November 16 ~ Gifts for the Crafter
|We, of course, have an affinity for all things crafty and found so many tutorials for your favorite, creative gift recipient. These would all be fun gifts for swaps too; we have several items here mentally paired with our favorite fabrics for projects throughout 2008!|
|Knitting Needle Case
Angie’s Knitting Needle Case Tutorial on her blog, Multicrafty, can organize “TONS” of needles in one handy (and cute) place.
|Reversible Sewing Machine Cover
Marie adapted a pattern to suit her needs and shares the result on her DIYnamite blog in her Reversible Sewing Machine Cover Tutorial.
|Sewing Machine Mat
Carina shares her “really easy” Sewing Machine Mat Tutorial via her craftblog|wardi.dk site.
|Roll-Up Crochet Hook Case
June’s Roll-Up Crochet Hook Case Tutorial on her Craftybits @ PlanetJune.com blog has lots of clickable photos and an easy-to-follow diagram.
Kerry’s Clothespin Bag Tutorial would be great for any laundry room, but we also think the bag would be a fun in any crafty spot in the house. It would be so efficient to pop scraps in the bag as you sew, or to quickly tidy up a knitting project (leaving it easily accessible!). Visit Kerry’s blog, live. craft. learn…, for more fun.
You’ll want to whip up twenty or so of these once you read Alison’s fun Point Protector Tutorial via her small things blog.
If you’d like to try a pattern, we suggest this one:
