Welcome to Craft Schooling Sunday, a wonderful creative get together which spans the globe, thanks to all the wonderful crafters and bakers that contribute every week! Fall is certainly here, which means it truly is a wonderful time to get crafting, and in this case, crocheting! The following features from last week's party are sure to inspire, with something for everyone:
Welcome to Craft Schooling Sunday, and my apologies for the delay in getting the party started, unfortunately my dear mother-in-law passed away on Shabbat, and we had to travel immediately after Shabbat for the funeral, arriving home early in the morning. Because we are in the middle of our festival of Succot, the mourning that is usually observed (by the children and spouse of the deceased) for seven days after the funeral is postponed until Thursday night. So now we must resume our festival, which also includes this party and all the amazing features from last week:
Love these crocheted peace signs from homemade at my place (Indonesia), and this fantastic knit bird by our resident knitting genius ginx craft.(United Kingdom)
Anne Marie (The Netherlands) is one of my very favorite crocheters, with such sweet creations, including this autumn garland.
And no surprise, Anne Marie (The Netherlands) also crocheted this fox pouch that she uses for crochet hooks, but could also be a pyjama bag. The simple crocheted flower tutorial from lizzie bella, (The United States) is perfect for coasters and garlands.
Another super crocheted lamp shade cover from estrea chikitu (The Netherlands), reminds me that I've been wanting to make one too!
And for the dessert portion of the party, a great looking apple shortcake with honey, cinnamon and lavender from Winnie, (Israel) and super fudgy brownies from everyday Trish (The United States.)That is it for the features, what have you been up to?
Welcome to Craft Schooling Sunday! We have just completed the holiday of Yom Kippur, which for many of us included a 24 hour fast, and now with the holiday of Succot in just four days, we are rushing to get ready for the wonderful 7 day holiday (8 days outside of Israel) for which I will hopefully get in some crafting! Succot is the craftiest of the Jewish holidays, and I have been known to pull all nighters creating decorations and making our succah truly special, but this year I already have some good decorations from last year, so there is less pressure than in previous years, which is great timing! As always the contributions from this international creative get together are certainly an inspiration, so thanks to you all! And now for the features from last week's party:
Welcome to Craft Schooling Sunday, and wishing you all a shanah tovah, a new year filled with goodness! I'm certainly looking forward to another great year of hosting this international and very crafty get together! And now, for the fabulous features from last week's party:
Welcome to Craft Schooling Sunday! This week we are busy preparing for Rosh HaShana, which starts on Wednesday night, so there's going to be a busy week of crafting and cooking in our house, which I hope to share with you all! In the meantime, last week's party was full of amazing creativity, some of which I'm featuring below. Thanks for joining me here!
A fantastic crocheted pillow cover from chris in de haak, with squares joined with a whip stitch, which looks great as her stitches are very neat!
More knits to wow from our resident knitter, a fabulous knit pillow cover from Ginx craft, and adorable embroidered booties also from Ginx craft.
A single granny square pillow, which is actually the other side of the pillow above, by chris in de haak, and a fun example of yarn bombing that my world of crochet did on a post just outside her home. Have you had the nerve to do something like this?
A super sweet peg doll project by art tea jannell, for a peg doll swap, love it!
Welcome to craft schooling Sunday, which started up again last week with a bang, and so many fantastic contributions from crafters residing in: Australia, Guatemala, South Africa, India, Pakistan, Germany, Italy, Slovakia, Muldavia, The Netherlands, Portugal, and the United States.
A fabulous homework caddy made from recycled boxes and duck tape from Aunt Peaches (The U.S.) and a super fun tiered rainbow maxi dress from threading my way (Australia)
A fun kid's thongs craft from Se7en (South Africa) and a super shaggy rag rug kids can make from artistic endeavors. (U.S.) Of course I've been wanting to do this for a pillow or a chair cushion, also a great way to use this technique, which in this case is like making a latch hook rug using rags!
My crochet projects (Germany) shares a fabulous pattern used to make a dense mat of little flowers, lots of patience required, and a fun crocheted "Lucy Bag" from Audrey B. (the Netherlands)
Love this crocheted bracelet that can also be used to make adorable wreathes and picture frames, from the little treasures. (Muldavia)
A fun and delicate crocheted edging for a simple tablecloth from Anna Simple Crochet (Portugal) and a good tutorial from crocheting edging on a fleece blanket from eye love knots. (The U.S.)
A truly amazing (and quite large!) crocheted granny square blanket from my world of crochet, (Germany)using the tradtional granny square in two sizes which shakes things up a bit.
Loe this embroidery sampler from Audrey B. (The Netherlands) and this fantastic medallion granny square baby blanket from Chris in de haak (The Netherlands)
Super simple and so practical DIY dry erase board from Aunt Peaches (U.S.) and a wonderful crocheted tablecloth in fall colors from Lanas De Ana (Guatemala)
A rustic rag garland from homemade interest (U.S.) and dried bamboo husk votive holders (never leave unattended!) from la pera de grillos (Spain) Okay folks, that is it for the features, what have you been up to?
Welcome to Craft Schooling Sunday, I'm back! After a fabulous month in British Columbia, Canada and New York, its back to reality, which means first of all getting this craft international party going, right? Hope you all had a fabulous August, and thanks for joinining me here, once again, looking forward to connecting with all my crafty friends from around the world, as Fall and Jewish holiday crafting approaches!

Welcome to Craft Schooling Sunday! Thanks so much for sharing all of your creativity here, and wishing you all a very crafty August. Now is the time to get started on that list of things you wanted to make this summer, and for some inspiration, hwere are the features from last week's party:
Fantastic string art from homemade interest, and a tutorial for making a fun accordian folded garland from craftiments, the perfect decoration to have on hand and to make now for the succah! I'd advise making a ton of them for maximum impact! How's that for keeping the kids busy?
Love love love this little dress with a crocheted top from Lanas De Ana, we've been wanting to try this too, as it is such a great way to combine crocheting and sewing and make a dress that will stand up to wear and tear. Of course one can also make teen girl and adult size shirts this way which look great too!
Welcome to Craft Schooling Sunday, the international linky party that last week had contributors from New Zealand, The United States, The United Kingdom, Portugal, Germany, The Netherlands, Sweden, Italy, Pakistan, India, and Israel. Thanks so much for joining me here.
Yes, we are very unfortunately at war here in Israel, and while my family and I are certainly very concerned about the safety of our soldiers and civilians, we are not at the moment directly affected by missiles. We do not have the need to run to bomb shelters as sirens sound, like so many other more Southern areas of the country, but our hearts are very heavy as we hear about the casualties. My husband served in the army and was called to war during his service, so he is particularly nervous. This shabbat many many prayers and psalms were said by our community, and of course around the country, for the safety of our soldiers in particular. Sending soldiers to war isn't a distant concept as it is for so many, for example, in The United States, its something that is right here and a grave reality. Please channel your positive thoughts to this sad situation! And for accurate reports regarding what is really going on, try reading The Jerusalem Post.
Okay, that said, last week's party was fantastic, with so many inspiring contributions, some of which I am now featuring here.
A wonderful and simple crocheted baby blanket from happy in red (The Netherlands), and a huge granny square blanket from chris in de haak (The Netherlands.)
Check out this filet crochet in progress from mara haakt (wow!) (The Netherlands) and some very creative craft studio organization from artistic endeavors (United States.)
An adorable felted dog made from a kit by artistic endeavors (The United States), and more fabulous knit mini coopers from ginx crafts. (The UK) Anyone tempted to have a go?
Love this sun hat made from scraps of liberty fabric, by mad for fabric (The United States) which would look great with a DIY lariat necklace from jewelry making journal (The United States.)(On the mad for fabric blog she has a post regarding on-line sources for purchasing liberty fabric if you're in the US.)
And last, but not least, make some fun kinetic sand, from there's just one mommy, (United States) or some super soft playdough from kids activities blog. (The United States) We have already tried the play dough, it's great but didn't last for future use, so do keep that into consideration when considering what kind of quantity to make! What have you been up to?
