Inspiration can come from a lot of different things. In general my inspiration comes from the Internet. That can be from other bloggers or a picture on Pinterest, Google or Instagram. Normally it is not the thing in the picture that i want to (re-)make, but something in the picture that gives me a idea to something else. This can be colors, texture, og a surety pattern used in the picture that gives me a idea for something That I can see myself make and/or use. In general don’t make something if I don’t know the end use of the project otherwise I’ll never get it finished and it will end up a never ending story.
I also get inspiration from my everyday. My son has been a great inspiration for different projects.
His love for super heros are the reason I made the Captain America shield blanket and I have made hats for him with Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (TMNT) and I’m currently on a big blanket for him with TMNT. This is a big blanket with a LOT of small granny squares about 1900 of them to be exact. I made about 100 of them now so this may end up as a project that I’ll never get done. 🙂
Inspiration can also come from the person I’m making a gift for. This how every depends on how well I know the person. This is where gift making can be hard. The better you know someone the easier it is to make something for them.
I’m currently working on a projet that was inspired by the Sweeper Cover I made. The proces of making the bobbles gave me a idea for a new project that I hope to share with you later in the summer.
Are you also using Pintereste, Instagram or Google to get inspired..? or do you just do what every you feel like..? Where does your inspiration come from..? I’ll love to here.
