Try Something New Every Month: A crafty challenge

So, I really like the idea of “Try Something New Every Month” for 2015 from Stephanie from Swoodson Says. I’m not sure if I’ll be included in her blog roundup for this idea or not, but it inspired me to scrounge up a list of ideas of crafts and techniques I’ve been meaning to try, but haven’t managed to get around to.

500-x-500

It was difficult at first to think up ideas that a) I haven’t tried before…or at least not tried with actual instructions since I tend to just half-ass things a lot, and b) wouldn’t cost me a fortune to attempt. Because sure, I’d love to try out weaving on a multi-shaft loom, or wood burning, or glass etching, but I do not own any of those supplies, and I don’t want to go broke in my attempt at this idea. I also don’t have much space for even MORE craft supplies, so I tried to stick within the realm of what I already do.

Here’s what I’ve come up with so far (subject to edits as I think up more):

Sewing
Paper piecing
Zippers

Weaving
Pickups
Leno

Crocheting
Lace
Tatting
Tunisian

Knitting
Honeycomb stitch
Provisional cast-on
Double knitting
Entrelac
Felted
Latvian braid

Embroidery
Satin stitch
Chain stitch

Miscellaneous
Polymer clay
Calligraphy/lettering

Yes, I’ve tooled around with felting, embroidery, and clay projects, but see aforementioned half-assed-ness. I’d like to actually learn the techniques and not just have at a rushed version that I’ve made up out of my own head.

Just one thing a month…try one new thing each month.
