Lots of links

Big thanks to all the people who've linked to my blog or shop recently! I've discovered so many lovely new sites to browse.

Scoutie Girl finds fabulous things, and collects them all together for you to read about. More Ways to Waste Time is a great source of inspiration, not a waste of time at all. Cafe Cartolina shows off gorgeous textiles. Carina's Craftblog features beautiful mosaics of Etsy faves, as does Inkspot Workshop. Craftzine is of course indispensible reading. And via One Pretty Thing, an exhaustive round-up of amazing DIY ideas, I found La Fuji Mama and her instructions for making a furoshiki bag.

I had to make one myself immediately - I sewed together 4 vintage napkins, and tried it on different bag handles. One piece of cloth, 2 different bags! They hold quite a surprising amount of stuff, too.

Another example here, and more instructions here.
