I am always wondering how creative a crocheter can be. Kara at Petals and Picots is one such example who is too creative for her talent. She has proved it again with this cute little thanksgiving gift. As she says in her blog,
I wanted to make a cute and colorful turkey to add to my Thanksgiving table. I made his body and sweet little face but couldn’t think of how I wanted to make the wings. Then it came to me … granny squares!! I am so happy with how he came out. Hope you enjoy making Mr. Gobble too!
Hat’s off Kara. He came out great that it forced me to write about you and your project in this blog. You can read her tutorial for making this Thanksgiving Turkey Crochet Pattern from HERE.
This is not actually a tutorial but, there’s no point in writing a tutorial either. No one needs a tutorial for learning the method of simple weaving. It will come to your hand by seeing a woven project just like that. The specialty of this project comes over because this woven rug is made out of loops cut with old t-shirts. Just random colors are used but the overall project looks great as you see it. If you have few dozens of old t-shirts you should try making one like this too. HERE is the original source.
After a very long absence I am here again with another craft post. Personal problems kept me away from updating this blog so I ask forgiveness for that. I’m always been a great influencer of upcycling so after about a month, my first choice was a list of upcycling projects to try. There are 40 upcycling ideas collected at hometalk which will make you think about your old clothes in a new way. You can find these 40 brilliant upcycling ideas from this PAGE.
Upcycling old items to new one gives a joy of almost being an inventor! It makes you feel useful and inspired. Upcycling also restores the value of your most precious things in different form like those gifts from your mother or granny that you don’t want to throw away but cannot keep them any longer.Another usefulness of upcycling is economy.Why spend big bucks,when you can make something out of the old ones!Enough said already! We stumbled upon a cute photo tutorial that can raise many eyebrows. Shared on www.96195.com this pictures instruct how to make a hat from old sweaters (or mittens). Check for yourselves HERE.

We, crafters are so passionate about our craft that, quite often we feel compelled to try an exciting project even without a given pattern. It is the “Idea” that ignites the creativity in us.We found something like that on www.fabdiy.com. This “out of the box” idea is very intriguing. The basic blocks of handbags are shown in the pictures for us to figure out the assembly. The finished products look very chic and suave. May be you can experiment with different mediums and methods that you are familiar with to get a similar result.Let us know your experience with this project. We found this page HERE.
This classy dress yell “Sweet girl of hollywood”. Jamie Christine from www.pretty-ditty.blogspot.com, has shared an amazing dress pattern on her webspot.
