Futuregirl Craft Blog | Alice Merlino
The What’s What: Futuregirl Alice Merlino specializes in crochet and knitting. Those who have been practicing the craft for a while will find some challenging projects like Granny Straps for purses, while newbies have lots to choose from in the easy department (like these “less-crazy” phone cozies). Worried that you’ll mess up? Don’t – even the most advanced knitters make mistakes!
The Lady: Futuregirl started nearly six years ago, the brainchild of Alice Merlino, a San Franciscan who grew up being crafty in the Midwest. She balances working full time with blogging, and her creative projects have been featured on Whip Up (in a post about public crafting), CraftyPod podcasts, and in the book Anticraft.
