The Giveaway to “DIY” For + Candy Striped Texting Gloves

15-new-diy-crafts-header

This month we’re celebrating 15 New DIY Crafts from some fantastic companies. Each day we will be featuring one of these projects along with a giveaway to help you craft your heart out.

Candy Striped Texting Gloves

These Candy Striped Texting Gloves may look like your average pair of winter gloves, but they truly are the most impressive crochet pattern of the 21st century. This particular crochet pattern includes a special filament (Boye SensaThread conductive filament) in the fingertips, which will allow you to use these gloves while using your favorite touch-sensitive device. Instructions are included that teach you how to crochet this filament right into the gloves, or stitch it on after you’ve crocheted them.

The Best Blogger Crafts: Seussian Flower Bouquet

the-best-blogger-crafts-banner

This month we’re celebrating our bloggers and their creativity. In January 2014 at CHA, bloggers gathered at our CHA Networking Event to meet companies and to work more with us here FaveCrafts. After getting a bunch of crafty swag from the event, they set out to make projects out of the materials they were given. We’re featuring these projects all month with giveaways so you can make your own versions of their wonderful crafts.

Seussian Flower Bouquet

 

Seussian Flower BouquetMake a whimsical bouquet worthy of a children’s book when you follow this Seussian Flower Bouquet tutorial. This project is broken down into 12 separate flowers, so you can make one of each or a whole bunch of your favorite design. Each of these Dr. Seuss craft ideas is an exercise in imagination, which means that no craft supply is off limits. Ribbons, sequins, beads, and other embellishments make this bouquet totally unforgettable. Best of all, it stays in bloom all year.
