Craft Tutorial Thursday – March 1, 2012

It’s the day after Leap Day 2012. So, how could I not throw in an extra craft tutorial in this week’s Craft Tutorial Thursday post?

So much crafting goodness this week. Several of the folks have posted a number of great freebies and craft tutorials this week. To those industrious gals – I’m in awe at how much creativity you possess. The rest of us truly thank you for sharing it with all of us.

This week’s craft tutorials come from the worlds of paper crafting, felting, sculptural paper mache, crochet and decoupage. As you see, something for practically everyone to be inspired by this week. So, without further ado, here they are…


Sweetly Scrapped Art

St. Patrick’s Day is but a few wee days away and Emily has found some wonderful vintage St. Patrick’s Day printables for us.

Several vintage postcard and advertising images are included in this collection. She’s even helped us out be isolating some of the images from the backgrounds for us.

All of the images pay homage to green but several could easily be used all year round.


Craft Passion

Our first Easter project! Yay!

Learn how to wet felt easter eggs from that talented and crafty gal at Craft Passion.

This fully, illustrated craft tutorial also includes a video if you need a bit of extra help. Make one, make a couple, make a whole basket full of these clever felted eggs.


Creative Paper Mache

Not a true step-by-step craft tutorial for this one but certainly enough guidance for you to make your own wonderful Pele Silhouette with Spanish Moss.

Where was this super-cool idea when I still had Spanish Moss growing in my backyard?

Wouldn’t also make a great decoration for a little girl’s room?


Oak Hill Creations

This looks like a really simple pattern to master but makes such a pretty shawl.

Using the knot stitch, Judy has created the Lover’s Knot Shawl Crochet Pattern.

Once you master the stitch, you simply keep crocheting rows until you get down to one stitch – how cool – no counting! yay!


Mod Podge Rocks

Once again Amy over at Mod Podge Rocks has come up with a super cool project for us. Actually, she’s posted several craft tutorials this week but this one is my favorite. It’s a DIY City Subway Sign.

Ain’t it cool? Best of all, this project could work for any city or town by just using local street names. Of course, you could stick with those oh-so-famous New York City streets if you prefer.

And doesn’t that reproduction rotary phone just bring back the memories?


Curious Weaver

I’m not a weaver or a spinner but this craft tutorial/discussion on Spindle Weaves would seem really useful for anyone who does.

It sure makes a lovely weave. And the seven benefits Kaz mentions you gain from using this technique provide even more reason to give this weaving technique a try.

A few suggestions for further reading...
