Dora’s Den


Thank you for subscribing to the Dora Does newsletter and Welcome to Dora’s Den!  This is the hidden part of my site, just for you lovely newsletter subscribers.  Think of it like a blanket fort where you can come to hide and be surrounded by soft squishy comforting things and escape all the noise.  No one expects you to adult whilst you’re here.  Infact, we actively frown upon it!

So the first thing I’m doing to welcome you is to give you free, secret access to the Beehive Beanie Pattern!  It’s a lovely squidgy cosy beanie which is a pretty quick and therapeutic make which will keep you toasty.   Click here to access the pattern.

The first Saturday of each month you’ll receive my newsletter which has all the latest Dora Does goings on, my monthly mantra and some special offers just for you. I may send you other updates throughout the month from time to time but don’t worry, there won’t be any spam, just goodies, useful info, motivation and happy email!

I’d love to see your finished objects so feel free to share links to your socials below or tag me @doraexplored on Instagram in your Dora Does makes, just use #HookMeHappy and I’ll find you!

Thanks for coming

Biggest Love
