I love Sunday, because I just love being the hostess of this small yet oh so wonderful party! Just for the record, here in Israel Sunday is the first day of the week, meaning work, school etc. We are just too busy here to lavish on ourselves two full days of relaxation, ahem. The Israeli weekend is at best 1.5 or 1.25 days, Friday being a half day for many. That said, many of us have much less time than our counterparts around the world for crafting! Not making excuses, just thought you might like to know this little tidbit of info!
And of course obsessed crafters (like myself) will find the time, even when there isn't any, to try out some of the amazing projects from last week!
This week I'm starting the featured crafts with two very crafty and lovely food projects. These poured icing cookies from thedecoratedcookie are just too adorable, and I've never seen anything so enchanting as these pie-rate apple pie ships from diamondsfordesert. Check out the step by step instructions for both of these — I really really want to try that poured icing trick...don't you?
Thanks to Jhoanna from Australia who has so generously shared the pattern for this oh so cute doll from her site oneredrobin. And I just love these felt green onions from masteringeverydaycrafts, over in Hawaii. Where do people who live in Hawaii go for vacation, or maybe they don't need one?
I'm always amazed by craftpassion, who lives in Malaysia! I love fabric yo-yos, so these crocheted ones are naturally something I'm going to try soon! And don't you just love the idea of making your own fabric tape? Check out the tutorial at simplymodernmom.
This travel bag from createstudio is not only cute, but super practical, actually genius, combining a backpack with a removable pillow! And we have a new guest from Poland, coco-nut with this super cute robot themed birthday card. And don't worry, the language of crafting is international! My Polish isn't very good either.
i just love the watercolor butterflies that childhoodmagic painted to use as balancing butterfly party favors. And this hexigon pouch is just the sweetest, from Karenmarie in Denmark! I've learned that google translate does only a very rough job of translating, but enough to pick up the info on how this was made: hexigons fused to a backing and then machine embroidered with some nice basic stitches.
Inspired? Me too! Let's keep the momentum going, start sharing! And please don't forget to link back to this party with a text link or a button. Thanks so much!
