      I don't consider myself to be crafty, but I am teaching myself how to sew. I would love to learn how to make clothes, for my children and for myself....I would also love to learn how to make anything out of felt.

      I enjoy making cards & sewing, I would LOVE to make something that is perfect, my cards are always slight5ly wonky & my hems ar slightly askew, I comfort myself with the fact that this is what makes them individual & "home made" but for once I would like to make something that's perfect!

      The thing I would like to make most in the world: sewn toys and dolls for children to give to charities. I need to expand my sewing skills and this looks like it has sewing kits/books in it. I also knit, crochet, loom, ect. I belong to an online group that give to charities. This would be fantastic to help me continue to make things to give away :)

      Not sure I'm sneaking in on time but I would like to be able to make curtains and bags - curtains because we need new ones that highlight the window design and provide warmth in winter and bags cause you can never have too many bags :D

      I would love to make a Special Christmas Decoration for the Queens Christmas tree which is in Buckingham Palace and every year handmade Ornaments are placed there for her to view. As I am from Australia - it would be such a special treat to see her admiring something that I had made.
