The Ultimate Walking Vest



If you lust over the handmade goods on Etsy but can't justify the custom prices, here's a great site to check out: You Can Make This! YCMTis a crafter's dream. They have downloadable patterns and e-book tutorials that will teach you to make just about anything you can think of. Prices range from about $5-$30. They've even added video instructions.



I love boutique-y sets with tons of appliques and once I read through the e-book How to Applique the Easy Way, I am convinced that even I couldn't mess this project up! Now, if I could only drag myself to the craft store to buy some interfacing, I think I could really make something cute. Thankfully, How to Applique the Easy Way also provides iron-on instructions, in case you're sewing-impaired. Like me.




To enter and win a craft project e-book or pattern from You Can Make This!, please comment on this post and let me know which one you would choose.


Entries will be accepted through June 26th and I'll pick the winner using Random.org. US readers are eligible. Only one entry/comment per person, please.


Make sure you leave an email address in your comment or that you have one accessible on your blog so you can be contacted if you win! Or, you may choose to check for your nickname at Prizey.Fetch, a new site that compiles winners in one convenient place:
