Hey, Crafters! The site is buzzing with projects, challenges, and contests this week—all with the express intention to get you crafting! This year, this season, and this economy are primed to embrace the DIY sensibility and all its glory. Because you can make it yourself, for someone you love, and make it merry. Check out the fabulous projects and tutorials coming at you this week—we are busy putting together projects for everyone on your list!

  • It's the final countdown to the Make It Pink Challenge!!! There are just a few days left for you to meet the October 31st deadline. Post any handmade pink project to the Make It Pink Gallery and CraftStylish will donate $1 to Susan G. Komen for the Cure for every project posted—up to $1,000! And for every pink prayer shawl uploaded to the Make It Pink gallery in October, Taunton Books will donate $10 to Susan G. Komen for the Cure, up to $1,000! Click here for some pretty, pink project inspiration.
  • Check out the skeleton that we dragged out of our closet for Halloween. Be forewarned, it's pretty creepy. For the first CraftStylish Caption Contest, we invite you to create a caption for our frightening photo and win a year's subscription to Threads magazine.
  • Jeffery Rudell shows us how to transform our little darlings into demons with this creepy photo project —just in time for Halloween.
  • Erika Kern returns with part two of her how to turn family portraits into an embroidery pattern project. This week Erika shows us how to make an amazing family picture with incredible hand-stitchery.
  • Linda Permann's Dare to Make It Crochet-along loops into week three. This week, Linda shows us how to crochet sleeves for the Sweet Baby Hoodie, and this project turns the corner and really starts to look like something a baby could wear.
  • The Queen of T-shirt restyling, Cal Patch teaches us how to fashion a color-blocked, tiered tea dress out of a pile of old faves. Quick, easy, and oh, so cute—this might be the perfect gift for any fashion-forward girl in your life.
  • You'll wish the weather were colder just so you could snuggle up in Tina Hilton's knit lux neck warmer. Super-easy and super-fast, this knit project is another keeper for your gift list.
