How to be a Handmade Hero: Part 1 – A girl, a mouse, a jigsaw piece and a whole lot of optimism

Posted by on 9 Nov, 2012 in Blog, Craftivist Jigsaw Project, Indonesia, Mice, Travel, Video | 1 comment

Today I put on my Handmade Superhero cape and head off to Indonesia with Save the Children for the Craftivist Jigsaw Project. I’m taking a knitted mouse, a jigsaw piece and a whole load of optimism. My mission is to report back to the craft world and hopefully convince you that us crafty types can make a difference.

Not sure what I’m on about? Grab yourself a cup of tea and cast your eyeballs over a quick video where I hope to talk you into being a piece of possibly the most ambitious craft project to spring from the tips of tiny needles. Here’s How to be a Handmade Hero: Part 1.
