A word of caution before I start. DIYeverywhere.com uses sponsored ads some of which can contain some pictures that might be troubling to readers with more sensitive stomachs. The content of the blog overall is quite valuable however, I thought a word of warning might be in order.
My parents and grandparents were "DIYing" before DIY was cool. My grandparents lived through 2 great wars and the Great Depression. My parents, born in the mid-1930's, learned the value of thrift. They, in turn, passed it on to their daughters and we passed it on to our children. We think of it more like a treasure hunt than a way to brag on our "thriftiness". We love curated websites like DIYeverywhere.com. :)
DIYeverywhere has a landing page here if you click on a project on the landing page the site will automatically open up a new page upon which there is a search box. For instance I opened up a page on the "Crafts" index for a terracotta bird bath because it would make a nice feature for my yard. Then I used the search box in the top right hand corner to search for both crochet and knitting. Using a landing page like this helps all the readers find the latest content added to the website without having to search all over to find it. When searching for the words "crochet" or "knitting" (there are a lot of sewing projects too!) you'll find good collection of information, projects, how-to's, and projects to try. Today I am just going to give you the upshot and let you follow your muse :)
For crocheters there are a lot of compiled videos and patterns that run the gambit. Hopeful Honey, Tamara Kelly of Moogly blog, Sewrella, New Stitch A Day, Potter and Bloom, along with Craftsy, and Attic24 are all featured on this great curated site.
Here are some of my favorites in crochet:
Knitters will find plenty of great ideas, tips, tricks and projects to keep us busy. It's always fun to learn new things, especially if they don't require buying anything new.
I find DIYeverywhere a one stop, easy to navigate site for all things upcycled and DIY. Woodcrafts, holiday decorations, home decor, upcycling clothes, quilting, sewing, and other "life hacks". It was one of those little finds on the net you just have to share! I hope you enjoyed this shorter blog today... I wanted to have some time to open the windows and enjoy some of the fresh Springtime air.
