Craft Along with GIY: March 2017

Time for a new craft-along! During March, I will work on a craft project for the monthly theme. Around March 29, I will post my completed project. You can share a link to your completed project on that post or at any time during the month on this post. On March 31, I will compile the links on the Craft Along with GIY page.

To participate:
1.  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. If you're not a blogger, you can link to your webpage, Instagram, or anywhere else readers can see it. (Please link directly to the project page.)

The theme for March is Rhymes with "That"... which means your project can be based on any word that rhymes with "that." As always, you can interpret this broadly:
  • make bat jewelry
  • applique a cat onto a pillow cover
  • decorate a hat
  • make a vat of homemade soap or lotion
  • stencil something with glossy paint over matte
  • DIY a tattered trad goth outfit
  • sew a bag for your yoga mat
  • fix up a habitat for your gerbil
  • refurbush a secondhand chair on which someone once sat

I will be sewing a placemat.


  1. Cool, can't wait already working on projects

  2. I snickered at these rhymes, I love witticisms and puns >D

    1. I love puns also.

      I saw your perfectly timed post from yesterday... Look at that, a tattered hat. :) I'd like to include it in the March craft-along roundup, if you don't mind.

  3. Very cool idea!I love seeing your crafts and really hope to participate this month!

    1. Thanks very much! I hope you can join in. :)

  4. Hello, I've completed my project but cannot figure out how to turn the icon into a link!!! I'm also using blogger/blogspot, so could you please help me figure this out? Thanks a con!

    1. Sure!
      Insert the icon image into your blog post.
      Click on the image to select it. (It should look sort of highlighted or greyed, indicating it's selected.)
      Click on the Link button in the toolbar.
      In the Edit Link box, paste the URL in the Web address field.
      You may want to edit or delete the Text to display field.
      Click OK.

      I look forward to seeing your project! :)

    2. Hello, I think I've got it!
      I posted on my blog here:
      and my instagram here:

    3. Flats! :D Great project! I love the end result; the pyramid studs were the perfect choice. Thanks for participating in the craft-along!

    4. Thank you! I have been much more pleased with these flats since I changed them. Thank you for hosting this craft along! I hope to participate again in the future

  5. :-O so much that could be done for this! And only five nightshifts until I have some days off again and can start XD thank you for doing these challenges!
