How-To: Halloween Fantasy Mask Tutorial

If you have ever heard that soap making is a science, it is, and then some. For this project I thought I would attempt something one step up from melt and pour and a few steps down from made from scratch. I hadn't figured on there being more than just a few steps up from your basic melty goodness. Before I started, I scanned through a handful of websites and determined what it was I needed for milled soap, aka rebatched soap. Rebatched soap is made from grated up, freshly made lye soap that has been slowly melted back down with happy scents and soft bits like milk or honey. (Soap makers out there please excuse my ignorance on the matter if I use the incorrect terms. I'm attempting to explain it in non-soap maker terms.)

Do you aspire to make gifts for everyone this holiday season but worry about all the time it will take? Simply Sublime Gifts: High-Style, Low-Sew Projects to Make in a Snap by Jodi Kahn will show you how to make amazing gifts that are fast to make! Jodi has tons of ingenious tips to help you save time. From reusing wrappers or choosing inexpensive materials (a dusting cloth turns into kids jammies!), you'll find yourself enjoying her bevy of crafting tricks. Some of my favorites are the Handy Hand Towels (perfect for a housewarming gift), the Wonder Bread apron (featured on the cover) which uses old bread wrappers, and the Photo Baseball where you can print one of your favorite photos to create a plush baseball. Speaking of photo projects, there are quite a few great ones in this book. I love the stuffed photo ornaments that are great easy stocking stuffer gifts for the extended family. This book is definitely worth to have in your craft library for any event. I see it as the perfect "go-to" craft book for quick gifts!

After attempting to rebatch all sorts of soap I can tell you that this business of milled soap takes a lot of practice. After six failed attempts I finally hit upon something that works, follow along, throw caution to the wind and go for it (and don't mind all the steps, it isn't all that much)!
My friend, Michelle, posted a link to this awesome pattern for a knit Jack Russell Terrier on my Facebook page, and I couldn't resist sharing it. The pattern excerpt comes from the new book Best in Show by Sally Muir and Jo Osborne that contains more than 25 different patterns for different breeds of dogs. I'm also particularly smitten with the English Bulldog, too.

As we are brainstorming ideas for our own Halloween costumes,[link widoczny dla zalogowanych], I thought it would be fun to bring out a great Halloween craft project from our archives. This Halloween Fantasy Mask tutorial by Nancy Minsky of Jean Repair shows you how to transform your old denim into a gorgeous Venetian carnival-style mask. It's a stylish way to dress up this Halloween!

Annual Craft Fair

Guilty pleasure alert - yes, I raced home after work yesterday to watch Martha Stewart show Oprah Winfrey how to use a craft punch. Was I insanely jealous of all the goodies the audience members got? Oh, yeah. Did my mom e-mail repeatedly all day at work to remind me to watch the show? Of course. Check out Martha's blog for some behind-the-scenes photos.

Book Review + Giveaway: Simply Sublime Gifts
This would have been so fun to have as a kid. I even had a little plastic tractor with a detachable pull-cart! A multi-colored and leveled carpet made to look like aerial views of farm land. I bet you could make something like this with carpet squares and an X-Acto.

Years ago I attended a crafty party where we made melt and pour soap. It was awesome and crazy easy and I could see how one could get hooked. It is so easy that when I decided to make soap for CRAFT, I thought I should tackle something a little less easy. Methinks I bit off a tiny bit more than I can chew.

Crafty Chica's adorable teenage daughter Maya and her 5 year old cousin Bella show you just how easy it is to use the new Tulip Face Painting Kit on This kit comes with paints, stencils and tattoos. Going beyond Halloween, use this kit for easy face painting at kids' birthday parties!

Illustrator Jenny Bowers is featured over on Kate Spade's web site today where she answers a variety of questions, from how she finds inspiration to what she does when she hits a creative block.

Last night, I stumbled upon what has quickly become one of my very favorite Tumblr blogs. Max to the Moon is the "official blog of Max's Moon Mission." Max is an "amateur astronaut" and Max to the Moon chronicles his fictional space adventure to the moon and back. While the blog first appealed to my space geek side, I delighted in finding lots of examples of crafty fun as well. First up is Max's mission patch, a charming hand-stitched image that hearkens back to the simplicity of early Gemini and Apollo mission patches. Next is Max's spacecraft, what appears to be a small pop-up tent covered in foil and stocked with an awesome hand-drawn control panel (I know what I'm going to make with my kids this weekend ...). Finally,[link widoczny dla zalogowanych], Max's illustrations and videos chronicling his adventures look like they were great fun to make. In the spacewalk video, Max's parents hold him up to simulate weightlessness as Max makes repairs to his ship. The launch sequence video is particularly brilliant in its execution. I love the whimsy of Max to the Moon, and based on how much fun it is to read, I can only imagine the how much fun the creative process behind it must have been.

Seahorses are so strange! But I like them, for many reasons. Lia at Lia's Crafty Journey (Jakarta, Indonesia) made this fantastic stuffed seahorse. She has a tutorial up in Google Docs. I don't sew all that often, but I might try this because it makes me so happy!
Book Giveaway Time!
Three lucky CRAFT readers will each receive a copy of the book, Simply Sublime Gifts. Just tell us why you would like this book in the comments. All comments will be closed by 5pm PST on Friday, October 8, 2010. The lucky winners will be announced later on the site. Good luck!
