This is one of those BAM! Why didn’t I think of this….we have cases for knitting needles and crochet hooks, why not sewing needles (mine go in a pin cushion on my sewing basket’s lid. Nice job!
You guys, have you heard of needle books?! Okay, so not only are these unbelievably adorable — complete with felt flower embellishments, embroidery, and a button closure — but the mini-books are made to hold your needles! Yes, your needles, so those frantic digging-through-drawers-cause-you-have-to-finish-this-project-and-can’t-find-a-needle episodes will be a thing of the past! The multi-hued wool-felt book created by Mmm Crafts carries four pages of stiffened felt to park your tools in, and, better yet, it even has a little hook so you can hang it on the wall for easy access. We’re going to continue geeking out over a cup of tea and crocheting projects — no more lost needles!! — so, talk amongst yourselves.
Nice colorful skulls for day of the dead. Incredible work with the seed beads!

I remember seeing my grandma make things like this. It’s like there is a whole generation of us out here just sort of flapping in the wind from gusts of loneliness or despair or boredom. Do what our grandmothers did - CRAFT YOUR ASS OFF! You’ll feel better and have some new nifty thing. I am glad to see so many young crafters and makers making things and sharing them with the rest of the world. Use the Internet for good, not evil! And a big thank you to all the designers and crafters who I am grateful for sharing their creations and inspiring me…
This looks very interesting, I like the recycling appeal - anyone who has taken a sweater apart to make something new would understand that. Lovely.
Nice embroidery, even nicer is the quote…
I would if I could, you know, eat you up and keep you in some safe warm space under my beating heart, shield you from the darkness that eats at your edges and heal you and fortify you back to whole with the strength and splinting of my own bones. I wish I could cocoon you and breathe joy into your lungs when I kiss you and fix everything in your world that’s broken, but all I have are these stupid words and arms that long to hold you hard and fast away from the nothing.
But what is CHEX?
