things, usually for my two children (but occasionally for me)!

I love sewing, crafting and making beautiful things.  My mission is to help anyone who wants to try crafting, art and sewing.  Don’t be scared of failing; because whatever you make is an achievement and its the process of making that counts.  Making anything is good for the soul, as you have to be present to focus on what you’re making and this helps you to relax and unwind.

I hope you like it!
