January DIY Challenge Results!

We are so excited to share the great submissions we received this month for our DIY Challenge! The theme for this month was ‘Yarn’ and we had so much fun seeing everyone’s projects. As promised we are awarding our three favorite projects and showcasing everyone’s submissions. Great job everyone!

DIY Challenge Award: The Most Snuggly

We just love this knitted blanket made by Sheila Zachariae of Creative Design. Sheila first learned to knit from her mother as a teenager growing up in the 1970’s. Fast forward to 2004 and she began selling her knitted scarves at a local art gallery. Now she sells her handmade wares and knitting patterns on Etsy, Ravelry and Patternfish.

I can most often be found in “my chair” surrounded by a pile of yarn, fabric, more yarn, needles, another pile of yarn, patterns, more fabric…etc. I love designing, picking out yarn colors and seeing it all come together in fabric. Baby blankets and women’s accessories are my favorite projects. – Sheila

DIY Challenge Award: The Most Battable

We are suckers for handmade pompoms! There are so many fun ways to make and use them, though our favorite way is to gift them to our favorite felines. These two-color pink pompoms made by Sarah White would make our kitties go nuts! Sarah is an avid crafter, author and blogger behind Our Daily Craft. Be sure to check out Sarah’s blog for more crafty ideas and tutorials.
