If you ever thought there were limits to what could be done with a needle & thread and an old pillowcase then you have yet to discover the wonders of Craftster.

As the name suggests, this is a community for all things craft. Whether it's sewing, knitting, crochet, interior decorating or good old kids activities for a rainy afternoon, this is the place to go. A sort of Blue Peter nirvana. People are surprisingly generous about providing instructions for those who want to recreate their design and there's a great sense of collaboration to the place.

Current favourites include the Spiderman pillowcase finding new life as a seriously cool skirt, a prom dress made entirely of Skittles wrappers (yes, really), wallets fashioned from trashy novel jackets and, last but not least, something no home should be without - a knitted bath tub (complete with Jared the Goblin King aka David Bowie).
