Free Spectrespecs Cross Stitch Pattern

Add a little magic to your home decor with this Free Spectrespecs Cross Stitch Pattern!

Free Spectrespecs Cross Stitch Pattern

When I was younger, I made many attempts to complete a cross stitch project. Eventually, my floss would get tangled up or I would lose my space in the pattern and just give up. After working with Anchor Embroidery Floss Spools and loving it, I decided to give cross stitching another chance. I'm so glad I did!! Luna Lovegood (from Harry Potter) and her iconic Spectrespecs are my inspiration for this project, and I absolutely LOVE how it turned out. So much so, that I'm sharing the pattern here so you can make one for yourself!

Bookworm Patronus Tote Bag

Use colorful HTV to make your own magical Bookworm Patronus Tote Bag!

Bookworm Patronus Tote Bag

Not only are we major Potterheads, but my daughter and I are also huge book nerds as well. To combine our love of magic and reading, I decided to make a fun cut file to declare that my Patronus could certainly be a bookworm. This cut file can be used to create so many projects using your Cricut (or vinyl cutting machine). I used a variety of colorful HTV to create a new library tote bag, and I am SO excited with how it turned out.

Use the magic of thermochromic (color-changing) powder and resin to make an eye-catching bracelet & ring set!

Thermochromic (Color-Changing) Resin Bracelet & Ring Set

Resin is one of my favorite crafting materials. If you're a beginner, jewelry is something simple thing to start with, and is a great go-to gift idea. Not only is this resin bracelet & ring set quite the statement, but it has a fun color-changing twist. Like a mood ring, this set uses the magic of thermochromic (color-changing) powders to change color with heat!! I love how this set turned out, and am excited to show you how you can make a set for yourself!
