Pinterest gets crafty with Kirstie Allsopp and The Handmade Fair


Pinterest UK has teamed up with the queen of crafting and home DIY Kirstie Allsopp and her newly launched The Handmade Fair.

To celebrate, 10 crafty Pinners were invited along to the V&A to practice their paper crafting skills with Kirstie and artist Poppy Chancellor.


On a very sunny afternoon, these lucky Pinners joined bloggers and journalists in creating their own papercut bunting pennants – using exclusive designs created by Poppy. These were all then strung together to create a beautiful collaborative piece of work.


Afterwards, we all got the inside scoop from Kirstie Allsopp about her favourite crafts and where she finds her inspiration. Kirstie also explained, quite wonderfully, why she felt the therapeutic effects of craft were so important and why she’s so passionate about founding The Handmade Fair.


Kirstie and The Handmade Fair are also aiming to break the Guinness World Record for the longest line of pompoms. Kirstie makes a mean pompom but she can’t possibly do them all herself – she needs your help!

So grab your wool and get involved with #worldpomination. See Kirstie’s favourite pom pom creations here and submit yours on Twitter using #worldpomination.
