  • Sustainable Crafting

    Crafting is fun and fulfilling, but can sometimes feel wasteful. With Earth Day coming up this month, we here at Leisure Arts have been thinking about how to reduce waste and make our hobbies more sustainable. Whether you want to waste less or just need to make room for new supplies, we can help you make your crafting more eco-friendly. From home decor to wardrobe updates, being sustainable with your crafting is easier than you think.

    Diamond Art

    Dress up your wardrobe with Diamond Dotz. With strong adhesive and 13 faceted gems, you can step up your dazzle with ease. Diamond Art Freestyle is all about using extra gems or buying your favorite colors and letting the dots fall where they want! While this book provides more of a guide, it's a great first step on your Freestyle journey. It's also a perfect way to use up those extra gems without throwing them away or having to find space and storage for them.

    Quilting

    What do you do with all those old T-shirts that never get worn but you don't want to throw out? Take those treasured memories and well-earned mementos and turn them into a quilt! Perfect to give as a gift or remind yourself of good times, T-shirt quilts are a great way to sustainably craft. You can use scraps and small precuts to embellish them, and can even use an old top sheet as your base. Reducing, reusing, and recycling has never been so cozy!

    Crochet

    If you're looking for ways to waste less in your craft, turn to your stash! Stash busting is a term for purposefully using up your stash of yarn, fabric, and other materials. It's also one of the best ways to promote sustainability in your own home! It's the waste-not, want-not mentality.

It's especially great for adding to existing materials, like jackets, purses, pillows, and more. It adds a dimensional element to old pieces in a modern, fun way. Even the smallest scraps of yarn can be salvaged with punch needling!

  • Live Your Best #Yarnist Life

    Do you or a loved one have a serious addiction to all things yarn? Do you buy more yarn than you need, knit more than you can gift, or crochet with all your spare time? If you answered “yes” to any of these questions, you may be a yarnist! Being a yarnist, yarn artist, is not something to be ashamed about, but rather something to embrace and even expand. Yarn isn’t just for knitting and crochet anymore, check out what else you can do with it.

    Yarn: 

    Yarn can be used for so many crafts, life hacks, and home décor projects. Just like these rainbow vases, you can use yarn to create endless possibilities for common home décor items. It’s the perfect accent for your home and creativity! 

    Macrame: 

    Yarn is associated with popular crafts like knit and crochet, but you don’t have to limit yourself! You can create hybrid craft projects by using yarn in place of other materials. Macrame, for example, typically uses craft cord, but it’s nothing that a bulky yarn can’t replace! Update this retro craft with a new, soft spin. 

    Knit: 

    If you’re a classic yarnist or want to dip your toe into the yarnist life, try knitting! With just your needles and hands, you’ll walk 2-by-2 into home décor updates, wardrobe refreshes, and gift giving triumphs. If you’re an absolute beginner, try a book like 1-2-3 Knit. Knitting can be as easy as it sounds. 

    Crochet: 

    Another one for the traditionalists, crocheting is as fun as it is fulfilling. You can do whatever you want with it. Do you need a new rug? Crochet it. Have you been searching for the perfect sweater? Crochet it! Does your home need a bit of revitalization? Nothing a crochet afghan can’t fix. Whether you’re a beginner or a seasoned yarnist, Afghans For All Seasons is perfect for living your best yarn life. 


    There are endless ways of becoming a yarnist. So, what are you waiting for? Buy a skein, or five, and show the world your best yarnist self. Don’t forget to tag us @leisureartsinc and #leisurearts so we can see what’s happening in your crafty corner! 

    Happy yarning!
