Craft it Forward in 2014

Christmas reminds us all that handcrafted gifts are often the most sentimental and endearing.
This season, I've done a great job avoiding the computer, in favor of baking and sewing! I don't know about you, but I am still in Holiday Mode and plan to do a bit more of each today!
Overall though, I didn't make many Christmas gifts this year...
And now I hope to redeem myself:-) 
I will sew gifts for the first FIVE readers who would like to participate with Craft it Forward in 2014!
Here is how I got involved last spring:
I signed up to Craft it Forward with Amy at Crafty Shenanigans . I love following Amy, she works on a nice mix of stylish quilts, and somehow she manages to finish an on-going flow of smaller projects as well: bags, pillows, swap items, etc...  One of my favorites this year is her Wonkyville project, a quilt she is compiling of house and tree blocks - all of them made and collected from quilter's around the globe. Such a great idea! Anyway, I was thrilled with the prospect of sompin artsy from Amy, and she did not disappoint! Last week, this kitchy tea towel arrived via Royal Air Mail:-)
If you would like to participate in Craft it Forward in 2014, never-fear, you are given nine months to make the five gifts! Here is how it works:

1. Leave a comment! If you wish, you can include your favorite fabric type or color. Batiks, florals, brights, vintage, warm, cool.... or perhaps whether you know a cat who enjoys catnip...
2. I will email-reply, and request your address via email only.
3. Within the next nine months, you will receive a handmade goodie from me.
4. At that time, you publish a similar post and start Crafting it Forward!!


  1. I cant believe no one has answered yet so I will. I love giving. Each Christmas me and my family give away 12 days of Christmas to 3 family's. So I love the giving aspect of this.

  2. Oh Forgot to say what I liked. Batiks are a favorite of mine.

  3. Oh, how fun! Count me in. I love smaller scale print fabrics and those that 'read' as solids. My favorite colors are blue and green. Pretty much anything goes, though.

  4. Oh, this sounds like fun! Sign me up too please. I love gingham and country flannels, and anything farm related.

  5. I'd love to be considered!

    My (most recent) blogging adventure is just starting, and it would be fun to have a Craft It Forward giveaway to look forward to doing!
