“Firsts” from the CRAFT Flickr Pool

“Firsts” from the CRAFT Flickr Pool


There’s a certain thrill I get when I try a new craft for the first time, especially when the result is something I’m proud to show off. I was poking around in the CRAFT Flickr pool and found some totally incredible “firsts:” quilts, totes, craft fairs, aprons, it’s all there! Thank you for sharing with us the joys of your crafty firsts, keep it up! Do you have a memorable experience with a craft “first?” Share it in the comments! I love reading the stories that go along with the photos. Here are just a few (above is Flickr user jessprkle’s first yarn):
