Make Mine Medieval Craft-Along!

The new series is upon us, so it's time to get crafting! Anything medieval-y or Merlin-y is fair game. Let's see just how creative we can be!

The craft-along will run throughout the third series. Feel free to share FO's and UFO's at any time. We love tutorials, too, if you have a chance to tell us how you did it! And if you're having trouble deciding what to make, or stuck in a crafty tight spot in the middle of a project, don't forget your fellow Merlin crafters are always here to provide encouragement, inspiration, and assistance!

In fact, why don't we start off with a dose of inspiration to get us going? I've got a few links to cool things I've bookmarked, and if you do too, we'd love to hear about it! Tell us in the comments and I'll add 'em to this post.

Hopefully inspiring links:

  • pattern for a Fierce but Really Friendly Dragon [free pattern; crochet]

  • the book Creepy Cute Crochet has an adorable knight pattern, and a Nosferatu that can double as Merlin - it's in the ears :) [@ $11US; crochet]

  • and the Creepy Cute author's website outlines how to modify one of her patterns into a Druid [pattern expansion; crochet]

  • Simplicity has some great costume patterns out right now - these capes remind me of Morgana, as do these dresses [@ $10US on website, spotted at Hobby Lobby last week for 99 cents; sewing]

  • here's a step by step chainmaille jewelry tutorial [free tutorial, jewelry-making]

    (Anyone already know what they're going to make?)
