Hi my name is Eve. I started this site in March 2007 to create a blog where all the craft tutorials I had bookmarked on my computer could be together on 1 site.

Initially my idea was to try tutorials out every week, to see how well they were written and to see how easy or difficult they were. Over the last year so much has happened, Craft Tutorials has changed hands many times but I am so happy to see it is still going and with every change seems
to be getting better.

I dabble in many different crafts but by far my favorite is crochet and felting. I live with the love of my life and our 6 year old twin boys in New Zealand (Aotearoa) so lots of yummy yarn
available here!

Love Eve

I’m a freelance writer, a reader, and a wannabe crafter. I’m random. I’m emotional. I think too much and it gets me in trouble. I have a one-track mind, and right now it’s writing. I’ve been married for three years to the best man ever. I write about these things and just about everything else, too.

I have lots of other blogs if you want to find me elsewhere. I write about the TV show LOST, I write for the blogs Frugal Parenting and Bargain Hunting, I have a Freelance writing blog, I’m a writer for Craft Tutorials, and I also have a personal development blog, Evolving Blueprint. Enough blogs for you?!

I’m also available for hire if you want me to write for your blog. Any questions? Contact me at hollijkr AT gmail DOT com.


Hey, folks, I’m delighted to be one of the blogging crew for I spend most of my waking hours immersed in “projects”. When I’m not making something, I’m looking up information on how to make
something. My favorite projects are sewing, and I also enjoy crocheting and candle making. There are plenty of crafting ideas waiting out there, and I’m on a mission to discover them all. I’ve been married to the same guy for 25 years. We have 3 daughters, 19, 20 and 22. I live in sunny Florida with a couple of long-haired chihuahuas. I was originally from Cincinnati, Ohio, but moved to Florida when my mom drug me here (kicking and screaming) in 1976. I can’t imagine living anywhere else, now.
I hope you enjoy the crafts I will be passing on to you, as much as I will enjoy finding them to share.

Hi, Hope you can hel me out. I am looking for an angel pattern that is made from one dishtowel. Not the one that uses the pot holder for wings.
