Pidge jumper pattern

The hardest part of making this jumper was putting together the pattern so to save you the time here is the pattern i made.

All pattern pieces are under the cut, they’re all a4 sized so you can print them out from a normal printer.

Hope this helps some people with this costume, if you have any questions just ask me! 

EDIT - i now have a pidge jumper tag where i’ve already answered some questions about this jumper but still feel free to ask me anything

After coming back from Iceland I have a few new items in my shop!

tiny sea witch altar - available on ETSY

This kit is both for those who are land-locked and who live by the sea. It was put together from materials I’ve gathered during my travels. When used for meditation it will help you connect with the sea and draw from its power.

Miniature Greek Gold Column Capital,  4th-3rd Century BC

In the shape of a Corinthian capital, the base with a ring of beads and two rows of acanthus leaves, a volute support at each of the four corners of the abacus with granulation and a five-petal flower at each side, the four sides of the abacus decorated with a central flower, 1.5cm high

This capital is closely related to an example in the British Museum, which is said to be from Taranto, South Italy. The British Museum capital is the finial of a gold sceptre, with the main body made of gold net and surmounted by a glass fruit, possibly a quince, nestled among gold acanthus leaves. It is believed to have been part of the funerary offering for a Tarantine priestess.

Sand Witch Banishing Spell

You will need:

  • sand (I used beach sand but any kind should work)
  • a shallow container wide enough to fit your hand in
  • a candle
  • writing implement (i used the unlit tip of an incense stick but you can use a crystal point, your finger, a pen, whatever you like
  • a list of things you want to banish

Light your candle. Pour the sand into the container until it covers the bottom about 1.5cm deep, and shake the container gently to flatten the sand. Write what you want to banish in the sand, focusing on each word. When you finish, visualise the words glowing in the sand as you hold your hands above the candle flame, feeling the warmth on your palms seep through your skin and course through your body as raw energy. With this energy you are going to erase the words in the sand, simultaneously banishing whatever it is from your life. Rub your warmed hands in the sand until no trace of writing remains. Dispose of the sand by scattering it to the air as you visualise the last remnants of the banished subject vanishing into nothing.

Making Vegan Focaccia the Witchy Way

So, today my boo and I decided to make some bread, specifically focaccia. It was his first time making it and I’d only seen my momma do it before so it could have gone really badly, however I think it was a pretty good success.

Firstly we found a basic recipe on the interwebs and worked out what ingredients we needed:

  • 300ml/½ pint tepid water
  • 1½ tsp dried yeast or 2 heaped tsp fresh yeast
  • 500g/1lb 2oz ‘00’ flour or strong white bread flour, plus extra for dusting
  • 1½ tsp salt
  • 3 tbsp olive oil, plus extra for greasing
  • 150 ml extra virgin olive oil for topping
  • medium coarse sea salt
  • 2 sprigs rosemary, torn into small pieces

Along with this we also decided to add three cloves of garlic because garlic is good. Plus one of my flat mates may be a vampire and I don’t want him eating my food.

SO! After a wee trip to our local ASDA we finally had everything (we needed flour and yeast because I was so unprepared.) We also maybe accidentally bought cookies. The first step was to prep the yeast.

1. Pour a little of the tepid water into a small bowl. Add the yeast and blend using your fingers. Leave the yeast for five minutes to soften and dissolve.

Ok so I messed up this step. I didn’t read the instructions properly and boo was busy sorting out banging choons on spotify so I ended up adding my yeast to the whole 300ml of water. However it didn’t seem to be too bad and it smelled super good so I just powered through.

2. Mix the flour and salt together in a large mixing bowl. You may like to transfer your mixture to a pastry board or other flat work surface at this stage and prepare the dough there, in traditional Tuscan style. Otherwise, mix the dough in the bowl.

Yeah I’m nowhere near fancy enough to have a pastry board so we did it ye olde English way. In a bowl.

3. Make a well in the centre of the flour and salt mixture. Pour the blended yeast and water into the well along with the olive oil. Mix thoroughly. Gradually add the rest of the tepid water until a sticky dough is formed.

This was really bloody sticky. Obviously I used my hands and even after vigorous washing they still smell like dough. MMMmmm.

4. Transfer the dough onto a floured surface. Gather any stray pieces. Knead the dough for about 10 minutes, adding a little extra flour if necessary, until smooth and elastic and the dough no longer sticks to your hand. To see if it is ready, you can carry out the stretch test: pull off a piece of dough, it should be elastic enough not to break quickly when stretched out.

5. Next accumulate any stray ends and rough sections by 'chafing’ your ball of dough. Hold it and curve your hands around it, use your palms to pull at its sides gently while you slowly rotate it, letting your little fingers meet underneath. Do this for five minutes. You should be left with a neat, smooth ball.

6. Oil a bowl and place the dough inside and cover with either oiled cling film or a damp tea towel. Leave in a warm place to rise until doubled in size - about 1½ hours depending on the room temperature.

This was the point in the process where I remembered to take pictures. Also I messed up my elbow kneading the dough so boo took over. 

Before Proofing

After Proofing

That rose so much oh my word it was huge and the house smelled soooo good.

7. Use your fist to knock it back, then knead it again for a further two minutes.

8. Leave to rest again, but only for 5-10 minutes

It was at this point where I decided to go off recipe a bit and make up my own nonsense. I’d seen in other recipes that people had made a garlic and rosemary oil infusion to put on the focaccia and it looked goof so I gave it a go. 

9. Add a few teaspoons of the remaining oil into a saucepan and then add 3 cloves crushed garlic. Once the garlic has browned, add the rest of the 150ml of oil, and then add three sprigs of rosemary. When it reaches its boiling point remove from heat immediately and save for step 11.

10. After proofing shape the dough by placing into a shallow baking tray, using your hands to spread it out to a depth of about 1.5cm/¾in, then allow to rise again, covered with a tea towel, until doubled in size - this will take about 30 minutes. Preheat the oven to 200C/400F/Gas 6.

11. Strain the oil and save the rosemary and garlic pieces. Gently drizzle the oil onto the dough, don’t worry if it looks like there is too much, there isn’t. Then add the rosemary and garlic pieces and press into the dough with finger tips, creating dimples.

12. Sprinkle with sea salt/coarse salt and then bake for 25-35 minutes or until the top is crusty and cooked through to the base. Serve.

I’m not gonna lie, I forgot about the salt until about 15 minutes into cooking but I added it then and it turned out pretty well.

Voila! The finished focaccia! Made with love. I couldn’t have made it without @dommadude so thank you <3

★ Peace out witches!!! ★

There has been an important development.

The largest lemon tree has produced a flower. THE LEMON TREE HAS PRODUCED A FLOWER. In case you were wondering, yes - my greatest dreams have indeed come true and this proves that life is a fairy tale.

It took nearly one week of nervously staring at the tree (nearly nonstop) for the flower to progress from bud to bloom, but it happened. I can now confirm that lemon flowers are some of the sweetest, most irresistible things I have ever smelled. As shown in the above photo, the flower bud was ~1.5cm before bursting open.

So far, the tree has only produced one flower and that flower did not produce a fruit. Scientifically speaking, this is an interesting development because it proves that some varieties of store-bought lemon [seeds] can indeed produce a flowering tree after about 5 years. It remains to be seen whether or not the tree will be fruit-bearing. According to my understanding via various articles I’ve read through the years, it is quite possible that the tree will flower for some time before it will produce fruit. It is also possible that it may never be fruit-bearing.

Un-scientifically, I’d like to think this little flower was a “thank you” for the pruning efforts the tree underwent recently. It has happily grown tens and tens of bright green leaves as well.

Time lapse photos to follow!


So let’s talk petticoats and stockings, shall we?

After seeing the pictures of Caitriona in her petticoat, grey woollen stockings amd black boots, all worn underneath the grey Printshop ensemble, well, it was a given that both Sindy Claire and Gift DollClaire needed these undergarments too!

I made the underskirt with the shamrock broderie anglaise last evening - and it seems appropriate that Cait’s Gift Doll gets that underskirt, with the Irish connection and all 😀. I actually made it from the remnants of an old pillowcase, @dagmar686, but I only had enough material for one slip. 

So I dug around in my fabric box again and found some more of the soft white cotton I use to make all of the 18th century shirts, and also another strip of different broderie anglaise. Having sewn these two together, I then made a channel to thread a ribbon through the top to create the gathering, and voila a second petticoat for Sindy Claire.

As you can hopefully see from the pictures, I have made it so the underskirt sits alittle higher on Sindy Claire’s waist than the grey overskirt. This I hope will prevent the waist area becoming too bulky as other layers are added  - there is the waistcoat (vest) and jacket to come yet ( you see I have thought about these problems, @oquossocgal 😏)

As to the stockings, well they were simple! Took an old pair of my daughters school tights, where she had put the knee through, and cut off the foot. I then simply stitched two lines up the length of the foot, about 1.5cm in from either side and then cut along the length of these stitches to make two separate stockings.  I did this with both feet and within minutes I had 2 pairs of grey woollen stockings, 1 set for each doll.

I believe that by the time I have finished the whole outfit for both, they will be ready for anything, and that includes the Scottish weather!  😬😆

Astrid’s Skirt

I’m going to start the Astrid tutorials with her skirt! This was the most time consuming part of the project due to several reason. 1) I didn’t have the appropriate needles for my sewing machine so I had to sew by hand, 2) I did a lot of trials in order to achieve the right look, 3) it was repetitive work (not difficult, just repetitive). I’d also like to note that I used pleather for her skirt because I like to avoid using leather if possible. So this tutorial may/may not be helpful if you decide to use leather instead because the two materials are used differently.


  • About ½ yard fake brown leather
  • Three sheets of 12x18″ foam (the thin stuff aka craft foam), preferably brown or black
  • Brown/black thread and a LARGE sewing needle
  • Bobbie pins or other clips
  • Measuring tape
  • Paper, pens, ruler, markers, etc. (for template making)

Finally got around to dying my hair!! This time I went for a pink, yellow and blue combo, which looks totally different depending on how its worn. When its down the yellow section is basically hidden, so this hair has kind of a secret rainbow that I can bust out whenever I’m in the mood to be super colourful, hehe :)

Products used:
PINK: Alfaparf Jeans Colour ‘Pink’ (diluted with conditioner)
BLUE: DARE ‘Dolphin Dreams’
YELLOW: Fudge Paintbox ‘Yellow Fever’

How I did it:

  1.  First I sectioned my hair into the different colour areas, ensuring that the partings between the sections were nice and straight. I clipped each of them to keep them separate. A third of my fringe and roughly 1.5cm of the front of my hair next to my fringe were sectioned off for the blue. For the yellow the underneath area of hair above my ear (its hard to describe, but I parted my hair halfway down my head and sectioned off the area from there down over my ear). The rest of my hair was allocated to the pink dye.
  2. Then I mixed/prepared my dyes. When dying multiple colours, having them ready to go beforehand makes it much easier!!
  3. I dyed the blue areas at the front and in the fringe first.
  4. Next I applied the pink dye. I held the bulk of the hair up above my head and using the brush applied dye to the roots around the section first. Then I applied the pink dye to the rest of the section using both my hands and the brush, making sure to separate the section to ensure coverage all the way to the roots. I clipped this large section in place on top of my head in a rolled bun to keep it separate from touching any other coloured sections.
  5. Lastly, I applied the yellow.
  6. I left the dye on for 40 minutes - this is enough time that it will last a few washes, but won’t prove impossible to fade out of my hair when I want to change colours! 
  7. When rinsing my hair I used lukewarm water to preserve the colour, and firstly rinse the bulk of the dye off my hair each section at a time to stop any colour transferring. Then I rinsed my hair all over to get out any remaining dye.
