June's First Craftastic Monday Link Party!

Can you believe it's already the start of June?  Time needs to slow down a little or I'm going to have to stop sleeping so I can keep up!  Between wrapping up our homeschool stuff, getting June's commitments sorted and taking care of must-do tasks at home, I'm feeling spread thin.  I've got lots in the works craft-wise, but finding the time to finish, photograph & blog about them is the big challenge.  This week may end up light on the blog so I can rock it for you the rest of the month;)

Last week I shared my result sewing the new Double Tier Tank Top Pattern and my sewing trick for connecting layers like this with hidden seams (this works great for doing linings too):

And today's the last day to enter my amazing fabric giveaway for This gorgeous Dashwood Studio fat quarter bundle + a $38 gift certificate to Plush Addict Fabric Emporium.  It's open worldwide and a comment at the giveaway post is all it takes to enter.  Click HERE to get your entry in:

How It Works:

Now let's see some Craftastic picks..

This week I went wild with features - there were so many good ideas from last week's party, I just had to show all my faves.  Sadie Seasongoods turned a vintage teapot into a unique hidden pincushion/sewing caddy:

Crafts A La Mode showed how to make this cute & easy terra cotta planter:

Naptime Creations showed this wonderful summer wardrobe she made for her new little girl - loads of great summer clothing sewing to inspire:

Little Miss Dextrous shared this tutorial for making DIY tree wall art with some wood & painter's tape:

Anne Marie's Haakblog created this cute free crochet cat pattern:

Crafty Lumberjacks made me laugh out loud with this cheeky matchbox:

Pint Sized Baker baked up these cute puff pastry snail cookies:

And Kiku Corner shared this tasty recipe for Nutella stuffed cookies:

If you're one of this week's features, be sure to grab my Featured On button over on my Buttons Page to share the good news.  

I also feature these projects on Sew Can Do's Craftastic Picks Pinterest board 
AND share each of them on Twitter too for even MORE exposure!

Ready to link up your crafty creations?

Party rules are simple:
  • As long as it's crafty, and made by you, it's Craftastic (no links to giveaways, shops, link parties or other people's work).  Add the link to your specific post (not the main page of your blog).  Product reviews, plagiarized or sponsored posts for random items will be immediately deleted.  
  • Grab my party button & put it on your post or blog somewhere.  Party pages are fine.  If you want the chance to be featured, this is key.  The button code can be found HERE.
  • Check out some of the other fabulous links and share some crafty comment love.  We all love getting comments!!
