I’m so excited to start this class. I enrolled as soon as I found it! It’s so much easier to do when you see how the petals are shaped by the hands.

As a class project, you will apply these techniques to your tulip design.

If you take a look on Etsy, you will see that talented men and women all over the world sell some incredible embroidered work! Not just on embroidery hoops but there are lots of different items you could embroider and sell.
Ideas for embroidered products:
- Pencil cases
- Shopping totes
- Wall art
- Cushion Covers
You could create some rather unusual patterns and designs of rugs and fluffy wall art after picking up the skills in this class. I’ve tried it once, but it took quite a long time. I have found though that with crafts and projects that take quite a while, tend to be the crafts that you become most proud of.
If you are interested in textile design at all, then you should check this out.
“Are you ready to jump into deeper weaving waters and graduate from a cardboard loom? Want a woven project you’re proud to hang on your wall? Ready to get familiar with a few basic stitches that will take you where you want to go with your woven designs?
DIY Woven Art author, Rachel Denbow, designed this project-based class for the weaving novice with step-by-step instructions that are easy to digest, so you no longer have to figure it out the hard way.
You’ll learn how to warp your loom, add plain weave, utilise rya knots, incorporate soak, create shapes, and a few important finishing steps to get your work off your loom and onto your wall.
We’ll also work through tips on choosing colours, a basic overview of yarn weights and varieties, and a few troubleshooting tips in case you get hung up along the way.
Don’t have your frame loom? Rachel shares a simple and inexpensive way to create a sturdy loom to finish this project as well as household items you can use in place of weaving tools to get started.”
Just like with Crochet, there are lots of items you can create to fill an online store! It’s a enjoyable hobby, and if you’re good at it then you should sell your items, even if it is just to fund a yarn obsession!
This embroidered typography class looks like so much fun! Again, you can stitch lots of different products that you could potentially sell, so it’s a win-win!
Screen printing is one of the skills I would love to learn! I always think I will be able to design something amazing to put on to a bag or T-shirt, but I’m not sure that’s true. Although it would be rather wonderful to create sustainable, washing machine friendly gifts for Christmas and birthdays.
Of course, if you are going to make things to sell, you will want them to last. Instead of using t-shirt transfer paper for transferring designs to fabric, I think screen printing is a long lasting approach and much higher quality.
Sewing is one of the easiest skills to master, and there are so many ideas for products that you could make and sell!
- phone pouches/table pouches
- camera cases and straps
- laptop sleeves
- fabric keyrings
- shopping bags
I learned how to make a quilt from blog tutorials and dang it I wish I had taken an online course or watched videos. It didn’t last, and the binding was shocking. There are so many beautiful quilts out there nowadays, and you also don’t just have to make actual blankets.
You can make:
- laptop sleeves
- hot water bottle covers
- pencil cases
Another skill that I would dearly love to learn is how to use Adobe Illustrator and how to create my patterns! You could create gift wrap, notebook covers, fabric/material, design stationery, etc. I would love it! This class is next on my list to learn.
The lettering classes from Brit and Co are amazing, and this package helps you save money on the three most popular classes:
- Calligraphy 101
- Chalk lettering
I’ve talked about these classes a few times, most notably in Learn to hand letter: 20 Hand Lettering Resources For Total Noobs!
Oh my goodness!
What a list. I tried to find various crafts that you might want to try, or crafts you may not have initially thought about trying until now.
I’ve enrolled in about 3 of these classes and completed 1. I love Skillshare, especially the app’s; I can learn when I’m lying in bed and everything.
