I kid you not, but I actually still love to do craft. I have a knitting project, a hexagon project and a few embroidery ideas here for sure, but most of all a whole slew of paper craft projects going on. It’s just not visible in the blog right now. Once my knitting project is finished, I will take photos and show you the wonders of it I promise.
I would love to sew more, marble, wood work and cook something up in the kitchen, hence a link collection for inspiration was curated and set up. It’s a small one, with only five great ideas – but all of them worth checking out if you ask me. I hope you find something new and fun that you want to try.
Let’s check the pretty craft ideas by others out today while I drink my coffee…
Five pretty craft ideas to try
- Tutorial: Super-Duper Easy Way to Face a Quilt
A tutorial by Silly-Boo-Dilly Victoria on how shes faces a quilt (Or: How to Sew a Non-Binding Binding). Facing a quilt is a way to bind your quilt without having the binding show on the front. I want to try this method if I ever make another quilt!
- Marbling with Nail Polish Tutorial
Did you know you can do marbling with Nail Polish? Carla Sonheim shows this trick in a short video tutorial on how she tried marbling with nail polish. I’m thinking: it’s time to clean the bathroom from all those tiny bottles of sticky, icky nail polish I never use…
- DIY Wood Hexagon Coasters
Every time I see a fun wood craft project I think of my friend Maria who is a woodwork teacher and awesome crafter. I also wish I had a more readily available access to a wood work studio, especially one equipped with a machine saw for making little figures (and coasters!) in wood. Wood is full of potential and it’s so much fun to work with when you have the time and room for it.
- Tutorial for DIY Bath Bombs
Kim Werker calls them bath fizzies, and her post really inspires me and makes me want to make these for myself and all my friends! If only I had a bigger kitchen…
- Vintage Linen Bunting Tutorial
When I came upon this post about how to make an Antique Embroidered Garland I had to bookmark it – and swoon. This is eye candy, and would invite me down into my thrifted stash of cute vintage “stuff”…
I also think that you should check out my most recent review of Diane Gilleland’s sewing book All one point and perhaps leave me a comment or two. Or if sewing is not your thing, there are a lot of craft ideas in the archive. A lot. No pressure though, I know you’re busy. But today I ask myself: when shall we do any of all these wonderful crafts that we save for later – if not now, when it’s a summer weekend full of ever lasting time?
By the way, do you like my 3-color-summer-nails? They make me so happy.
