A sweet gift from a wickedly funny lady in our knitting group. I'm sharing my public thank you and what I think is the cutest fashion show ever.
Here’s where I share those projects that I’m working on. Some will later become free patterns here on TheCraftyTipster.com, others may turn into those sorts of ideas that get left behind in the work room. You’ll also find posts on crafting tips, bargain hunting and other assorted craft-related topics. I guess you could call this section my version of all those posts that don’t generally fit somewhere else on the site.
Celebrate spring and surprise someone or treat yourself to a wee little bunny by Michele. Super cute pocket-sized bunnies that will steal your heart.
What do you do when a small herd of rescued elephants get cold? You knit them jumpers of course. Super cute story from an Indian wildlife rescue center.
My first foray into paper mache since childhood - paper mache hearts for Valentine's Day. A great family craft although it can be a bit messy.

A WIP, a first attempt at an art doll with a green daisy skirt.
My first foray into punch needling with a cute pink flamingo pattern from Dimensions.

WIP for Valentine's Day felt rose heart pin, lighting woes and a great deal at Joann's are the topics for today.
You only need about 5 things to assemble a basic sewing kit for making felties. Forget the sewing machine and other pricy stuff some folks recommend.
