A Hankering For . . . Stocking Up The Craft Bag

With the kids out of school in lest than four weeks and summer sports in full swing for us it's high time I get to stocking up my craft bag since I've already spent countless hours twiddling my thumbs waiting for practice to get over.

I've been using Pinterest for inspiration on small sized, easy projects I can add to my bag and I thought I would share some of the projects I'd like to try just in case your needing to stock up your craft bag too!

Embroidery is always something I enjoy to do and a few of these designs would be fun to make a project out of.

When I need a break from stitching a few super easy craft projects would be just the thing to keep me busy.

And then of course there is crocheting.  
A proven side-line winner in my book.  Once you know your pattern it's easy to keep right on working while still watching whats happening on the field.

I've been waiting for some time to try these projects.

Now the hard part is to figure out which project to start first!
