Wednesday, July 15, 2009

oh man are these pics from sarah london textiles making me want to get my hooks out start crocheting! i love the flower blanket! anyone have a pattern like that? you can find her work on here or on flickr.

rebecca danger is one of my fave knitters and i can never resist posting about one of her adorable creations. here's the link to her newest - "monster chunks". happy knitting.

craftynest always has wonderful projects to flex your crafting muscles with but this wine cork trivet caught my eye and i couldn't resist posting it. what a great idea to use up all those wine corks leftover from all the lovely summer drinking you may or may not be doing :)

i adore this necklace tute from resurrection fern and i admit i am mildly obsessed with her crocheted stones.....so lovely. check out her etsy shop for more eye candy.

these cute little boys knit capris from pickles caught my eye today.

gina at the shabby chic cottage has a great tutorial for this gorgeous honey bee pillow.

here's a lovely little roundup of girl's skirts that i can't wait to try:

1. baby, toddler or adult skirt tutorial from blue eyed freckle.
2. border fabric sundress from lil blue boo.
3. simple, sweet skirt tute from debra's creative ramblings.
4. a double ruffle, twirl skirt from treasures for tots.

swing by handmade by alissa for a free baby quilt pattern.

learn how to make your own fabric covered cork board over on sew spoiled. i was excited to see this as it's been on my to do list to make one of these for ages.

things i'm luving this week:

- check out this site if you are a bag lover who loves to make their own bags.

- who doesn't have loads of old tank tops laying around just begging to be made into fresh little girl's dresses? obsessively stitching has a tutorial showing you how to refashion yours.

- learn how to use to hem your own jeans.

- refashion that peasant blouse with "my mama made it".

- a great new skirt pattern that works for almost all shapes - even maternity, from "make it and love it" available in her etsy shop.
