gifts for crafters

1. Martha Stewart makes the best glitter that I’ve come across. It is super-fine and comes in so many pretty colors.

2. I finally bit the bullet and bought a Gingher rotary cutter. The blades are super sharp (and last) so you can cut multiple layers of fabric precisely and effectively.

3. My grandparents usually give me a box of assorted crafting/scrapbooking items for Christmas. I always love their selection and love that they spend the time picking out things that they think that I would like. These items shown are from Michaels.

4. I love wooden knitting needles. Clover’s bamboo needles are lightweight and smooth. I find that wood needles are easier for beginners because they aren’t as slippery as metal ones, so it is harder to accidentally drop stitches.

5. Washi tape is always fun, and it comes in such a vast selection. Mix and match a couple to make a cute gift.

6. My dad gave me a pattern for making Norwegian mittens and picked out some gorgeous 100% yarn to go with it. It was such a thoughtful gift, and every time I look at the mittens that I made, I think of him. // mitten photo source

7. Purl Soho always puts together such cute crafting kits. I love this Liberty Coin Purse kit.

8. I feel like you can never have enough embroidery floss. I love DMC‘s because their selection is great and it sews great.

9. Fabric can be tricky because you really have to know the recipient, but jelly rolls and fat quarter stacks are great. It allows you to have a good selection without giving yards and yards of something that they might not like. I am currently crushing on V and Co’s Color Me Happy.
