I've written before about Tracey Stewart's Moomah. Her online journal includes some sweet and easy crafts that definitely feel needed this weekend. (In other words, How soon is school starting, please? And how long will we lose power during this so-called hurricane?) They're perfect for someone—um, maybe me—who can't draw and has a hard time coming up with original ideas but likes to make things with her hands and is great at following instructions.
|Recycled fabric necklace: The mannequin is way creepy, |
but I like the idea of using scraps from outgrown clothes—
kind of like quilting for dummies.
|Dreamcatcher: Somehow hers don't look too crunchy.|
She also writes sweetly about talking her kids through bad dreams.
