Craft Ideas

I have been browsing the internet looking for different ideas on the craft front that I am quite interested in having a bash at, but at the rate I am doing things at the moment it will take me forever to do hence the pit stop here for all the things that interest me so that I can pick up on the tutorials, craft ideas, items to make, suppliers at a later date and so that everything is altogether in one spot and I am not hunting around trying to locate something I knew I had.


As I find further things I will update.

Catch you soon

The first is a little bag tutorial which gives a link to suppliers.  What I loved about this bag was that you could make several different versions and just utilise the same frame, although the frames would not seem to be too expensive via the supplier below.  I thought that this might make a nice little present for a friend or friends say make two different versions so that they have the option of updating their bag to what they are wearing.

I would also mention that I regularly use the Craftsy Website - I have never purchased any of the classes but would mention that they do put up tutorials for free every so often which I download.  It might be worth checking them out every few weeks or so and putting in free in the search and they should slowly build up.

You have to register to create your own link and then you get the opportunity to save these free classes/tutorials.

This is also a very good site for Freebies  - although there are patterns to buy there are lots of free ones across several different types of craft

  1. I have used craftsy for several things, I have purchased some classes, but only at a much reduced rate. Its good to go back and look them over.

    Thier classes are very good too. Have not looked at anything other than the quilting though.

  2. I love Craftsy. I've been a knitter forever, but never tried to make a sweater until I took a sweater course from them. I loved it. So wonderful to be able to watch all the different lessons anytime I want and to be able to ask the instructor questions. I'm hoping to learn about stranded colorwork next. They offer 50% off many classes quite regularly and have wonderful sales on supplies as well!
