Tomorrow is Hobbit Day! Craftster moderator Mistress Jennie is helping celebrate with this article full of fun Hobbit-related crafts!

“If more of us valued food and cheer and song above hoarded gold, it would be a merrier world.” So said J.R.R. Tolkien in a little book called the Hobbit, first published in 1937. Ever since his book was published, Tolkien’s epic tales about wee Hobbits have captured the imagination of of readers, and of course, of crafters. If you’re a fan of Tolkien’s work, why not honor Hobbit Day, September 22, by crafting something inspired by his tales?

Sometimes even the best of us needs a little push out our own front door. Sirya’s tiny Gandalf would be a great gift to encourage a friend.

In need of some awesome accessories? Sirelinde used jewelry wire to recreate Arwen’s beautiful Evenstar pendant from the LotR’s films.

If your walls need some interest, you could stitch up a map of Middle Earth, like this one by Wizards_Pupil.

BridgeKeeper crocheted a truly epic hat, inspired by the Tree of Gondor. This would be great for the fall & winter ahead.
Finally, if you’re itching to go off on your own adventure, you could stitch up a Fellowship Cloak like sairosaurus.

Thanks again to Mistress Jennie for spotlighting these projects, and for this delightful Hobbit Day article.
