DIY Pincushions

Check out our Craft Trends board on Pinterest!

I don’t know if I need as many pincushions as I would like to make, but they are seriously addicting. There are so many adorable pincushion crafts out there that I probably make pincushions more often than I actually use them. Pincushions are a wonderful way to use up scrap fabric and they make great gifts for your crafty friends. Here are some of my favorites.

If there’s one thing that reminds me of summer more than anything else, it’s that first bite of a perfectly ripe and juicy watermelon. I have so many memories of camping and barbecues where I ate way too much watermelon with my dinner. In addition to their delicious sweetness, the bright colors of watermelons make for the perfect summer craft projects!

Use Those Fabric Scraps!

Check out our Craft Trends board on Pinterest!

I’m horrible at sewing, but I love shopping for fabric. I also love grabbing cute fat quarters at the last minute when I’m fabric shopping. It’s a great way to feed your stash when you don’t have a specific project in mind. If you do sew quite a bit, chances are you have some scrap fabric lying around because it is often way too painful to throw pretty fabric away. Here are some wonderful projects for hoarders of scrap fabric and fat quarters.
