Are you crafty? What do you make?

Do you re-use any second-hand materials in your crafts?

If you're not crafty yourself, do you ever buy handcrafts from eg Etsy or Traidcraft? What sorts of things do you like?

I love to craft, I knit and am starting to get back into sewing (I am sewing Dd's Halloween dress, and I haven't sewn a garment since I was about 13). I also like to do random crafts like make wreaths and such, and I am starting to get into wood working, Dh and I are building a new dining room table next month!

I can be crafty if i'm in the mood to be.

As for reusing, not as a rule, but there are a lot of things I'd like to work with, like t-shirt yarn, making quilts out of t-shirts etc. I do tend to reuse things in my crafting.. like when I order things and they come packed with blocks of Styrofoam, I keep them for crafting projects (I'm sure Dh would love to see them moved to another room though. LOL they're on his bookshelf)

I make everything I can!! I recycle everything, seriously I keep crap just cuz i think i may use it, I have a box of crap... lmao

my recent projects....


legwarmers for Raini with pairs of my own socks.





headband & barefoot sandals made with felt and an old tshirt.



and for school my boys each have to contribute an item to put in a themed basket to auction off.

Stone's theme is LRS (lake road school) and Mason's is Rebels (which is the high school in town). I didnt have the cash so.... I created some favors using toilet paper rolls!

Are you crafty? What do you make?
Yes Not as often as I'd like to be but as often as I can.
I have just learned to knit so I'm working on that. I do a lot of all sorts of crafts - painting stuff, making cards, other paper crafts, candles, soaps, sewing, etc.

Do you re-use any second-hand materials in your crafts?
Yes, whenever I can

If you're not crafty yourself, do you ever buy handcrafts from eg Etsy or Traidcraft? What sorts of things do you like?
There are things I am not good at and would like to have but no I do not buy anything crafty things from anywhere.

I wish I was more crafty. Things I make turn out well when I'm in the mood, and have included candles, jack o'lanterns and wands.

Mostly I don't have the patience.



















I do like to buy or receive handmade things and have bought such things from Traidcraft.
