A few weeks ago I gave away some pillow covers on the handmade giveaway from Sawyer Ford Home. They were cute and perfect. In passing the Etsy shop owner, Tracy, mentioned that she was starting a craft blog named Sawyer Ford Driving By.
Let’s just say that I remember the first few weeks of Clumsy Crafter and it was rough. I believe there was a post of funny things animals say (that has since been deleted on purpose) and just a mix of things that didn’t make sense. My pictures were horrible, my writing was worse and my first attempt at a tutorial was laughable.
So when I popped over to Tracy’s new blog, I was ready to see a new blog that maybe just doesn’t have it all together yet because it’s a learning experience.
Wow. I was wrong.
The first post I found was a tutorial for how to make leather bows.
That’s so cute I would wear it with pride while my husband ducks and hides. Honestly, I do see this as a project soon that my girls will love to help with. Plus it’s a great change from ribbon and use leather instead to make a hair bow.
Then there was a post on how to make zippered pouches and the details were stunning.
I would never have thought to scallop the edge with a bright zipper. I need one of these. I need both actually.
I might actually do this project soon using a variety of mason jar sizes to put on the bathroom counters for storage. Or you could paint them in beachy colors and use them on your summer mantle. I need to go buy more mason jars now.
So that’s my three favorite things but there’s more! You might like some of it too.
Hop over to Sawyer Ford Driving By and check it out.
If you’re thinking of starting a blog, don’t worry I have a post on that and there’s no talking animals on it. – How to Start a Blog by Clumsy Crafter.
