International craft month is coming to the end, new CHA released products continue to arrive in stores, and inspiration is springing up everywhere. From new classes to tutorials, special events to videos there was a lot to check out this week. All signs point to a fantastic year for papercrafting in 2012, so let’s dig into this week’s noteworthy stories:
Let’s begin with a tutorial that makes creating a stitched flower so easy – and in a way I never thought of doing. The always inspiring Rebecca Sower posted a very detailed and easy to follow tutorial on free-motion flower stitching. Sharing a lot of photos and helpful tips, I can now imagine creating my own flowers with some fabric scraps and a bit of time. Perhaps making these will become my new ‘while I watch TV’ project.
