One of the main reasons I really got into crafting is because of the internet. Now that might sound rather strange but it was stumbling across a whole host of blogs written by very talented bloggers that made me want to give it a go myself. I thought I would share just a handful of my favourite craft blogs with you.
Written by Amy Karol, author of the fantastic Bend the Rules Sewing, this blog is a collection of her life and work. She makes aprons, clothes, quilts and all sorts. She is a superb papercrafter too. She’s amazing.
This supermum is an inspriation. She designs fabric, makes a ton of stuff with it and also manages to have five young children. She has also written a book called Seams to Me (remarkably, I don’t have this one but it’s only a matter of time, I am sure!).
I am so in love with her designs. Her little doll lady shows up on fabric and art – so adorable. Aunty Cookie is another fabric designer, crafter, artist and lives in Australia. You really should check out her Etsy shop too. Yum.
This lady is all about paper. Lovely, lovely, paper. She makes superb mini-scrapbooks which are anything but staid. She is a design genius and I could look at her website all day. She also has an Etsy shop.
Chock full of tutorials and fabric and pattern reviews, this is a fantastic sewing resource (and their online shop is superb).
Another Aussie-based quilter, Pink Chalk Studio has a great blog which showcases her own crafting, her new shop (which unfortunately I will most likely never visit), and items from her online store. I love her patterns (the coloured pencil roll makes a great present) and her creations are always fun and bright.
What are you favourite online resources? Share them in the comments and I will add to the blogroll.
