A friend of mine and I were discussing the concept of a side hobby the other day. You see, we both primarily knit and crochet, but we have other crafts we like to dabble in when time allows.

I like to sew very basic things that only require sewing in straight lines. One day I will progress past straight lines, but for now this allows me to make lots and lots of drawstring bags. I really want to make a quilt, but at this stage in my sewing knowledge, I’m hesitant to invest the money in that much coordinating fabric.

I do some jewelry making as well. My grandmother and step-mother both taught me how to do this. I’ve got a nice stash of beads and charms, and I like to use it to make stitch markers.

This past week, I’ve also renewed my interest in scrapbooking and paper crafts. I’ve been making bookmarks, and I’m working on ideas for frame-able wall art. I’m also looking for any excuse to decoupage.

What about you? What are your side hobbies? What’s your primary hobby?
