My favourite craft blogs

As the blog post title states, this is a compilation of my favourite craft blogs!

I am rather obsessed with this page! It's so beautiful and there are so many tutorials. I am not one to buy patterns and stuff, as I can usually figure them out myself or ask my mom, but if I were to buy patterns online, I would go straight to the Sew Like My Mom Etsy Shop. I really like the little kiddie clothes that the crafter makes, they're absolutely beautiful.

Felted Button - Colorful Crochet Patterns
I really, really love this blog. If you are a crochet fan, this is the place for you! I really struggle with crochet, I find it rather difficult to handle and it makes me very frustrated very quickly. However, this blog finds ways of making things just so... manageable. There are so many photos along the way that I can take things one step at a time, which is really helpful.

Such a wonderful and easy tutorial on how to make a crochet bracelet

I apologize for the pixelated image that comes with this- it's impossible to get hold of Mod Podge Rocks' logo! I love this page- it is an absolute treasure trove of beautiful things. When I first got into decopage and using modge podge, I went straight to this site and was not disappointed.

Just as the name suggests, washi tape crafts are what you'll find here :P Some really pretty ideas, and some really simple ones too. My favourite tutorial is shown below, a simple way of making gorgeous washi tape stickers. These will look beautiful on anything!

I feel like this blog doesn't end. There are just *SO* many gorgeous ideas and amazing things to do. Since there are so many to choose from, I'm going to show you some of my favourites, ones that I intend on trying in the future!

This here is so beautiful... I'd like to make a larger one and keep my jars of tea on it!

I would use this tutorial even just as a tutorial for a decoration! Even if I didn't make it into a lamp. This is such a lovely idea, I'd like to even have the roof able to come off so I can use it as a cookie jar!

I haven't tried this yet, but I've been dying to experiment with shrinky dinks so I'm definitely going to give this a try next ^.^

This blog is actually one that I have only just come across. I found it now while looking through my favourite blogs! This one has definitely now become a part of my daily life. This is the tutorial that grabbed my attention:


And as you all know, I am a sucker for gorgeous plushies!


I've been wanting to make myself a few of these for a while, so I decided to plonk the tutorial here, I need to be reminded of what I am doing every once in a while! I think every crafter needs stash bins like these, I have so much crap everywhere that I'm sure my fiance will really appreciate some organisation in our tiny flat!

I really hope you've enjoyed reading about my favourite blogs to stalk, please let me know if you have any of your own to share!
