I have to admit, Harry Potter took a lot out of me (loved the book, by the way), so I haven’t started a new project yet. So, instead of my own craftyness, I thought I would share some cool projects from other sites and a few links:
Beck’s Blog – she makes the most AMAZING afgahns. Be sure to check out her Harry Potter themed blankets and one of her latest, Frankenstein.
Burda Style has a whole new look (and some new features too)! They are also looking for someone in the NYBrooklyn area to do some sewing for their new collection (in the next 2 weeks) – if you’re interested contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more info.
Win a travel sewing machine! Just link to Craft Gossip to be entered.
Make a cardigan like Luna Lovegood’s in Order of the Phoenix or try your hand at making a pair of radish earrings.
Ever wondered how those bias tape makers worked? Purl bee has a great tutorial for them along with a cute napkin project.
The Knitty Summer Surprises are up!
Think you’ve got what it takes to design a tee? If so, submit your entry to Threadless and you could not only win $2,000 but a slew of cool high-tech gadgets (can anyone say iPhone?)
A preview of the new Craft magazine is up (the new issue is available on newsstands August 7).
