Photocrafting Leggings?

Two photos of a leggings I designed with 16 b/w photos to give to the mother of a toddler.
Leggings I designed with 16 photos of a favorite toddler.

I’m always on the lookout for something different to use with photos, especially for a gift. You can imagine my surprise and excitement to find leggings on Zazzle available for photocrafting! Needless to say, I couldn’t wait to create a pair. I decided to do a pair for the mother of a toddler and away I went. The leggings arrived in good time and looked great — the fabric is a good quality and the images were clear. I took them to my own yoga class for show and tell. One person who loved them said she didn’t have children but it would be fun to use photos of her dog.

This is a much more interesting creative process than many photocrafting projects. It requires some planning! The good news? There’s a quick and easy method. The challenging news? It’s a wonderful project for those of you with some artistic flair and imagination.

Summer Beach Towel

Whatever you’ve been doing this summer, it will be one to remember! And photocrafting is all about memories. So how about making a beach towel with a special memory of the summer. It’s quick and easy! With luck, you’ll still have a few weeks to enjoy using it and next summer it will be a reminder of a happy time or place in the summer of 2020.

Photocrafting Anniversary Favorites

We’re celebrating our first year of Thanks so much for your support. Our Five Favorites today will be from our last year of posts — what did we think was especially fun to make, what do we find ourselves doing again, what do we wish we could do more often?


Masks with Photos?

Masks are now a part of daily life in much of the world. While the coronavirus pandemic continues, masks are recommended wear whenever we’re in public, especially if it’s difficult to stay 6′ apart. While this may not be our favorite fashion statement, I was pleased to find I could feed my photocrafting passion and create something timely and useful. BagsOfLove offers a set of four custom masks (with four different designs). What could be better? Four different designs gave me an opportunity to play with different kinds of photos, photocrafting at its best!


Anniversaries and Photos

My niece, Shell, has an anniversary coming up so she was ready to do some photocrafting for a special gift. She really likes to support small businesses and artists, and Etsy is a great place to get unique personalized gifts for your significant other. Of course, that includes personalized photo gifts just perfect for photocrafting. Shell found an Etsy shop called CreateGiftLove that offers personalized wood and leather gifts and decided on a photo keychain.
