Handmade Monday #87

Handmade Monday craft link up

Welcome to Handmade Monday 87, our weekly craft link up where creative bloggers  share what they've been up to. It's a great place to find some new inspiration and maybe a handy tip or two. Grab a cuppa and stop for a while, share what you've been up to (old stuff is fine too) and visit some of your crafting friends.

Up to now Handmade Monday has been opening at 5pm (UK time) and running until 5pm on a Wednesday (just to make sure we are still open when it's Monday anywhere in the world!) A couple have people have mentioned that they don't always make it in time so I'm going to try leaving it open a little longer for a while, see how we get on. So the link up will be open until Saturday eve instead. We can always change back if that doesn't work for everyone, let me know if you have any thoughts.

It's been back to work for me this week, lots of post holiday laundry and catching up on things too! I had some happy post to come home to, the July craft subscription box from Makerly Crafts. It contained everything I need to try punch needle embroidery, something I've never attempted before. I'll be sharing later in the week about how I got on.

Let's have the features from last week's Handmade Monday. Can I just say this was another tough week to pick just a few features, sooo many fun projects and brilliant ideas. You guys are just amazing, I could have picked 10 features easily!! If I love your project but don't feature it here I try to at least share it on FB or Twitter :-D

Maria Jose has made the prettiest pretty crocheted clutch bag, the tassel, the colour, the lining, the flower - it's all just so pretty! 

It's all about the crochet bags this week! Marjan from Atelier Marie-Lucienne has made this stunner! It's no secret that I LOVE bright things so this is RIGHT up my street. I think it would go nicely with my Granny Square Scarf.

I love upcycling ideas, when something is saved from the rubbish bin and given a new life, so I love the ideas shared by Lisa from Fresh Vintage by Lisa S . She picked up this bag of old jewellery bits from her local thrift store and made all sorts of lovelies with them.

Congratulations to you all. there is a "YAY I was featured" button for your blog over here if you want to add one to your blog :-)


Did you know we have group pinterest board for Handmade Monday?  I try to pin all the ideas but don't always have time to get to you all. You can join us if you are a blogger who links up here at Handmade Monday regularly (or even occasionally!) and then pin your projects directly to the board yourself.  

Handmade Monday is all about building a crafting community, (it's always better together) so please do take a moment to visit some of the other projects linked up this week. Share some of your favourites on your social media maybe and leave a nice comment or two.

 Let's support one another  ^_^

The rules for Handmade Monday are very simple:

  • Did you make it? Yes - then hooray, we'd love to see it

  • Add the link to a specific post, not your main blog url

  • You can link up to 3 posts each week but try to make sure it's not stuff you've shared here before

  • Mingle - visit some other links - comment - share

If you are not sure of anything more details can be found here
