February Little Miss Crafty Pants Challenge!

on February 2, 2013

It looks like we got a pretty good turnout for the Little Miss Craftypants Challenge :o) All of the projects look so great, and some of them look intimidating–I’m seriously impressed at the talent we have in this community. I’m so excited to see all of your finished creations! Here are the projects that will be made:

First up is Sexy Sadie from The Sub-fertile Slut:

Maryland Love // Reclaimed Wood Nail and String Art Tribute to The Old Line State

She got her project idea off of Pinterest, and here is what she has to say about it:
“I chose this project as a housewarming gift for my best lady in the whole world. She just moved into her own apartment and is living alone for the first time. She told me she desperately needs things to hang on the wall. I decided to make this nail/string state art project since she has moved around a lot. I’ll be making one of Maryland, one of Arizona, and one of Washington–all these states she has lived in. Hope she loves them!”


Next is Arwen from MRKH Musings:


Here’s what she had to say about her project: “I have started to make this for my godson’s belated Christmas present! This will be the most complicated crochet project I will have ever done and I’m ready to improve!”


Next is April from R. Sativus:


Here is what she has to say about her project: “I’ve decided to make a stuffed turtle. I found this fabric at goodwill, and I’ll use it for his shell. I have some plain green for head, feet, and tail. I’m going to design the pattern myself, so no links to share for this one. I’ve always been an artist who loved crafty stuff, but I just started machine sewing this past Christmas. I love it!!”


Next is Hoping on Hope:

Iris Afghan

She got her pattern from The Daily Knitter, and here’s what she has to say about it: “I have selected yarn in the shade of golden orange and require a thick 2 ply yarn. Lets see how it turns out to be. I think it will add a nice pop of color to my living room.”


Finally, here is my project:

I got the pattern here. I’ve been knitting for awhile, and I’ve finally started branching out into harder projects. Last month I made a cute cardigan that was very basic, and I wanted to try something a little harder this month. I may be biting off more than I can chew, but I ‘m going to give it my best effort! I picked out a very soft green yarn that’s really pretty, so as long as I don’t screw up the knitting, it should be a very nice sweater.

Just as a reminder, email me a picture of your completed projects by February 25, but if it doesn’t look like we will be ready by then, we can adjust it. Along with your picture, let us know how it went including any disasters, do-overs, or happy accidents :o)

Think this looks like a lot of fun and don’t want to miss out? Email me a picture of a crafty project you want to complete along with a link if applicable and a short description in the next couple of days and I’ll add you in!

Also, it seems like most everyone was interested in making this a challenge so anyone who completes a project every month for three months will get a prize. The best part? The prize will be something handmade by another blogger who is participating. It will be a prize exchange! Wahoo!

    I was thinking of throwing in my current project, but I don’t think I will finish it for months and months. I may even have to set it aside and work on my baby blanket before returning to it. I’m knitting a scarf for my mum. Good luck on the sweater!!

    • You are welcome to jump in whenever you like! Maybe when you start on your baby blanket, you can participate with that :-) Is it the chevron blanket you posted a while back? It’s super cute.
