    I’m a big fan of the Instructables site (www.instructables.com) it has blogs on crafty things as well as on just about every other DIY you might be doing which is great – its like the one stop shopping place for ideas for DIYs.

    I haven’t really had a chance to explore many crafty blogs yet, however, there are a few I like to peruse from time to time:

    for general fashion: http://boywithbalenciaga.blogspot.com/ for anything and everything diy: http://claraemily.wordpress.com/ <— she is absolutely amazing! and for the crafting: http://jorth.blogspot.com/ I also really enjoyed : http://www.kelepsodesignstudio.blogspot.com/ at last perusal. I liked Kelepso’s recent comp entry – pure awesomeness! I would like to peruse more, and when I have the time, I shall … I may even begin my very own!

    Not yet … i am searching for a blog that would show the procedure of sewing sth, not just show the final result. That’s why currently the learning section of burdastyle is my favorite, even though it is not a blog. :)

    Well, The truth I take a lot of creative ideas from the site of Anat Landau (in Israel) and even from the Internet or stores. I make small images with fairies, murals, I build great things and try always to be more functional. In recent months I started to sew and knit. The knitting I learned from the neighbor of mine. Sewing I teach myself over the Internet.

    No I don’t. Blogs are a little annoying, it’s just about reading someone’s life, not finding inspiration… I just love burdastyle!

    I have followed a few bloggers and really enjoy them. My favorite is Lazy Girls blog. They do purses and a few other things but are always very interesting. My favorite for regular sewing is Burda Style. Too much neat stuff to miss out on.

    I like Susanna Lau of stylebubble.typepad.com. She’s a London blogger who blogs about her home town’s talent and fashion. She has a real knack for highlighting young designers hovering on the verge of success, and her pleasure in discovering talent makes her blog an easy and entertaining read. As a person from the states (Northern Cali to be exact), it’s really interesting reading about the varied fashions across the pond, and a lot of things and ideas that I may not have thought or been accessible to, but through her blog and able to create or have the ideas to do so.
