DIY (Do -It-Yourself) !!

Who says crafts are for kids & little old ladies? Researching on the web, I've noticed that there are trendy, hip & funky crafters out there with lively, cute interesting designs.

The craft techniques may be 'old world ' eg. crocheting, quilting, applique,.. but given a modern twist -- such vibrant colours... many are fashion based ... I suspect they are either fashion designers or graphic designers ...
