The Craftastic Monday Link Party Is On!

Welcome to a new Craftastic Monday Link Party!  This week I've got a fantastic assortment of features - everything from DIY fashions to garden fountains.  I can't wait to see what you've got to share and stay tuned for some special goodies to come later this week;)

Last week I shared my tutorial for making DIY Designer Pillows (the cheap & easy way) and my review of a cool sewing tool, My Own Fringemaker, that helped give them high-end style:

I also showed how to make this Fun Fairy-Style Fringe Skirt using ribbon:

It's simple & fast to make and can be used for all sorts of things like perking up an outfit, dance class, costumes and playing dress-up and, most importantly, twirling:

And now it's time to announce the winners of the Giveaway for TWO winners' choice of any 3 Seamingly Smitten Patterns.  

Congratulations Jessica & Glenda, and a big thanks to Jenny at Seamingly Smitten for generously providing these pattern prizes.

Make a relaxing bubble fountain with this handy how-to from Scattered Thoughts of A Crafty Mom:

I've now got these homemade Biscoff cookies from Kleinworth & Co on my must-make list:

Whip out the peeler beads and make some fun pineapple key chains with this tutorial from Five Little Chefs: 

I loved the look of this dress Peaches and Bee made for summer - the fabric is fab too!

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!!

  9. Hi Cheryl: I was catching up on my email and was going to the linky party of May 17th. I was scrolling down to it and saw my name as one of the winners in the Seamingly Smitten pattern giveaway. I'm so exited! I never expected to win! I enter giveaways all the time and never win anything. You must be my lucky charm! Just one question though, how do I get the patterns that I want? Thank you so much for the giveaway and the chance to win! God bless you & your family.

    p.s. I posted this once and lost it. I hope it don't show up twice.

    1. Hi Glenda, I need your email address - I tried messaging you through FB (since you hadn't left an email on your entries), but never heard back. Send me an email to with your 3 pattern choices and I can have Jenny fulfill it. Please send it asap. Thanks!


Getting your comments brightens my day. I'd love if you left one:)
