Fresh From Father's Day: It's The Craftastic Monday Link Party!

This week's Craftastic Featured Links

A very Happy Father's Day to all the Dads out there this Craftastic Monday!  I hope everyone had some special celebrations with the fathers in their lives.  We enjoyed a nice outing with mine and my husband finally got some time to relax and work on his current crafty project with the kids - a bat house!

I was also very grateful and happy to finally get some much-needed sewing time for me.  With a family funeral, hosting my sister's bridal shower, wrapping up our homeschool year, contractor's working on our house and a very nasty bout of poison ivy, I have had very little time for sewing the past few weeks and I have missed it terribly.  The good news is now that there is some time, sweet new sewing projects will be coming soon, as well as some new features, reviews and several fabulous fabric giveaways!!!

And it's also time to announce the winner of the giveaway for a $20 Gift Certificate to Southern Fabric:

Congratulations Stacy - have fun picking out some goodies and a big thank you to my lovely sponsor, Southern Fabric, for providing this prize!

Now let's see last week's Craftastic picks:

Check out the fabulous bird bath made from a plastic pipe & tray at Crafts A La Mode:

I LOVE the look of this moss garland from While Wearing Heels.  I want to throw a party just so I can have an excuse to make some!

Sugar Tart Crafts shared this great tutorial for making a pretty fondant rainbow (substitute modeling chocolate to make it vegetarian-friendly):

The Alm Project showed some beautiful silk ribbon embroidery.  This is on my crafts-to-try list:

Check out this fabulous reverse applique from Sew Simple Dress.  The how-to makes it easy too:

We're addicted to pretzel rolls over here, so this recipe from A Handful of Everything is a must-try:
