Handmade in Hollywood

My good friend Vickie Howell has a clever little weekly post on her blog called Movie Mondays. Each Monday she blogs cute knitwear from various movies, she even gives pattern recommendations so you can stitch your own version. I gotta say I thought this was a pretty brilliant idea on her part. Since Vickie has knitwear covered I thought it was my civic duty to bring you all the other crafts. Now I’m not promising something weekly, but from time to time I do spot a craft on the boob tube too good not to point out. Remember when I brought you crafting with the tools from Tool Academy? Think something along those lines.

Anyone else addicted to Big Love? Craft savvy fans that tuned into Sunday’s premiere no doubt spotted the craftstravaganza happening in the opening scene at Juniper Creek. Roman’s wives apparently like to keep themselves busy crafty style. Idle hands are the devil’s playthings after all. Oh and did you hear Ginnifer Goodwin (AKA Margene) is a fan of Sublime Stitching?
