Craft Along with GIY: April 2017

Time for a new craft-along! During April, I will work on a craft project for the monthly theme. Around April 28, I will post my completed project. You can share a link to your project on that post or at any time during the month on this post. On April 30, I will compile the links on the Craft Along with GIY page.

To participate:
1.  If you're a blogger, add the Craft Along with GIY icon to your post. Link the icon to this page:

2.  On either this theme announcement post or my completed project post, leave a comment with a link to your project. You can link to your blog, webpage, Instagram, or anywhere else readers can see it.

The theme for April is that goth clubwear favorite: Khaki Pants.

I'm kidding! Just a little April Fools' Day joke. ;)  As a survivor of several years of Catholic school dress code, I want nothing to do with khaki pants.

The no foolin' theme for April is Outdoors. As always, you can interpret this broadly:
  • dress up your outerwear with patches or embroidery
  • sew cushions for your patio chairs
  • make markers for your vegetable or herb garden
  • decorate a sun hat
  • make a wind chime
  • paint a landscape
  • make a bird feeder
  • refashion an old umbrella into a parasol (I'd love to see this one!)
Your project does not have to be goth style or relate to goth in any way. If you like fairies, frilly gingham (or even khaki pants!), that's okay. The fun is in the crafting. :)

I'm not sure what my project will be... probably something for my back yard as I am FINALLY having landscaping done. :D More on that later.
