Craft Leftovers Post Topics

Craft Leftovers has a very particular theme with a little room for flexiblity. Projects must be made from leftovers/vintage/thrifted/recycled materials. Articles must be about crafting, using up stash/leftovers, or general creativity. Inspire readers to make and think about how they interact with their supplies.
Friday How To’s: Project patterns and tutorials.
Thrift Kitchen: Creative cooking with leftovers/what’s on hand/on the cheap.
Book Reviews: creative books and patterns – either projects good for using up leftovers OR inspiring creativity/sustainability.
Redress – Wardrobe & Home – taking something old/outdated/broken and dressing it up to make it shine again. Before and afters are good for this.
Stash Bust – airing your stash and how you are using it up/organizing it/de-stashing
Round up – collections of amazing things that inspire readers to use up what’s on hand, see materials in a new light, make things. Pattern/tutorial round ups are preferred over shop item for purchase only.

The Kristin M Roach website is divided into four divisions and is the “parent site” of Craft Leftovers. All Craft Leftovers posts are also published on Kristin M Roach under the Craft Leftovers division.
