Spring is here! Finally. With springs arrival there are a slew of springy holidays and festivals to get ready for.
- April Fool’s Day and Easter April 1
- World Rat Day April 4
- National Sibling Day April 10
- Patriots Day April 16
- Earth Day April 22
- Take Your Daughter To Work Day April 26
- Arbor Day April 27
Also in April, the 4th is Hug a Newsman Day (they need some love) and April 7th is No House Work Day! Don’t forget April 18 is National Blah Blah Blah Day. Celebrate poetry all month long in April and don’t forget Lawn and Garden Month happens in this fine month.
To celebrate spring’s welcomed arrival take a look at these free patterns, projects and designs below. I may not have anything for World Laboratory Day, but I think I have some fun and cute projects for the rest of the days for ahead.
Inspired by Carnival of Venice with an added touch of vintage, this necklace is a ray of sunshine around your neck. Textured fabric and lightness of form are all masterfully juxtaposed to create a one-of-a-kind piece.
Take time picking out favorite or sentimental scraps of fabric. Play up color combinations and textures to make a truly memorable piece. Find the full project and make it your own.
This is perfect for a little one while they wait for Easter Sunday Service. God loves busy hands! Find the pattern in the link above to get started.
