Homemade Crafts for the Homestead
I have always been into homemade crafts. I started out with a passion for fiber arts and learned embroidery from a young age. I still love to spin, weave, crochet, and knit!
If you have created the self-reliant
mindset needed for urban homesteading, you will be eager to find
practical crafts that make things you will use on a regular basis.

I'm taking pictures of my various projects and have more pages to add
