Fabulous Craft and Sewing Blogs

19. February 2013 07:52 by tbev | 0 Comments

Ready for some DIY eye candy? Here's a handful of fabulous bloggers you should be following. 

A Stitch in Dye - Blogger Malka Dubrawsky creates colorful, imaginative designs that make fabric sing. If you're a quilter or a crafter, you'll be inspired to tackle one of her amazing creations. Favorites include Cheater Cloth and Twinkle Coverlet.

The Crafty Crow - If you love crafting with your kids, this is a site you need to bookmark. There is so much here to keep you and the kids engaged in the creative, crafty process. Check out the great St. Patrick's Day Crafts

Angry Chicken - This site is full of fun inspiration and great writing. You'll be inspired to look at your projects in a whole new way. I love blogger Amy Karol's way of appreciating the old and the new and finding creative ways to incorporate them together. Check out Vintage/New Quilt

Make and Takes - This site is a gold mine of fun, simple, craft ideas to do with your kids. Most of the time, the ideas incorporate simple supplies you already have around the house, like this simple Drawstring Bag. Brilliant!

Pair these great blogs with our novelty fat quarters, and I'd say it's a match made in heaven!
