Do you dream of creating a handmade life?


It’s easier than you think. 

Make + Do is a celebration of handmade and DIY style, with a liberal dash of retro flair.

It’s produced by me, Lisa Scott: a runner, writer, maker and mum who embraces the ‘make do and mend’ attitude, and I know you can too! 

Join me on my handmade adventures, and be inspired to get making too!

Review: Gertie’s New Book For Better Sewing

I've long been a fan of Gretchen Hirsch (known as Gertie) and her blog Gertie's New Blog for Better Sewing. I love her rockabilly style, kitschy-cute dresses and her treatise on feminism and foundation garments. She really is an entertaining and interesting writer. So when I heard she'd released her first book, Gertie's New Book For Better Sewing in 2012, I was thrilled. It took me ages to get the courage to buy it though! read more

Music for Making

Listening to music while making is essential, don’t you think?

Each month I produce a new playlist to help you feel great and get your creativity flowing. You can listen to this month’s playlist directly from this website, or you can follow Make + Do on Spotify and choose from previous month’s playlists.

This month, I’ve chosen upbeat songs to get you moving and feeling fantastic!

Do you love Instagram too?

Why not join me on my favourite platform? Instagram has helped connect a global community of stitchers and gatherers, retro and vintage mavens, makers and menders, and it’s a fun place to be! I hope to see you there!
