Some Crafty Projects I Want to Try

by Wendy Copley on June 9, 2010

For the last couple of days, my blog reader has been overflowing with some awesome craft and cooking projects I want to try.

Pie in a Jar — I’m completely smitten with the idea of pie in a jar. I love to bake, but having a whole pie around rarely works out well for me. Either I eat too much pie, or I practice excellent self-control and throw half a pie away. Either way, I end up feeling guilty. This recipe solves that problem. Also — CUTE!

Reversible Bucket Hat — I haven’t seen very many Betz White projects I don’t love but this one makes me want to drag out my sewing machine and my huge box of fabric right this second. I’m a sucker for a bucket hat.

Fabric Backed Dry Erase Board — Another easy way to use some of my fabric stash. Cute and functional!

Buckle Clipping Toy — I think Augie would be in heaven if I made him one of these! He loves anything mechanical or gadget-y and this is something that could keep him occupied for hours, especially if I added a couple of zippers to the mix.

Elsie Marley’s Boy Belt Tutorial — Have I mentioned how much I love the Elsie Marley blog before? Oh, I really do! Something about Meg’s aesthetic makes me swoon and I want to try practically every tutorial she posts. One I’ve been really wanting to knock out are these cool belts for boys. I even have all the materials — I just need to drag out my sewing machine and find some kid-free time to pull them together.

What projects have you been dying to try?
