The Pirate Craft Book Review & Giveaway

I have a fantastic book to review thanks to GMC distribution and the authors from Little Button Diaries; The Pirate Craft Book.

Win a copy of The Pirate Craft Book

I am very excited to try out all 15 pirate themed projects that are shown in great detail in this book!   Each challenge has a description of the project, a list of items that you will need and step by step instructions complete with pictures.   Authors Laura Minter & Tia Williams really has thought of everything to help you and your children achieve the desired pirate effect.

How to make a Pirate Telescope

Now, there is an 'easy-sew' project and a treasure chest cake - both tasks are my nemesis in the crafting world, but with my son's help I'm sure the cake .... no I'm not sure at all but it's worth a try, be sure to follow my Instagram just in case the cake appears on there....

All the projects can be made either from readily available items or from easy to source materials - this is very much in keeping with our lifestyle and as such Max and I were able to make the First Mate's Telescope!
