It’s about that time again, eh? Let’s take a little peek at what was most popular on FaveCrafts during the month of May, including some new projects you might not have seen before. But first, refresh your memory by catching up on the Top 5 Crafts of April, and don’t miss the FaveCrafts Most Popular Craft Projects: May 2011, where you’ll also see what was HOT on AllFreeCrochet, AllFreeKnitting, and AllFreeSewing last month!
Do you recognize this one? This cozy crocheted baby blanket is a repeat offender–it made the cut last month as well! It slid from 3rd to 5th most popular project this month, but that’s still an amazing feat. If you haven’t checked out this pattern yet, what the heck are you waiting for? It is super soft and cozy, perfect for a baby shower gift…
Who doesn’t have a bunch of empty water bottles lying around? Relieve your guilt by recycling them into fun craft projects–we’ve got a whopping 14 in this collection! If you use reusable water bottles, you can still try these fun ideas by using other kinds of plastic bottles and bottle caps. You won’t believe some of the stuff you can make with bottles!
We added a bunch of new sewing patterns for girls’ dresses recently, and this was one of my favorites. It was one of your favorites in May too! I know what you’re thinking–this doesn’t look like it only takes 20 minutes to make. But the secret is in the pre-ruffled fabric. All that’s left for you to do is cut and sew.
I’m so glad that this project made it into the top 5 last month. Why? Because it’s mine! You may recall that I showed you how to make it during National Craft Month in March. The popularity of the petal skirt, which is both easy and thrifty, really shot up when I featured it in a newsletter in May. This skirt may not be for everyone, but it sure is fun to look at (and you really won’t believe how cheap it was!).
If there’s one thing I’ve learned this spring, it’s that you guys LOVE birdhouses! This collection features 11 of our favorites, some of which can be made with plastic bottles (your other favorite)!
Among the runners up were the Net Stitch Camisole, the White and Cream Ruffle Dress, and the Crochet Angel Shawl. Which was your favorite? Don’t forget to check out the full collection of May’s heavy hitters in FaveCrafts Most Popular Craft Projects: May 2011!
