Bronwyn’s Handmade Christmas August 2017: Yarn Ball Ornaments

We only have four months until the big day. Do you have your handmade gift ideas lined up? Today’s craft is a quick and easy one: yarn ball ornaments. We all know and love the look of the iconic yarn ball: you know, the kittens-with-mittens type of yarn ball. Well, now we can share our love…


Bronwyn’s Handmade Christmas in July 2017: Etched Glass Casserole Dishes

I can’t tell you how excited I am about this month’s project–etched glass baking dishes. I have wanted to make these for years, and I’m thrilled with how mine turned out! If you’ve ever left your casserole dish at a potluck, you know that getting it back may or may not happen. Even if you do…


Bronwyn’s Handmade Christmas 2017: Pin Loom Coasters & Bookmarks

Can you believe I’m thinking about Christmas already? It’s only six months away, folks! What’s that mean for us? It’s time for Bronwyn’s Handmade Christmas, of course! As I was organizing the area around my end of the couch (a.k.a. my knitting nest), I came across my little Weave-It pin loom. Now, I’ll admit that…


Bronwyn’s Handmade Christmas November 2016: For the Home

I have to admit that I don’t decorate much for Christmas, or throughout the year, for that matter. I put up a tree and hang a wreath on the door, but that’s about it. A few years ago, I started collecting the LEGO Winter Village sets (Some people collect ceramic houses, I do LEGO.), but…


Indie Designer Gift-A-Long 2016

With Christmas just over a month away, it’s time for all you knitters and crocheters to kick your crafting into high gear if you’re planning to make hand-stitched gifts. If you’re still looking for just the right pattern, now is a great time to support independent designers like me. It takes a lot of time…


Bronwyn’s Handmade Christmas October 2016: Busy Bags for Kids

How about something for the kids this month? Choosing from a wish list on Amazon is awfully easy, so I’m certainly happy when that’s an option. Sometimes, though, I like to give a small handmade gift, as well, to show that I’ve put a little more thought into the gift. When my son was a…


Bronwyn’s Handmade Christmas: September 2016

Time is flying! I still haven’t settled on my handmade gift for everyone this year. I just keep collecting ideas and dabbling, but nothing has lit my fire yet. It could be that it’s hard to feel the pressure of Christmas when it’s still 85 degrees, but now that fall is officially here, it’s time…


Bronwyn’s Handmade Christmas August 2016: Nutella Powder

Every year, I tend to choose one unique gift to make and give the same thing to everyone. Last year, I finally got around to trying something I’d seen on Pinterest (this post) a few years ago— Nutella Powder. It was a big hit with my family and friends, so I thought I’d share it…


Bronwyn’s Handmade Christmas in July: Luggage Tags

For this month’s handmade Christmas project, I was inspired by my summer vacation. What? I know. I know. Bear with me. Last week, my family got back from an 11-day road trip. We’re calling it Dino Drive 2016. (Our first one was in 2013.) My son is 8 and has loved dinosaurs since he was…


Bronwyn’s Handmade Christmas 2016: 6 Months Away!

It’s hard to believe that the year is half over and that Christmas is only 6 months from now. Holy cow! If you know me from my guest appearances on Knitting Pipeline podcast or follow the KP group on Ravelry, then you probably know that I love to give unique handmade gifts. I typically find…
