Last video and the end of the tale for my trip back in November, when Save the Children sent me and three of my fellow Crafty Avengers to Indonesia. It was all part of the #imapiece Craftivist Jigsaw Project (which you can still join in!).

My mission was to report back to you good crafty folks on the work they are doing to fight hunger, and how our voices calling for aid here can make a big difference over there.

Here is the final part of my video diary of the trip. How to be a Handmade Hero: Part Six – cooking, kittens, fair trade fun and escape to Jakarta. Featuring Come Dine with Me revamped for Indonesia, a small ginger kitten, how buying fair trade can save the world, a mad dash into Jakarta for lovely, lovely fabric, shells wearing googly eyes, and a final goodbye.

There’s a playlist of the whole How to Be a Handmade Hero series here, so be a love and watch them and join in to make your jigsaw piece. It’s up to us to raise our crafty voices and get the people at the top to end world hunger. I’m most certainly a piece of the solution. The deadline is February 21st. Join us!
