Do you ever get the itch to just make something?
This year I’ve been craving creative outlets, and while Pinterest has tons of crafty projects, I tend to pin them and forget them.
Then I discovered Creativebug, a website with video tutorials for everything from cake decorating and jewelry making to crochet and sewing. I no longer have an excuse to be bored. I’m always on the site watching videos and looking for new projects to start. I recently made the Fancy Tiger Sailor Top, and now I want to sew a whole new wardrobe.
Jaime Jennings and Amber Corcoran are the duo behind Fancy Tiger Crafts, a store based in Denver, CO. Their Sailor Top is simply adorable, and, bonus, it’s pretty easy to make. A monthly Creativebug subscription gives you access to the video directions as well as the print-at-home pattern.
I’m always on the lookout for a good deal, so I’m here to tell you that a Creativebug subscription is a great deal for crafty people. At only $4.95 a month, you get access to over 1,000 art and craft classes. Plus, the Fancy Tiger Sailor Top pattern retails for $18, but when you take the Creativebug Fancy Tiger Sailor Top class, you can print it at home for free.
I made my sailor top out of plaid flannel (of course!) and love throwing it on over leggings or skinny jeans. The top is a-line with raglan sleeves and a gathered neckline and is just begging to be made again out of a gingham or chambray.
These pictures were taken a few weeks ago when the temps were in the 50’s and 60’s, so I wore my sailor top with my new Stitch Fix find, the Sweet Wanderer Monay Faux Suede Jacket. I’ve been carrying my Rebecca Minkoff MAC Saddle Bag (c/o Shopbop) almost non-stop since I got it.
