20+ Free Knit Bag Patterns for Summer!

I’m Marie Segares from Underground Crafter and I’m thrilled to share a roundup of knit bags with you today! Whether you’re an old pro or you’re just learning how to knit a bag, there will be something here for you.

As the weather gets warmer, you may be wondering what to knit. I love working on knit bags in the warmer months. Knit bags are portable so you can bring your work-in-progress to that picnic or barbecue, and they are useful year-round, so you can show them off as soon as you finish knitting! No need to wait ’til Fall.

There are many great bag patterns out there, and today I’m sharing more than 20 free knitting patterns that will keep you knitting all spring and summer long!

Easy-Peasy Knit Bags

These five bags use simple stitches and make great projects to work on while somewhere slightly distracting.

Link Love: How to Make a Scarf for Spring or Summer

If you were to ask my husband how many scarves I own, he would probably say something close to, “Too many,” or “A ba-jillion.” While he may be pretty accurate with those statements, there are so many ways to wear scarves for each season that I can’t possibly ever have too many scarves. On that note, I should probably get going on making my own scarves for a change. I crochet quite frequently and I loved making this crochet scarf that I wore in my engagement photos, but now that it’s spring I really want to make a DIY fabric scarf.

I have expensive taste and I love the designer looks, but I definitely hate the designer price. So, I set out on a mission to find the perfect DIY scarf – and ended up finding 17 free patterns that have stolen my heart. I do apologize in advance for the high number of infinity scarves in this list if you don’t like them. (Scratch that, I actually did a pretty good job mixing normal scarves and infinity scarves in this list). Infinity scarves are my absolute favorite so you’ll just have to deal. 😉 (or, you know, just not sew the ends together and voila, you’ve got a normal scarf)

Sewing an infinity scarf will be my next adventure in the crafting world. I’m excited because making an easy infinity scarf has been on my crafting list for awhile. With each infinity scarf tutorial below you’ll be itching to pull out your sewing machine. Learn how to make a infinity scarf or just how to make a fabric scarf just by checking out these awesome patterns. And of course, free patterns our the fave here at FaveCrafts so enjoy!

Link Love: How To Make a DIY Globe

Sometimes you come across a craft idea that literally makes you exclaim, “WHERE HAVE YOU BEEN ALL MY LIFE?!” and this was one those times. As soon as I saw that crafters were creatively upcycling old, vintage, or even damaged globes – I was hooked. The DIY Globe may not be a brand new craft idea, but there are certainly fantastic ways to create your own. I look up a bunch of ideas and just had to hare my favorites!

The best part about the tutorials below is that they are all free. I kept getting frustrated when I’d find a DIY globe that was just a photo and not a tutorial. So I saved you the hassle and found only globes with free tutorials. I love the wide variety of styles that I found and how each globe seems to have its own personality. It’s as if each globe is a blank canvas and you get to make it your own. I won’t get too philosophical on you, but it’s very much like life. The world is what you make of it, right?

Upcycling these globes really puts a nice spin on “Earth” Day (April 22!). I love that we are putting our creativity to good use and keeping old globes out of dumpsters and landfills. Plus, you get to showcase your love for the earth and traveling by putting one of these on display in your living room. DIY home decor is all about finding those few unique objects that will really make your space complete. I fully believe that one of these DIY globes will complete your room and make it really special.

7 Lucky Horseshoe Crafts

You don’t have to have a western themed home to embrace the horseshoe. Horseshoes are now almost a staple in modern and rustic decor. There are some really talented Etsy sellers that have mastered the art of crafting with horseshoes and I envy them most days! I only have horseshoes from my horseback riding days and finding them at the barn. I also have some vintage horseshoes from my grandfather when he worked on a farm in Wisconsin as a boy. I treasure those horseshoes and I don’t think i could alter them in any way. However, I do plan to look for some horseshoes at antique shops this summer – and you can too!

There is a debate as to which way horseshoes are to be hung in a home. Some say that hanging them with the open side upwards keeps all the good luck in the home. If the horseshoe is turned upside down, the luck will fall out, which will bring bad luck to the home. Others seem to say that turning the horseshoe upside down lets all of the luck pour out into the home. For me, an upside down horseshoe makes me cringe!

With St. Patrick’s Day coming up and my love of horseshoes and anything related to horses, I’ve gathered up 7 Lucky Horseshoe Crafts we can all try. Similar to the horseshoe debate, there is also the “lucky” debate between four leaf clovers and three leaf clovers. Growing up, I always knew that finding a four leaf clover was next to impossible – but after hours in a field at day camp, I finally found one. But if you’re Irish (and I am a little bit Irish), you know that the three leaf clover is the traditional symbol, the shamrock. People tend to get hot-headed over this difference for some reason. I promise you, no matter which way you hang your horseshoe or which clover you like best, there’s lots of good luck to spread around before St. Patrick’s Day!

Link Love: DIY Thank You Cards

When it comes to writing thank you notes, I am, admittedly, not the best at it. Right now i’m in the midst of writing thank you notes for my wedding gifts and according to the wedding gods somewhere, my notes are technically already “late.” Oh well, they are getting done…slowly, but surely. I thought I was doing so good when I finished 54 of them only to realize that I have about 50 more left to do.

However, the one thing that is enjoyable about this whole process is the fact that I’m writing on homemade thank you cards. My mother-in-law made me a set of envelopes, cards, and even a personalized return address stamp! Take note my friends – this was an EXCELLENT gift idea!

As soon as I ran out of her lovely custom cards, I set out to make my own versions of them since I loved them so much. You can do the same too! There is something so special about the DIY thank you. To me, it appears to be a matter of showing the receiver that you truly appreciated their gift to you – so much so that you hand-made a card to give back to them. This translates to the fact that you spent time on them. That alone makes the thank you note more meaningful and special.

I’ve already received so many compliments on my thank you notes. Imagine that – thanking me for a thank you note! While I do hope that what I said was meaningful inside the card, I have a feeling people were impressed with my creative thank you notes. They know how crafty and creative I can be, so this really is no surprise to me. 🙂

I set out to find some card ideas for you all to try and maybe even give a set of cards as a gift! These homemade card ideas range from rustic to modern and everything inbetween. Learn how to make cards with photos, scrap paper, and even a map! I’m in love with these DIY thank you cards and I hope you enjoy these handmade cards ideas too!

Link Love: Woodland Crafts

Today I set out on a mission to find woodland crafts that were not just for Christmas. I realized that I , and many of you, love the rustic and woodland look and I hate to limit these crafts to just winter (or even fall with Thanksgiving table decor).

So, I found these nine craft projects that fit the bill. These cute craft ideas are great for kids and adults depending on level of expertise. I first started searching for just animals, but I discovered that toadstools are now one of my favorite things. Plus, it gives some of these craft projects that warm “spring” feeling to them. Either way, all of these crafts are whimsical and woodland themed.

Some of these crafts can be considered nature crafts and use dried moss to give the final piece a truly woodland feel. I liked that many of these woodland craft projects were practical and not just for decoration. Practical crafts help justify the time spent on them, in many ways. It’s not always the case, but I tend to feel more accomplished when I create something that I will use all of the time while still being crafty.

I have a cottage up in the woods in Michigan and there’s something magical about just being in the woods. I’ve seen deer darting quietly in the trees. I’ve had birds wake me up in the morning. I’ve also had acorns roll down the roof followed by the pitter patter of chipmunk feet. And I’ve seen little toadstools pop up after a rainstorm. These crafts take me to my cottage in the woods and I sincerely hope they transport you to a woodland escape too!

Link Love: The DIY Dreamcatcher

Channel your inner bohemian because dreamcatchers are back. Or they never left. Either way, these whimsical and lovely pieces have taken the spotlight in home decor and now you can learn to make your own.

“What are dream catchers?” you ask? Well, according to Google, the dreamcatcher meaning is:

“a small hoop containing a horsehair mesh, or a similar construction of string or yarn, decorated with feathers and beads, believed to give its owner good dreams. Dreamcatchers were originally made by American Indians.”

When I was a kid, I always thought of dreamcatchers as catching the bad dreams. I suppose the would then be called “nightmare catchers” which doesn’t sound quite as happy. Oh well.  Today we’ve rounded up our fave diy dreamcatchers for your enjoyment. If you’ve ever wondered “How do you make a dreamcatcher?” and wanted to transform your room into a magical and dreamy land, these pictures of dream catchers will inspire you. Making a diy dream catcher doesn’t have to be difficult or time consuming. We found a variety of traditional and more modern dreamcatchers for you to try. Use yarn, twine, vintage doilies, thread, or anything you see fit to create the dreamcatcher of your dreams. I think I have some vintage doilies lying around that I think could use a new prupose in life. Plus, vintage doilies are always in antique shops just waiting for a new home. I know what I’m doing this summer in Michigan!

Part of what makes each dreamcatcher unique is the different feathers and beads you can use to complete the design. Learn how to make a simple dreamcatcher and keep dreaming my friends!

Link Love: DIY Antlers

It’s time for a somewhat unusual link love post, but unusual in the best way. Because, quite frankly, these craft projects are actually becoming more and more common and we don’t hate them. In fact, there are plenty of reasons crafting with antlers is actually quite amazing.

Some things to note before you send PETA after me.

  • Deer, and other antlered animals, shed their antlers naturally
  • Some, if not all, of the projects below can be made using fake antlers (plastic, plaster, etc) that you can probably find online somewhere
  • I don’t like hunting. I am not supporting killing deer in any way at all.

These antler projects are trending all over the place. I’ve seen antlers in home decor magazines and there are TONS of  painted antlers on Etsy that are simply gorgeous. These diy antler projects will inspire you to use this renewable resource in your home decor. I like to think of it as a “rustic meets modern” sort of project. We can all see the natural element in these antler craft ideas and by bringing nature indoors, we are admiring and bringing beauty in our homes. Appreciate the natural and abstract shape of antlers and embrace the uniqueness of each one. Plus, there are even diy faux antlers that you can try to make. Learn how to make antlers with paper mache or even clay and you’ll love the result. Painting deer antlers is just one way to make these natural pieces a little more urban and chic.  It’s time to make deer antlers a part of your home decor this year.
