Yet another great party last week with so many wonderful projects from around the world. From places like Turkey, Muldavia, The Netherlands, The United Kingdom, Poland, Canada, Italy, The United States, New Zealand and Slovenia! I'm really loving the combination of crafting, armchair traveling, and world geography — it sure does keep things interesting, don't you think? Tell me honestly, do you know where Slovenia is? If not, well don't worry I had to look it up, and there's a good reason why some of us don't know where it is......it's a newish country as of 1991, formed after the collapse of the Yugoslavian Republic, ahhh, you feel better now don't you? It borders with Austria to the North and Italy to the West, Croatia to the South. Now we know!
Before I get carried away with the geography lesson, thanks to all of you who took a moment to share last week, and here are some of my favorites:
I just love these fun fabric flowers, from creation corner, complete with a great tutorial! And did you ever see a felt tissue monster? Me neither, and I think this one is just the cutest, and such a great idea, thanks to the wray sist3rs.
Camilla over at family chic is at it again with this super pink newspaper vase sleeve. And these pom poms from craftaholics anonymous, well guess what, they're made from strips of old t-shirts! Brilliant right? You can make the pom poms using strips or you make yourself a ball of t-shirt yarn (my tutorial here) and use that! Either way as long as you've got some old t-shirts on hand, you're in business!
This lovely basket is made by la maison reid, and is a perfect example of the type of project I'd love to do. Unfortunately I don't have flax growing on my driveway to harvest for this project, inspired by Maori basket making from New Zealand! I just love this fabric y0-yo pillow from pick up some creativity, really unique, and the back is a really great floral. Check it out together with some other really great pillow ideas!
Yippee, Lilla A. Design is back to share with us, and I was absolutely thrilled to learn about a product that allows one to decorate porcelain, like the mug that her daughter made here. It's paper backed, oven cured plastic sheet called color dekor, and from what I can see it's a product available in the UK and Europe/Scandanavia. Anyone seen this for sale anywhere else, or know of a similar product? And this adorable crocheted apple coaster— just too sweet and also from the Netherlands from anne marie's breiblog
Wouldn't it look great sitting under the mug?
Love these toilet paper tube binoculars, from crafts by Amanda, using camouflage patterned felt! And speaking of yo-yos, Amy over at mod podge rocks transformed these adorable wooden yo-yos, a great idea for a personalized gift or party favor!
And now, let the party begin, can't wait to see what craftyness has been happening around the world.
