This blog is for you. What kind of crafts do you want to see featured?

Decisions, Decision, Decision. I need all of your help. In deciding what types of crafts to post I need your input. What type of crafts do you want to see?

As many of you know I love to knit, crochet, and sew. However, I do many other types of crafting as well as some tole painting, polymer clay, beading, card making, etc. So I want to make a survey and find out what type of projects and product demos do you want to see?

Is there a particular pattern for a project you want to see demonstrated. A new item that you have seen but are unsure about purchasing? Your answers will help me in approaching manufactures to provide some items for demos and possibly for giveaways.  I will always give you my honest opinion on items.  Is it worth the money or not.  I hate wasting my hard earned cash on products that just don’t deliver.

I am also looking for crafty people who would like to write a guest blog post. Do you have a great idea or a post on your own blogs you would like to share (With complete credit to you of course and link back to your blog.) Then let me know so we can share it here.

Please write in the comments what type of items/crafts you want to learn. I would like to start to share technique posts for different crochet and knit stitches. Also, I want to start a new sewing series to teach people how to use a basic pattern and sewing machine. These are just some of the things I want to share. Would you prefer to see a series? These are all the things I want to hear from you.  I am new to the blogging game and so we are in this together.  This is YOUR blog.

I created this blog to be a community where we can share our love of crafting.   As a thank you for participating I will have a drawing and 3 winners will each win 1 crochet pattern of their choice from my Ravelry store.

    Hello Yolanda! I would like to see something maybe having to do with paper crafting and some more ideas on what to do with clay. I enjoyed your tutorial on how to make the beautiful clay handles for the crochet hooks and I have leftover clay so I was trying to think of what else I can use it for. As for the sewing series, I think that’s a great idea! Perhaps you could do a series on bags since they are easy and use basic sewing skills? You could try a handbag, tote or laptop bag and even something like a tablet or smartphone holder. Personally, I’d love to learn to make a lightly quilted holder for my phone (I am a novice at sewing so I really need to learn to use my machine better plus it’d be great to use up those little scraps of fabric one might have lying around and don’t know what to do with) and something like that would be awesome for a tablet as well. I can’t wait to see what you do in the future. God bless!

    I learned crochet in large part from YouTube and well…you! So now I’m all over learning how to knit which is really hard for me for some reason. I think if I used your vids to help my 9 and 12 year olds to crochet, I can certainly learn to knit with you! Oh, and crochet beading! That’s something I want to do but don’t know how. Thanks!! We love how close crochet has brought us as a family.

      Me too. I’d also like to see crochet beading.

      Basic sewing (hand and machine). Especially basic mending, maybe some basic tailoring. I wasn’t encouraged by my experience in middle school, but I’d be willing to try again.

    I. Have some crochet Christmas ornaments. That my mother crochet with while tread and put pearl beads on. They were made in two half’s and sewed together and then a balloon was blown up inside it. After she would put tacky glue on. Them and let them dry. After the balloon was bursted and white ribbon was. Added. Simple beautiful. I have read the pattern on her Leasurie Art book. However I am a beginner. If I mailed you a copy could you do a tutitorial on 1

    I would like some crochet patterns (YouTube) for spring and summer – things to wear that are delicate and cool. I especially would like some cute tops or cover-ups with three quarter sleeves or sleeves to the elbow. Can you show us how to add sleeves to items we already have? I don’t buy sleeveless dresses or blouses but would if I could add pretty, delicate sleeves. Thanks!

    I’d love to learn bead crochet. I love jewelry beading nd would like to get some patterns and instructions. Different door decorations, specific to either the season or holiday, (besides just wreaths) would also be appreciated.

    I have always wanted to tole painting….but it seems I never had time to go to learn…working and all…so if you could start slow, maybe we can learn…thank you for caring….

    Hello Ms. Yolanda, I absolutely love your crochet crafts but I would love for you to do a crochet craft cardigan or shirts for adults! I have tried many times to make a cardigan and our shorts and I end up getting frustrated and stopping as I am a visual learner! Thank you so much and sure hope you truly consider this! God bless and keep you!

    Well I’m a beginner crochet so any project that would be beginner friendly would help me out a lot, I’ve done a few projects but I have a lotion work to do to make my projects neat looking.

    More Crocheting

    Hi Yolanda, I would like to learn a few vintage patterns that can be used in paper projects. I like your idea of offering a guest blog spot to fellow crafters and reaching out to us for video ideas. I am looking forward to the fun posts and videos that result.

  20. Wendy May 24, 2015 at 2:20 pm #

    I’m just checking g if my response shows up as posted. I had commented that I would like some videos about vintage crochet items that can be used in paper crafts. My comment was waiting moderation. I had left a comment for your giveaway. I’m going to check to see if its there.

    Hola Yolanda me encantaría la lámpara por que con ella me alumbro para tejer ya sea en las mañanas o noches

  24. Connie Zehring May 25, 2015 at 3:52 pm #

    I would like to know how to adjust pattern sizes when the proportions of the pattern are different than the person – such as shoulders, bust, hips, etc.

    • Connie Zehring May 25, 2015 at 3:53 pm #

      I am referring to crochet in my comment regarding sizing of patterns. Sorry, I forgot to specify that.

    I would love to see how you made the pink crocheted dress on the left side of the photo. It looks like a beautiful dress for a baby girl to wear,

    That’s what I would love to see in your videos?
