A cardboard box loom?!?!
littlecraziness:

i’ve always wanted to learn how to weave, but i was definitely not going to buy a loom just for learning. this cardboard box loom is, therefore, one of my greatest finds lately. i’ll have to find a suitable box first, but as soon as i get my hands on one, i’l get my weaving on! ;)

Fabric-edged business cards…

I’m starting to look into my own business cards and these look great. Really incorporates the textiles side to my work.

Sewn Business Cards | Freshly Given
More and more people are asking me about my blog/shop/other crafty ventures and I wish I had some business cards to give out! I love the ones from MOO, but until I earn a little more moulah, I think I will make some myself. I adore these ones from Freshly Given. I like the tactile feel of them with the fabric around the outside and the stitching. Perfect for a craft/clothing shop right?!

More “yarn bombing” for your viewing pleasure…
gardensinunexpectedplaces:

Plantbombing!

Yarnbombing — or the cozying up of the urban landscape with random acts of gorgeous knitting — has already been seen popping up in a number of cities. Now San Francisco-based urban knitter and guerilla gardeners Heather Powazek Champ and Derek Powazek have publicly come out with yarn bombing’s next evolution: planting low-maintenance species in beautifully hand-knitted yarn pockets all over their fair city.
Inspired after this year’s International Yarn Bombing Day, the husband and wife pair call their project “Plantbombing,” and it combines Heather’s love of “urban knitting” and Derek’s skill at gardening. Using yarn, a bit of soil, and some hardy plants, the result is a hands-off, smile-inducing work of art. 
For those of you who want to try making your own plant pockets, Heather’s site provides the instructions to get started.
