Shelf 51ewhodvyml

We chat to Alina, give you a chance to win the book and learn how-to knit a Seed Rib Stitch Pom-pom hat.

I am Alina, a creator of The Gift Of Knitting website, passionate knitter and knitwear designer. I spend all my free time knitting, taking photos of yarn, preparing blog posts and browsing knitwear blogs. Literally there is no day without knitting in my life. I love it with all my heart and feel very fortunate to have the opportunity to share it with so many people.

We're getting creative with Harris Tweed for this week's #FabricTest and showing you how to make a pair of tweed Converse, a red carpet bow-tie and a tweed pocket satchel!

Create an art deco inspired soiree in #DIYTheParty with campaspe.

The Art Deco style is a total art that influenced the design of fashion, furniture, cars, trains and more generally of almost all the objects in a household. It was an international style, influenced as well by the cubism, fauvism and exotic styles from China and Japan and therefore it still speaks to people in different country. It is classy, yet inexpensive and easy to adapt to all circumstances: mostly you will only need a black and white printer and a little bit of glue. Therefore it’s also an ideal theme for marriages and parties. For example, it’s a nice decor for Hercule Poirot style murder parties or treasure hunts since most of the town still have building from this style: To gather some friends, take pictures from details on these building that they will have to recognize on a path through the town.




We're testing out the Scribbler 3D Pen in #CraftTest and showing you how-to make a Sugar Skull Vase, Cat Ear Ring, London Eye Terrarium and DIY Cookie Cutters.

Come behind the scenes at Chinese Soul Food for a #KitchenTour and see Hsiao-Ching's kitchen in Seattle!

Our kitchen and dining room are combined. I love how the space is the keeper of so many family moments, traditions, and, of course, memories of so many meals.



Recreate the look of Tracee Ellis Ross in #DIYTheLook with Tiffany from Paper Michey.

What I love about Tracee is her fierce, elegant, vivacious personality and style to match. She always looks effortlessly put-together whether she’s dressed up or down. She is ultimate style goals. I created this look around her fabulous hair in addition to her love for statement jewels and a bold lip.




Join Gabriela Szulman for a #CraftRoomTour of her art studio in Camberwell, London.

My studio is totally self-contained and its size (50 m2) makes it possible for everything to have its place so that it never feels cluttered.

Feminist Felties

Shelf 51qeauvghul

We chat to Missy, give you a chance to win the book and learn how-to sew a Rosie The Riveter coin purse.

By day I’m a corporate writer for an event production company and by night I’m chasing after a toddler and doing all that family life entails (there is also a pair of cats and a husband and a baby on the way). I’m the kind of person who always has to have some sort of project going on apart from anything (and everything) else—even if it means very late nights and very little sleep. I was born and raised and live in the northern/midwest United States and I really like the sort of wry and pragmatic adaptability of the area. There is a lot of practical crafting (quilting, crochet, knitwear) that is ingrained in the culture here. I love to read and garden and travel—or just run around outside to burn off steam. I also have the etsy shop: The Craft Subversive https://www.etsy.com/shop/CraftSubversive that I run as a hobby.
