Gifts for your Crafter

What to get for the crafter in your life?? Supplies of course to make their lives easier!

We all have though about saving those pesky plastic bags to create wonderful crocheted totes from, well, get them one step close with these bags already cute and wound up into balls so you can jump right in with your crochet or knitting project (from Copabananas)Okay, so let's say your crafter loves making things but needs a great pattern to follow to be able to craft to their true potential? KnitKnit has some great knit patterns from the Berry bag to a bustier - oh la la! Challenging!
Or maybe your Crafter like a good long read about a topic before embarking on it, mixed with tns of projects and instructions to show you how it's done. Well, try Kayte Terry's Applique Your Way. {look for me around page 30 modeling a fetching appliqued trench coat}

This books gives step by step instructions on applique techniques as well as 35 great projects you would actually wear or use for your home [plus on a local side tip, all the photos were taken right here in Brooklyn].

Happy Shopping, i hope you get your crafter everything they want need to create stunning pieces that you will cherish always!

Yes, supplies or books on crafting are excellent presents! I've asked for embroidery scissors, drawing pencils, gum erasers, glue... things that my children can buy on their small budget.

Should I be embarrassed to admit I pretty much got my mother craft supplies every single year for a decade? Clearly I'm on board with this post.
