We are ALL aboard that ombré bandwagon. But rounding up tons of yarn colors to create a perfect fade? Not so much. That's why we love dip-dye. Just knit or crochet your fave basic hat, dip it, put it on, and look ombré-dorable. Seriously, it's that easy.

Ready to put it all together for your first project? You'll use cut-out letters to spell the word "MAKE." After you cut and fuse your fabrics, add stitching, beads, buttons (optional), tassels and trim. Then build your skills by learning the feather stitch, a boho-style favorite.
Round out your quilt series with another curved quilt. Find out how to use raw-edge appliqué to easily achieve beautiful curves. After that, see how other makers tackle the project.

Advice From the Makers
There's something so satisfying when I get to see one of my students have a “lightbulb moment” about their watercolor practice. These little epiphanies have been scattered along my own creative path too, and I love sharing them with anybody who will listen. When we try to build a new skill, there are so many things to learn — rules, tips, techniques — that it can feel really daunting. But there are a few things that stand out as the most helpful “a-ha moments” I wish I had known about sooner.

When you've been crafting for a long time, it can be pretty amazing to look back and realize how far you've come. My first quilt, made at age 15, was a strip quilt for my musician boyfriend — yes, I actually used fabric with musical notes and, yes, he still has it! But that first quilt wasn't my best work, and while I'm glad it lasted, here's what I wish that baby quilter had known to make it even more of a success.

One the of the greatest things about drawing is that it’s a skill you can continue to refine throughout your life. No matter how old you are or how long you’ve been at it, drawing will continue to challenge you. You’ll never be bored as long as you can pick up a pencil!
