Have you been watching TLC’s new reality show Craft Wars? We have! In fact, we’ve been live-tweeting along with each episode under the hashtag #CRAFTWARS, and even giving away prizes. We’ve really been enjoying the friendly competition between talented crafters and the outrageous assignments – build a playhouse out of school supplies? Patio furniture out of pool toys? A duffel bag from sports equipment?! Sure, they may not be entirely realistic projects, but who cares? Isn’t it all in the good, crafty, glittery fun? When the grand prize is $10,000 each time, we’d certainly say it’s LOTS of fun!
Last night, the finalists’ Master Craft Challenge was to build a pet mansion using pet toys and supplies. So in fur-love fashion, we’ve pulled out a free project download for you: a simple dog bed pattern. Click here to download – hope you love it! And don’t forget, you are always welcome to share your creations with our community in our Flickr group or on Facebook. We love to see what you have been making.
For more creative summertime crafts and entertaining ideas, check out the latest issue of Stitch Craft Create magazine! It’s available now on newsstands at most major craft and bookstores, or you can find it in our online store right here.
P.S. Be sure to tune into TLC’s new show Craft Wars Tuesday nights at 10/9 Central, and tweet along with us at @SCCmag under hashtag #CRAFTWARS for a chance to win some fun crafty prizes!
