Since the blogging world loooooves a good holiday, there have of COURSE been fun ideas put out into the world recently. Find some standout project inspiration in the new Picks of the Week!
Once again, spring crafting season has served up some excellent (and egg-celent!), fresh ideas.
It’s officially spring, and there were so many cute bunny crafts published online this week! The pom pom bunny is clearly this year’s big trend.
Spring is definitely here! Sometimes in the yarn craft world, that means you simply see a lot less yarn, period. So far this season, that is decidedly not the case.
What makes this unusual knit item so special isn’t just its handmade and vintage status. It’s a nice reminder about the value of handmade gifts – even ones as random as a chicken-shaped egg cozy!
Easter may be behind us now, but there are still so many ways to get inspired to DIY this spring. Cinco de Mayo is coming up fast, and there’s always room in any season to DIY some awesome jewelry! Other than getting inspired by the crafty internet to DIY, you can always jump in on the Knit Along I’ve got going on Hands Occupied, or you can throw your hat in on the ring to win a copy of Washi Wonderful for more great craft ideas. Read on for my favorite inspiration of the week.
Easter weekend is finally upon us! And once again, the craft blog world did NOT disappoint. The decoupage bunny eggs and doodle eggs above are particular faves of mine from this whole Easter season. I wonder what will inspire the world’s DIYers next month? Mother’s Day? Spring gardening? I can’t wait to see what everyone posts next week!
This last minute Easter egg garland is super simple, festive, and adorable! It takes just a few minutes to make and only a handful of supplies. In past years I haven’t done too many Easter DIY projects, but I’m so glad I changed my habits this year. The trends are especially colorful and cute this season, I think that’s what got me so inspired!
I can’t believe it’s Friday and I’m just now remembering to tell you guys about the wonder that was YarnCon. It’s a two day yarn/knitting/crochet/fiber/etc. show in Chicago. Last weekend was my first time attending, and I got to take workshops on new casting on techniques and entrelac with knitting designer Theresa Schabes, and I definitely bought some beautiful sock yarn from Icemelon’s Stash. I had a nerdy blast and can’t wait to practice my new skills!
