Hello everyone!

In my newest mermaid bikini that I have added to my shop I used Crochet Scale Stitch . Well, I have found that a lot of people become fascinated with this stitch and was eager to learn how it is achieved.

I am a self taught crocheter by way of crochet books, but I have also found a lot of help with Youtube videos and I want to share one with you that will describe how to achieve the stitch... Read more
Hello Everyone,

Today I wanted to discuss a charity that I work with frequently called " Knitted Knockers ". This organization works to provide women who have undergone mastectomies with knitted prosthetics .

A mastectomy is the removal of one or both breasts, for those who don't know, and the knitted prosthetics work to take place of the breasts and are both comfortable and adjustable for... Read more
A mother is not a person to lean on, but a person to make leaning unnecessary.
– Dorothy Canfield Fisher

It’s the beginning of Spring and Mother’s Day is upon us once again.

How can we thank our mothers for everything they have done, and continue to do, for us? Moms make possible our very existence, they patch us up when we fall, make the best grilled cheese sandwiches. Taxi driver,... Read more
Hello Everyone!

I am a newcomer on iCraft, and am enjoying the website's emphasis on "handmade" crafts .

For many years I have been on Etsy, as a crochet swimsuit maker . Recently, I have noticed that there is more "mass" products made in China or other overseas countries being sold on Etsy, or through an Etsy seller located in other parts of the world (USA, for example).

Well...... Read more

I’m pleased to present Jonathan Drews from EasyFashionClothing . Jonathan’s creations are cheery, charming, and beautifully designed. A definite bonus is the care Jonathan takes to fit each creation perfectly. Jonathan, please tell us a little bit about yourself.

I spent most of my adult life working in dreary technical fields (drafting, chemical technician and quality control). It was dullness... Read more
Recently, I had a conversation with a few friends where we discussed what makes some products popular and others not. One of the things that we all agreed on is that what we all react to the most is the unusual-looking products . For some reason, the more weird and strange product design is the more appealing it is to people. I wonder why...

One person was into knitting and the advise that was given to her is to... Read more
Greetings, my name is LaVerne Lewis of GeorgiaMae Studios . I was inspired to start selling on the internet by a few friends from my local quilt guild, last year.

I was intrigued by having new possibilities in selling my handmade creations, so I decided to open an online shop and give it a try. I am a self-employed tax accountant and own my own tax business. In my spare time, I enjoy non-fiction reading, the... Read more
From man-jeggings to dresses, skirts and bizarre hats made out of wooden planks, men's fashion can be terrifyingly weird .

Below are some of the masterpieces from the Men’s Fashion week in London, in 2013.

I've never seen men look more uncomfortable or more unhappy than these three in dresses and high boots. I guess, there are not many men who could pull a look like this. :)

Seriously, for which... Read more
Remember an episode in 30 Rock , where Kenneth knits a bikini for his grandma? I thought that something like that only happens on TV. Well, that's until my recent visit to the hospital, where I found myself sitting next to a man who was crocheting a huge blanket out of a basket.

Wait time for the doctor we were both seeing was close to 2-3 hrs. So pretty soon, bringing your hobby, like crocheting,... Read more
