What Craftster Means To Me
To me Craftster is an amazing community of positive, creative and above all inspiring individuals!!
With all the nonsense on the internet today and the amount of negativity associated with it all, it is SO refreshing to be able to come to this little corner of the interwebs that is so uplifting, enthusiastic, motivational and encouraging every day!
One of my favorite things about Craftster that really adds to the "community" part of it for me is swapping! So many creative ideas and minds working on similar projects all around the world and sharing their handmade goods with each, it's so wonderful!
I just participated in the One Fab Zippered Pouch swap and made this little goodie for my partner...
Front of the finished pouch.
This is a side shot to show the puffiness of the octopus. I stuck a little bit of stuffing behind him to add some depth.
Back of the finished pouch.
And the inside I used a different fabric that kept up with the Octopus theme
Here is an in progress shot I took while embroidering the octopus on. (I personally love WIP pictures of all the different methods and processes of creating.)
Something I also love about Craftster is how helpful everyone is. I used this tutorial to sew in the zipper for the pouch.http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=408626.0#axzz2bNrNk6Fa
I've been on Craftster for just over 6 years now and loving every minute of it!
Happy 10 years!!
