One of my favorite blogging buddies, Almost Frugal, has a mini-encyclopedia of handcrafts. Not only are they do-able for practically anybody, but they'll make wonderful gifts and decorations this season!

The version in the post has a Halloween twist to it, but I'm seeing it in plaid form for Christmas. Guess what project I think I'll be doing this weekend?
Check out more of Long Thread's posts, too...she doesn't always give instructions, but the pictures are often enough for you to figure them out.
Be sure to check out the other projects in Almost Frugal's section; they're lovely.
