on November 12 | in Handmade Holidays | by | with 307 Comments

Do you ever see really expensive, fun jewelry out in shops and think, “I could make that!”? Today we show you how! Create something special for yourself or others this holiday season… If you don’t have time to make it this year we also have a couple of great shop features today!

Make It

spacer Jersey Fabric Bracelet
These pretty Jersey Fabric Bracelets from Vanessa at V & Co. can be made with old t-shirts or your favorite new knit. Vanessa writes, “When purchasing fabric for this project (if you aren’t using an old t-shirt) make sure you buy knit fabric that has some spandex in it, this will make sure your raw edges won’t fray. The higher the spandex % the less fraying will occur. Also please excuse the potty talk in the back ground, you just got a snippet of the REAL part of my life and family.”
spacer Leather Bow Cuff Bracelet
Clemence from Oh the Lovely Things shows you how to create a statement with these easy-to-make Leather Bow Cuff Bracelets.
spacer Frame to Jewelry Holder
This Frame to Jewelry Holder tutorial from Angel at TaDa! Creations uses an IKEA frame, but any frame will work.

Modern Log Cabin Quilting: 25 Simple Quilts and Patchwork Projects (US Winners Only)

Author: Susan Beal
Publisher: Potter Craft

If you think quilting is too difficult or too complicated, you’re not alone. Cutting hundreds of pieces and joining angled seams can be tough work! But log cabin quilting, an artful and simple way to piece strips of fabric around a central square, is different. From the intuitive construction through the straight-line stitching, this style of quilting is simple as can be.

In Modern Log Cabin Quilting, Susan Beal outlines the entire process from start to finish, including basic quilting how-to as well as extensive design, fabric, and embellishment information. Since all log cabin designs follow the same formula, once you master straight lines and right angles, any of the 25 projects in this book are possible. From stash-friendly designs like the Charming Camera Case to more ambitious undertakings like the Vintage Linens Quilt, there’s sure to be a project that will get you into (or bring you back to) quilting!
