I’m an avid knitter, but I know it’s not for everyone. I have some friends I’ve taught to knit who haven’t even cast off their first scarf. Here are some great alternatives to knitting that give you the look of a knitted project without the needles!
Halloween is less than two weeks away. I just bought some pumpkins to decorate with the kiddos, and I’m gathering supplies for other spooky crafts we can do to prepare for and celebrate Halloween.

Light up your windows and mantels with these glowing jack-o-lantern faces.
Often times at parties, it’s easy for wine glasses to get confused. There are countless “wine charm” products out there for you to buy to have guests put on their glasses; there are even DIY wine charm projects out there. But wine charms don’t protect your wood surfaces from damage; you still need a coaster for that. So, why not combine the idea of a wine charm with the practicality of a coaster? Follow this tutorial and make wine coasters out of all your scrap fabrics. Guests will be able to identify their wine glass by the fabric on their coaster and you don’t have to worry about running around with coasters!
Fall has arrived in Oregon and there’s a chill in the air. My hands get cold easily so I made this mouse muffler to keep my hand warm while I’m surfing online this coming winter. If you live in an especially cold climate you can line it with fabric to make it even warmer.
For some reason, many of the people in my life have September birthdays. Wine is such a great gift. Whether it’s as a birthday present or a hostess gift, it can be thoughtful and fun. To add that little bit a flair to a carefully picked out bottle of wine, I make my own wine bags. These bags are easy to make and are reversible! Best of all, unlike gift bags, they can be reused to carry wine on picnics or to other gatherings.
Needle felting is a fun and easy craft project that requires little cleanup and minimal equipment. It can be used to create large and elaborate projects, or small home decorations. This tiny jack-o-lantern is a great beginner’s project.
