CHA - Craft & Hobby Association Make-It-Take-It Madness

9:00 AM

One of the nicest parts of visiting CHA is all of the fun Make-It-Take-It projects available.  Each aisle is brimming with possibilities.  It is wonderful to try new techniques, to dabble in things that I might not be willing to try without help, etc. It is quite lovely.  Here are some of my favorites from this year.

Recycled Sweater & Button Flower.  How cute is this?  This Make-It-Take-It was a ton of fun and really easy.  It was nice to meet Stefanie Girard and to take a peak at her book: Sweater Surgery.  Stefanie can be regularly found at Craft Gossip.

The above necklace is a mixture of 2 Make-It-Take-Its.  The necklace was a MITI from Making Memories.  Jill Schwartz was the designer.  The star pendant that reads "shine" was created at the Vintaj booth.  I fall more and more in love with Vintaj each and every time I see them.  Their products allow for so much creativity and our antique brass colored Soft Flex Metallics Beading Wire is a natural fit for their products.  

Then, of course, there was the Tim Holtz Make-It-Take-It.  It was pretty simple, but fun and cute.  

And finally, the most interesting Make-It-Take-It was a polymer clay pendant taught by Christi Friesen.  Christi was a wonderful and patient teacher.  She has several books!  I really enjoyed polymer clay.  I had never worked with this medium before.  It was great.  It could be as easy or as complex as you make it.  I'll definitely dabble in polymer again.
