DIY Crafts Party 41 Features + Linky

Knitting Patterns

I promised last party that I’d show off those party visitors who leave comments and visit others in the party. Today is the day. I’d like to showcase two people who frequent our party who actively go out of their way to visit others, and their expertise in crafts & DIY design.

Want to be featured also? Do as they do and follow others in our parties and leave us a comment with whom you have visited.

1. How to: Natural Book Bindinghowto_bookbinding

by Terry Wong.

If you haven’t visited Terry’ s blog yet, you must. Particularly if you love natural and artistic use of textile and yarn. You will be in for a delight! Her work is stunningly beautiful, and ranges from naturally dyed silk scarves, to nori felted arm warmers to lots of nature- embellished hand-bound books. All refined and special. She shows us a tutorial with many pictures on how to make this hand-dyed and hand-bound book.

Do visit Terrie’s blog!

As you know, I visit each and every one of you who join me here at the party. So I know all of your fabulous ideas submitted, beyond the two projects mentioned above. So let me feature another 6 here, that I think are worthy of you visit also.
