Welcome One and All

to the

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]

Welcoming One and All

To the Very First

[livejournal.com profile] craftalot Craft-a-Long!


As per the results of our poll, our theme is The People of Camelot. Run wild with it! This could include representations of the characters in whatever medium you choose (maybe you make dolls, maybe you cross-stitch, maybe you bake gingerbread people...) It could also include crafts inspired by the characters, such as Morgana-esque jewelry, knitted gauntlets for Arthur, or of course, the neckerchief!

The craft-a-long will continue through April 9th. Feel free to share FO's and UFO's at any time! Remember your fellow Merlin crafters are always here to provide encouragement, inspiration, and assistance!

(So... anyone already know what they're going to make?)

[Poll #1341502]

eta: and why yes I see how I misspelled villains there. *facepalm*

The new year and the long hiatus are upon us... anyone interested in a craft-a-long to help stave off Merlin withdrawal?

Since we're all into different crafts, I think we'd need to come up some kind of theme that we could work on in our own favorite mediums.

a few things I thought of:

the people of Camelot (pick your favorite character)
the Dragon
the weapons of Camelot (incl. Excalibur)
the clothes of Camelot (incl. the neckerchief, of course!)
villains & monsters

What about you? Got a great theme idea to share? If we can get together a nice list of options, I'll put together a poll to help us choose.

Also, how long do you think the first craft-a-long should last? Just a guess, I'm thinking two months or so?
