My kids seem to destroy the plastic nappy changing mats that you buy from Boots or Mothercare or the supermarket & I get fed up of buying them new ones, so the challenge was there to make something difficult for them to destroy. When you have 2 in nappies it gets a lot of use as well.
Let's see how this goes...
My eldest came with me to choose the fabric, so after I'd finished it I couldn't get him off it, he wanted to lay on it all afternoon.

My husband wanted a cafetiere cosy to keep his morning coffee warm a little longer, so my challenge was set!
(Excuse some of the stitching it was a challenge & it's not exactly neat for the first attempt!)

We're trying to reduce our sugar intake slightly so thought I'd try and make some savoury things to replace all the biscuits & chocolate we seem to eat. These are delicious and the raisins adds a little natural sweetness.
Ingredients:250g plain flour
3 1/2 tsps baking powder
1 tsp salt
1 tsp paprika
120g grated cheese
- Preheat oven to 220C.
- Place flour, baking powder, salt and paprika in a bowl & mix together.
- Cut the butter into small pieces and using your finger tips rub the flour into the butter.
- Beat the egg and add the milk mixing together well.
- Add the milk-egg mix to the dry ingredients and mix thoroughly.
- Add the grated cheese and raisins and mix well.
- Place into cupcake cases or a muffin tin.
- Bake in the oven for 20-25 mins.
Serve with soup or a stew.
Cut in half and spread some soft cheese on them.
