Inspire Us Thursday, August 14!

I wrote yesterday how Summer is kicking my newbie blogger butt. [sigh] Here comes the cut and paste: Welcome to Inspire Us Thursday! Here you'll find a group of links dedicated to projects in fiber: yarn, thread, fabric, and floss. Maybe you're a quilter who will be inspired to try crochet. Or a sewer of clothing drawn in by a cross-stitch. Maybe you'll be inspired to put down the knitting needles and dust of your sewing machine. Be sure to check out all the links, you may be surprised where you'll find your next inspiration.

Last week's most viewed link: Click through for a great tutorial on how to make this sweet Felt Needle Case by Sum of Their Stories.

Since Summer's time is limited (no school = more time with The Peanut + less time here), I will be featuring the most-viewed link each week until the fall. This way I can spend time viewing all the links myself, instead of racing through to find only a few that catch my eye.

If you've been featured today grab the "Proud Feature" button for your blog!

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, Pinterest, and Instagram (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! Easy, peasy, lemonade squeezy! If you see something you like, be polite and let the creator know with comments on their blog. And now it's your turn to link up!

You should really see all that goes into each project!
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. Well I must say I am very proud to pick up the proud feature button. What an honour! I feel a little bit like I've won a people's choice at the Television Awards or something, because it was most clicked link! I haven't prepared a speech or anything!
    Thank you so much, all joking aside, you have so many great projects linked up here I am so excited/honoured.

  2. Thank you for the party! Hope you get to enjoy the rest of the summer!

  3. I'm getting my but kicked too- no worries!! I don't comment much because I'm lazy but I read everything; and you're doing a great job :) thanks for hosting!
