Creative Craft Challenge: The Challenge You Missed

Journal Entry: Fri Dec 19, 2014, 11:36 PM

Weekly update

Hello everyone! (And happy Hanukkah!) No new submissions this week, but if you're planning on participating and haven't had a chance to finish up your piece or submit it to the favorites gallery, you've still got about a week and a half left. Also, next week's update might be a bit late on account of it being the day after Christmas- but I can't wait to see what fabulous submissions we get! (Also, merry Christmas in advance!)

Previous updates

I have yet another beautiful submission to show you all, this time a lovely miniature. Check it out:

Although this challenge has been shorter than usual, there's still plenty of time to participate if you're interested, and lots of really interesting crafts to try out. (See the full list here!) See you all next week!

Hello everyone! We have already got one submission for this week's challenge- check out this delightfully creepy dream catcher:

See you all next week!

Welcome to this month's Creative Craft Challenge!

The Creative Craft Challenge is a monthly feature where we introduce our members to different crafts. Every month I’ll give you a little background on a craft that you might not have heard of and show you a few great tutorials to encourage you to give it a try and show us your work.

So join me every month and put your skills and creativity to the test with lessons and tutorials, examples, and a place to show off your work. Your submissions will be featured in our favorites gallery and in this very blog!

Remember, the aim of the challenge is to introduce you to crafts that you might not have heard about or tried before. They won't require any expensive materials or years of training and expertise to complete. The idea is to challenge you to go out of your usual field of work and try something new!

This challenge is NOT a contest or a display of professional work, but a fun opportunity to broaden your crafting horizons. NO prizes are involved and everyone will be featured!

To clear up a question a few people have asked: The ArtisanCraft gallery folders and favorite folders are not linked- you can submit the same piece to both the gallery and the favorites if you like, no problem. Also, the two deviations per month limit does not apply to favorites folders, so please feel free to add as many submissions as you would like.

Member of the Month

At the end of every month one participant will be chosen as ArtisanCraft's Member of the Month and will be featured on our profile page for the entire next month. Since I've been gone for a while, our next Member of the Month will be announced in January.

The Challenge You Missed

At the end of every year we give you a chance to try out one of our previous challenges! Maybe you weren't a member of the group back when we did a cool challenge, or maybe you just didn't have time to participate. Whatever the case may be, now's your opportunity! So go check out our old Challenges, and give one a try!

Hello, everyone!
Let's make it short and sweet: are there any good plushie tutorials out there? Like, the basics, from pattern to stuffing. Anything, really.

Longer story: I really want to make a little doll of Fiona the Human (Adventure Time genderbent) for my friend. I'm not sure what I want the size to be - I was originally thinking hand-sized, but if bigger is easier? then I'm all for it!

Thank you for reading! :dummy:

You have "join" button on the left side of our main page, but you probably won't see it if you are entering via phone so make sure you enter via computer.
