November Crafts: Get Cozy Quilting, Sewing, and Knitting


For once, you’re going to love dreary weather because November’s craft tutorials will have anyone excited to stay holed up indoors. Some of Creativebug’s best-known instructors are sharing classes that will turn you into a knitting, upholstering, T-shirt-making machine.

Kaffe Fasset, master of all things textile, and Liza Lucy, master quilter, share a color-saturated patchwork quilt that is at once beginner-friendly and exquisite when finished. In our opinion, cold weather is just about the perfect reason to start a quilting project.

Cal Patch shares a simple How To for the most basic of garments: the T-shirt. Hello, new wardrobe.

Amanda Brown finally gives you an excuse to buy a staple gun with her upholstered headboard tutorial. That’s right: Upholstered. Headboard. Get your bedroom ready for serious comfort.

You’ll also meet Brandon Mably — the most dashing knitter we’ve had the pleasure to meet — and learn how to work with color. Your next sweater will be like a hug from a rainbow. Yes, we’re that excited.

Now, you’ll have to excuse us. The staple gun is calling.
