December 27, 2011This IS Your Granny’s Crafting! Looking Forward Edition
By Betty Crafter
Do y’all think it’s a little crazy that I’m already planning out my craft projects for the coming year? Please, someone, tell me you do this too. Anyhoo…I’ve got some great things queued up for next year, and I hope you’ll be excited to follow along with me as I create breathtaking examples of handiwork and/or cry in frustration and humiliation at my ineptitude. Here are some things you can look forward to!
I have decided I am ALL ABOUT matching Christmas sweaters. Yes, I am that person. Next year, Little Betty and her cousin will be sporting these beauties in their picture with Santa:
Aren’t they glorious? There will also be a new baby cousin who will get something coordinating – maybe a vest or pinafore with the mushroom.
Mama needs a Christmas sweater too y’all! I think this one would be perfect:
Watch out Mr. Crafter. You’re next!
I’m also pretty excited about this rad pamphlet Retro Ruth sent my way:
The owl and kitty puppets are making my crafting fingers twitch! I’m thinking about getting Little Betty a puppet theater for her upcoming birthday, so it’s a perfect excuse to make an army of these.
I have been pretty enamored as of late with 60s paper mache art, so I was beyond stoked to find this:
A Gemma Taccogna inspired candleholder!
And I’m not sure if “perky” is the word I’d use to describe this cat, but I still want to make it. Pointy, yes. Demonic, maybe. Perky, definitely not.
Lastly, I’m pretty geeked up about Andrea’s upcoming Mad Men sewalong right here on No Pattern Required. I’ve even got my fabric plan down! Anyone else in on that?
