Who knew dreamcatchers could look so fresh and modern – and dreamy! This wee beauty is the work of the very talented Lisa Tilse of The Red Thread, and she’s made an excellent step-by-step tutorial for Crafttuts+.
Lisa holds your hand through every step of the way, showing you how to hand-wrap the rings and attach the beads and feathers. It’s the perfect project for the weekend. Head over to Crafttuts+ now for the full tutorial.
Isn’t this the most adorable knitted kerchief you’ve seen? You can make it yourself with this excellent tutorial by Andi Satterlund of Untangling Knots for Tuts+.
The step-by-step tutorial has full photography and is perfect for knitters of all levels. In fact, if you’ve ever wanted to learn how to knit, you might like to follow the series of Knitting Fundamentals tutorials.
I love that Andi shows you how to style the kerchief for two completely different looks. Such a sweet vintage look, don’t you think?

Do you love making things with Hama (or Perler) beads? You might like to try this easy tutorial I created for Crafttuts+.
I was inspired by big, bold vintage florals, the kind you’d find on domestic bed linen from the ’60s and ’70s. What do you think?

Here’s a great project to make this weekend: a set of crocheted rainbow nesting baskets. The step-by-step tutorial by the rather brilliant Marinke of A Creative Being for Crafttuts+ is perfect for crochet beginners and you can use them to store all sorts of knick-knacks – or they’d make a fun tactile toy for babies.
