Ooh, look at us socialising and sharing!
Hi, I’m Natasha.
Ooh, look at me welcoming you to my creative blog, where I will introduce you to all the fun, creative and crazy things I get up to.
I am a wife and a mother to my 3 children and 2 dogs, so you can imagine how chaotic it can get in our house.
“Ooh, look at me!” is an ironic name because I actually don’t like drawing attention to myself or my family, yet I really like inspiring others to be creative because I know how fulfilling it can be. The name also comes from something silly we used to say years ago and it kind of just stuck with me.
Check out our About Us page for more information about us and what we do.
I hope this brings you creative joy

Campervan Needle Case
I wanted something to store our sewing needles in so they were safe and easily accessible. I had seen the needlepoint section in “Stitch by Stitch” by Jane Bull and was inspired to create something using the techniques shown. I am a massive fan of campervan related products because it reminds me of our beach holidays and I thought I would try to embroider one. I used some plastic aida that I had in my craft stash and various yarns. Along with this I used a fabric quart with campervans on, for the inside and ties.
I drew a campervan design on some square paper to give me something to follow. I also decided that I wanted it to be a heart shape. I managed to complete the whole thing within a few hours. I still use it now. It is very hard wearing and solid enough for the needles not to poke through.
This is definitely one of my sewing favourites.
I hope this brings you creative joy and inspires you to start your own thread-tastic journey.
Please share and connect with us on social media. I would love to hear from you and see your creations.
Let’s get creative!
