A Super Special Craftastic Monday Link Party!

Ready for a blockbuster week?  I sure am.  Today is my birthday so it's started my week with a big smile.  I'm getting some sweet time with my loved ones and have a few crafty presents heading my way.  I've also got the very first Craftastic Blog of the Week feature to show, a super goodies giveaway, a new Crafty Gear 411 AND a fun free pattern & tutorial.  Loads of good things for everyone to celebrate!

Now let's get the party started and check out some links from last week -

I was in awe of how pretty and tasty this zucchini carpacchio from Stay at Home Foodie looks:

I just loved this strawberry bunting made by Stubbornly Crafty.  Check out her entire Strawberry Shortcake party for even more cuteness.  

These felt berry placecard holders by I Do All My Own Stunts are simply adorable.  Can you tell I'm a big berry fan?

And for a fun & different look, try this twisty bubble skirt tutorial from Emmylou Bee Do:

I also feature these projects and more party favorites on the Sew Can Do's Craftastic Picks board on Pinterest.  Follow me there to see more great projects and if yours is one of them!

And now for the Craftastic Blog of the Week:


Libby, a mom of 4 in the UK, shares her amazing sewing & knitting creations at her blog, Truly Myrtle.  She has some great tutorials and inspirational ideas for making sweet things for ladies and children.  Last week she shared this adorable top made from some men's dress shirts:
