Crafting

Post by Gail Allen » Fri Jan 25, 2019 4:18 pm

I love creating things; back in the day it used to be bead-embroidery and drawing, now I'm doing cross stitch, knitting and needle-binding much more.
I've knitted a scarf, which is probably the most impressive thing I've knitted and I've made hats and gloves with needle-binding and I am trying to make socks at the moment.

And that made me wonder, what things do my fellow HOLers like to make? Both what kind of craft, but also what things have you made with that craft? I am very curious to hear about it!

I love making calligraphy and lettering cards. I got into that this summer and I have been working on my skills ever since. It's very satisfying and calming and I definitely suggest peeps try it.

Does anyone else love to calligraphy?

I so wish I could do calligraphy Shadow! My handwriting by itself is awful enough but my partner's sister is an amazing calligraphist, I think it can look amazing! I've never seen kits though to be fair, maybe I could have a go.

Gail - I love crochet, my friends all crochet and what they make is amazing. My biggest issue is...I can't do it at all! I am the same with knitting, I would love to try embroidery though but I feel that if I cant do the rest maybe I'm just not the crafty type :lol: I have heard socks are one of the hardest things to make!

I live to craft! Not that I’m very good at it.
Is anybody good at dollhouse design, mini models, general crafts, or good with popsicle sticks? I am looking to make a project with Hogwarts castle involved. If you are interested in helping me(please!) just send me an HOL message(Adaleine Shuster).
Thank you so much,

I used to absolutely love building stuff from wood! I would create little angle figures and sell them on markets or give them to people as gifts. (Sometimes I would even buy functional stuff, like shelves with my dad)
Right now I'm more into art though. I mostly do fanart, but I've been trying to think of something original. I've been wanting to make a comic for ages.

I love to make just about anything. I'm an artist by trade, but that's mostly boring graphics. I really like making traditional art (ink and painting), but I have now really gotten into loom knitting. I also have made wands and staffs out of branches, lots of bead work projects, some work with clay figures, and i really love making garden art. I don't generally have one focus, my home looks a bit like a crafts store exploded. So I just gather up items that I have laying around and make things out of them. I'm currently working on some glass tree ornaments.
