CraftStylish fires up the fall this week with a blast of DIY projects, easy-to-follow tutorials, and news from the crafty hot-in-the-spotlight all across the country. There is a flurry of craftivity coming at you this month on CraftStylish including the October challenge to support Breast Cancer Awareness month, a special series of holiday projects, and new site functionality to make it even easier for you to get your craft on! Here's a sneak preview of the week to come:

  • And the winners are: on October 8th CraftStylish will announce the four winners of the September Flower Power Challenge. The competition for this challenge is intense! It is also very beautiful: See for yourself by checking out the gallery of pretty petals.
  • The October Make It Pink Challenge begins, inviting everyone in the craft community to craft toward a cure for breast cancer. Whether you knit, sew, embroider, make jewelry, crochet, sculpt paper, or defy categorization with your creativity, this is the challenge for you! All you have to do is make it—PINK. For every project posted into the challenge gallery, CraftStylish will donate one dollar to Susan G. Komen for the Cure. Now that's something to craft over!
  • CraftStylish gets up close and personal with Project Runway (season four) alumni Sweet P and visual artist Sage Vaughn, as this husband and wife team discuss the inspiration behind their fashion collection, "Ghosts in the Garden," for Pulp Lab in Seattle.
  • Jeffery Rudell throws it down this week and invites you to be the client. That's right, you pitch your paper fantasy to the master and he will pick one lucky crafter to be his client. The prize? A handmade Jeffery Rudell original. How's that for pulp wonderful?
  • Make it pink inspiration from Jennifer Worick's darling and thoughtful stamped silver ID bracelet tutorial. This is the perfect project to let a special someone know that you are beaming them lots of love.
  • Hot on the heels of the successful zipper series comes Shannon Dennis's next great chapter of how-tos on sewing with piping. Shannon simplifies this mysterious edge and teaches you how to add some hot-dash to your creations.
  • Cal Patch shows us just how simple a machine blind hem can be with this super-clear tutorial, giving you another great skill to add to your bag of sewing tricks.
  • Kayte Terry inspires you to make it pink with ribbons in her Make a Prize Ribbon project. If you have ever stood fair-side and looked longingly at one of these beauties, now you can make (and award) one yourself!
  • While the holiday countdown is still in the early stages, you might want to check out this fetching project by Lee Meredith and make someone on your gift list a cozy blanket out of recycled sweaters. Cuddly warm and eco-friendly, this project helps you to make the most of what you already have.
  • Jennifer Stern will show you how to turn a flea-market or yard-sale frame into a home decor delight with her original embroidey design. Plus, you can make a donation of $10 to Susan G. Komen for the Cure and Jen will send you her design—free!
  • Alex Sudalnik gives us another perspective behind the scenes of an FIT design student and shows us how fashion design draws inspiration from just about anything.
  • Make your own wrapping, scrapping, or journal papers with Wendy Sloneker's mono-color paper how-to. These custom papers are not only easy and fun to make, but you can also start up your handmade holiday paper stash in plenty of time for the season.
  • CraftStylish welcomes Pamela Jaye to the crafty gang as she chronicles her adventures in starting up her own paper business in Omaha, Nebraska.
