This basket from Handmade by Eva Rose is fabulous with its outer pocket. It's exactly what I need next to my couch for my crochet project of the moment.

Finally one lucky nephew received an amazing dinosaur world handmade in felt by Sawyer Ford Driving By. The Peanut would love this. Totally worth all the time and energy I'm sure it took.

I love a good Link Party. Perusing link parties is how I found most of the sewing-bloggers I now follow, led me to learn sewing tips and tricks I never would have discovered otherwise, and first introduced me to the world of self-published sewing patterns. My favorite parties are inevitably the ones populated by lots of sewing, or knitting, or cross-stitch, or crochet; but those links can be hard to find through all the food and decor and blogging tips these days. So rather than endlessly search the interwebs for those rare link parties full of fabric and yarn and embroidery floss, I thought I'd bring it to my little corner of the web. And now it's time to link up!


GUIDELINES:


Keep to the medium of fiber.

Basically anything with fabric, thread, floss, or yarn is welcome—sewing of all kinds (sew), cross-stitch & embroidery (needle), knitting (stitch), crochet (hook).

Showcase your own work.

Please no link parties, giveaways, or advertisements.

Upload up to three links per week.

You can also link-up images from Flickr and Pinterest (as long as it's your own uploaded work); so even if you don't have a blog of your own, you can still inspire others and get feedback by sharing your work with us here. But please avoid repetition from week to week, or even within the same week.



That's it! Cake walk. If you see something you like, be polite and let the creator know with comments on their blog. Now let's get started...

You should really see all that goes into each project!
From my model preferring to dance free than pose for pics, to my stress every time I find myself in the button aisle. Daily updates on Instagram (and Flickr) of works-in-progress will give you that behind the scenes view you’re looking for, and sneak peeks of First Tuesday Tutorials, too.

  1. Thank so much for featuring my basket! I would love to know what size basket would be ideal for knitters and what kind of pockets they would prefer. Look forward to hearing your suggestions!

    1. It's a great basket! You ask a good question. I think it depends on the project. I have a round basket that I crocheted that is approximately 11" across and sometimes it's too large and sometimes it's too small. What I love about your basket is that I could put my hooks, scissors, and other tools in that outside pocket. I keep losing mine in the bottom of the basket under all the yarn.
