Introducing "Get Crafty" on SoCalledMom.Com

Craft Challenge

Need a new hobby? Then look no further! I have always wanted to make my own stuff. Weather it be reconstructed, up-cycled, or handmade. I would look at projects and tutorials for hours on youtube, I would draw pieces of clothing I wanted to design, look at esty for inspiration, Yet I never really attempted to do much. I used to say "I can't do that, it looks complicated" and if you do too, know that you CAN! All it takes is some time, practice, and dedication. I will be posting my crafts with tutorials, tips, and references. You can ask me ANY question, I will try to answer to the best of my ability. I would also love to see your family, fashion, or home decor crafts and projects, post them and you will be featured here! First easy craft challenge is crocheting, it's pretty much like braiding with a needle. It's elementary, cheap, and very versatile. The great thing about crochet is yarn is cheap, comes in a variety of colors and you can make many different things. For beginners, I would start with these easy projects such as a scarf, blanket, dish cloth, or sofa throw. I used this tutorial here to crochet the scarf and the blanket I'm working on. I suggest you use the correct needle, I am using a 5.50mm which is a larger needle meant to create larger loops, I kept pulling them tight, and it made the scarf/blanket curl a bit! So what will you do? A scarf to keep your toddler warm? a hat to gift someone, a blanket or sofa throw to decorate your home? If you do a project please post the image in a comment, or a link to your blog post and I will link your site for a month on my sidebar ^_^
