Playing with Fiber Arts

Some of us may sew, knit, crochet or embroider as our craft of choice. People who use the needle in art hail it as a supreme stress reliever, and they always have such gorgeous creations to share when they’re finished. I have an aunt who crochets a beautiful afghan for every major family event; if you’re getting married, graduating or having a baby, you know you’re going to get one of the most beautiful creations ever made by her.

That said, sewing isn’t the only way you can have fun with fabric. There are oodles of fiber arts out there just waiting for you to dive in. If you’re new to using fiber in your crafts, here are a few simple projects to start out with.
