Summer Totes

Check out our Craft Trends board on Pinterest!

With summer in full swing, you may find yourself in need of a tote bag more often. Whether you’re headed to a farmer’s market, a pool, or the beach, totes are always handy to have around this time of the year. DIY totes are a great way to show off your style and make your bag easy to spot in a sea of lawn chairs. Here are some of my favorites.

Crocheted Tulle Dish Scrubby

My entire family loves crocheted dishcloths, my mom has even brought me yarn as a not so subtle hint that she needed more. I am not kidding. Awhile ago I was introduced to a tulle dish scrubby, and loved it, and may have even taken it apart, to figure out how to make my own.

I’M BACK! And I am so excited to share with you this necklace using last week’s crochet flower pattern. This project merged my two current crafting loves right now, crochet and jewelry making.

Yo-yos are fun and a little addictive to make. They’re great for watching your favorite TV show or movie, and they can help you use up your scrap fabric. Here are some of my favorite crafts that use all those fabric yo-yos you make.

Turn a yo-yo into a statement accessory piece. You can make it as large or small as you want. Use up some scrap fabric or let a little one pick out a few fat quarters.

Spring Crochet & Pom Pom Wreath

It’s raining, it’s pouring and this craft lady needed something to keep from snoring. They say it is officially Spring… But here in Portland we are in our longest season – RAIN. And it has been a wet one this year.  Thankfully the rain hasn’t stopped the flowers and trees from starting to bloom, and I wanted to steal (or copy) some of that beauty for my front door. I hope you enjoy this wreath.
