Rachel Faucett is the author of the well-loved DIY crafts blog Handmade Charlotte. When she's not working as a designer for major brands like Anthropologie, Coats & Clark, and Plaid Enterprises, you can find her crafting on her farm outside of Atlanta with her husband and five children. She has a weekly column on Babble Voices and also contributes regularly to the Martha Stewart Living Blog, MAKE, HGTV, and more.
I recently ran into illustrator / author Heather Ross on the rooftop of the Martha Stewart offices during Alt Design Summit NYC 2012. After catching up, she pulled a copy of her latest book Heather Ross Prints out of her bag. Wow. I got so excited flipping through page after page of amazing craft projects that I almost grabbed the keys to the Martha Stewart Crafts Department to give them a go.
After flipping out over the killer craft tutorials in her new book, I asked Heather to share her current top 6 craft projects. She responded with a literal goldmine of talented friends and amazing craft projects. Without further adieu…
