The newest issue of CraftSanity magazine arrived in my mailbox yesterday, along with the samples I sent off to be featured with my crochet coin purse pattern! This is my first published project and I'm so excited to be featured in CraftSanity! I've been a big fan of Jennifer Ackerman-Haywood's for a long time now, and even got to interview her for my Month of Mamas series last year.
If you aren't familiar with Jennifer's work, she's the producer of an awesome podcast (also called CraftSanity), a blog, and most recently her self-published craft zine. You can order your issue in the CraftSanity Etsy shop, or purchase a pdf copy (which looks great on my iPad) from her website. Here's a peek at some of the other projects featured in the spring issue:
Lisa Guitierrez of Good Knits has an adorable pattern for a crocheted spring shawlette. I've only briefly skimmed through Lisa's website, but her photos are amazing and I have a feeling I'll be returning there often (plus she's a fellow Texan!).
Jennifer also shares how to make your own loom (and includes ideas you for using your woven squares!). She also sells looms and loom kits in her Etsy shop--another awesome way to support CraftSanity.
And of course you'll find my crochet coin purse pattern inside! There are a number of steps, but it's fairly simple to make overall. I also have some crochet coin purses for sale in the Maker Mama Etsy shop if you aren't a crocheter yourself.
You'll also find crochet Easter basket patterns, yummy recipes, embroidery, and many more projects in the spring issue. Jennifer has done an amazing job (as always), and I'm honored that she published my work! So, if you haven't already, grab yourself a copy of CraftSanity magazine and get your craft on!
