One of my foster mothers had a pair of feather earrings she had made in her high school days out of loon feathers and they were gorgeous! I would beg her all the time to let me borrow them, I loved them so much! The Plumed Nest has shared this tutorial with us on making your very own pair so click here for the how-to.

Happy August, ya’ll!!! And to celebrate August I have brought you an adorable needle threader project. Hooray! Working with crochet cotton as much as I do it is sometimes necessary for me to thread small needles with the cotton thread for beading, giant embroidery, zombie and/or Frankenstein making or whatever I’m doing and this is the cutest thing ever! The cutest needle threader in the history of needle threaders! Click here for Wild Olive’s fun tutorial.

Hey, crafters! Sorry for the long delay in craft related posts, I’ve been a bit distracted as of late. However! I have here for you today a wonderful photo-tuto on how to clean and oil one’s sewing machine. Personally I have plans to get to my local fabric store in the near future for some sewing classes and highly recommend that any and all Denverites get their little derrieres to Fancy Tiger for some fun time in the sun time!
