Craft Lightning – Day 2 Roundup

Day 2 of Craft Lightning already! If you missed the Day 1 roundup of awesome fast crafts, be sure to go check it out! I can’t believe how many awesome bloggers are joining in on Craft Lightning this week. Maybe I shouldn’t be so surprised… fast crafting is nothing new… but with as busy as our lives have gotten, for those of us who feel a need to craft, having the opportunity to do some fast crafts is essential!

Here are today’s awesome fast craft tutorials as part of Craft Lightning:

Jen from 100 Directions made a fun Mustache bag out of a t-shirt… and even more fun, the mustache stamp she used is one she designed – but you can buy in stores (I know, pretty cool, right??)!
